6: full-fledged (sekitori class) rakugo sumo (lies) story teller Utamusashi, jk Morimusashi (a career like Sodachizakari, but speaks about his wins)

Sanyuutei Utamusashi gets some attention -  getting compared to baseball star Hideki Matsui by the writer. He himself uses it as a joke at the rakugo self-introduction, "my real name is Hideki Matsui", after having been told in the 90s by a female shamisen mandan storyteller he looks like Matsui. Morimusahi  entered Musashigawa-beya as Gifu pref. middle school judo champion and retired with injury without even having a regular debut bout. Entering at the same time as Takatoriki,  he tells though that he has a career record of 1-1 (maybe in maezumo and the data are missing in the DB). That same year he entered the rakugo world, still at age 15. In 1998 he made it to prime performer, sekitori class rakugo-ka.

He likes to start his performance with the head shimpan mono-ii standard explanation intro: "I'll explain about the conference just held." - and has as favorite subject "shitaku-beya anecdotes" http://rakugo-channel.tsuvasa.com/nekonosara-utamusasi

He was mostly talking about the lockdown (stay home vs homestay), -> channel surfing onto ozumo -> other stuff.
