Who is Othello?

Othello, is a female Japanese comedy duo who, once famous for their manzai act, are now both popular television talents and appear frequently on Japanese variety shows.

The two comedians, Tomoko Nakajima, and Nahomi Matsushima are sometimes known as "Black" and "White" Othello, respectively, because Nakajima has darker skin than Matsushima. According to the Japanese Othello page, their duo name comes not only from their contrasting complexions, but also their personality roles, with Nakajima having the more darker, scheming character, and Matsushima playing the innocent boke role in the manzai pattern.
