    Ken Shimura, one of Japan’s most famous

    comedians, dies at 70 after contracting the


    Lived: Feb 20, 1950 - Mar 29, 2020


    A household name in his native Japan, Ken Shimura’s popularity bridged generations. The comedian was
    a constant fixture on Japanese television for the better part of five decades, rarely straying from his crowd-
    pleasing brand of comedy skits. Yet despite the outlandish nature of his most famous characters — the
    rubber-faced funnyman was sometimes referred to as “Japan’s Robin Williams — he was known to be
    somewhat shy and quiet when not performing.

    Shimura’s half-century run as one of Japan’s most recognizable comedians ended March 29, when he died
    at the age of 70 due to pneumonia caused by COVID-19. Upon being admitted to a Tokyo hospital on March
    20 after developing a fever and experiencing respiratory problems, Shimura was diagnosed with severe pneumonia;
    a day later, he was put on a ventilator and never regained consciousness. On March 23, it was announced Shimura
    had tested positive for COVID-19, thus becoming the first prominent Japanese entertainment figure to be diagnosed
    with the virus.
