"Egashira 2:50" in Olympic torch relay

Hideharu Egashira (江頭 秀晴, Egashira Hideharu, born July 1, 1965, in Chiyoda, Saga), better known by his stage name Egashira 2:50 (江頭2:50, Egashira Nijigojuppun), is a Japanese comedian. He is known for his appearances in many TV shows and his transgressive style.

His performance heavily relies on shock value, which the Japanese public sees as obscene and vulgar. He usually acts bare-chested and wearing black leggings and shoes, evoking a puroresu wrestler, though he has also appeared wearing a white fundoshi. Many of his gags are very physical and capitalize on his contortionism skills to surprise the audience. His motto is "better to appear once and become a legend than to be a regular all season long."

Polls conducted in Japan by Oricon and Nikkei Entertainment! have voted him as the most annoying comedian. However, this is only a persona, as discussions on Mecha-Mecha Iketeru! have shown that he is extremely polite and humble when the camera is not rolling. He is known for extremely good manners when dealing with TV staff, which may be part of why he is still on TV. Additionally, his frequent co-stars Yusuke Santamaria, Tsuyoshi Kusanagi and Ninety-Nine, are declared fans of Egashira.
