Regular fixture

 


志村けんの訃報はやはりショックでした。Democracy Nowという番組でも触れています。左寄りの番組なのでロックダウンを導入せず、検査も消極的な日本政府の犠牲者のような扱いです。あのコントのノリは英語ではslapstickというようです。

In Japan, the popular comedian Ken Shimura has died after contracting COVID-19 at the age of 70. Known for his slapstick style, he was a regular fixture on Japanese variety shows. His death comes as the Japanese government has resisted imposing a lockdown or social distancing measures, citing concerns for the economy. Japan recorded over 170 new cases on Sunday, 68 of those in Tokyo. Testing has remained extremely limited.

fixtureもhousehold nameもどの世代にも愛されたことを表現していますが、これを説明的にすればShimura, who attracted fans of all generations with his slapstick comedy and funny facesというABCニュースの表現になるでしょう。Jerry Lewisというアメリカのコメディアンに例えています。
