There’s something absurdly wonderful about doing Chinese comedy in America about Beijing street food. That’s the situation I found myself in these past two months. If the Great LOL of China blog has been a bit spotty recently, it might be because I have been touring all over Canada and the US. Chinese comedy is no longer tied to the traditional Chinese borders. In the past 60 days, I’ve done 25 shows in 13 cities, from Vancouver, to Honoloulu, to Los Angeles, to Boston, and even some stops in rural Missouri and Ohio added in. In the following weeks, I hope to share some of the experiences I had on the tour. But for now, I just want to share some of the jokes! So take a minute or two today to sit back and laugh. Chinese comedy has made it to America. Watch: Jesse performing Chinese standup live at the University of Washington, October 2014 The Great LOL of China is a blog that aims to share the topics and themes that make Chinese audiences laugh. Its creator is Jesse Appell , an intercultural comedian who performs Chinese-language comedy all around China.
