THE GREAT LOL OF CHINA

American Comedian Jesse Appell’s journey though Chinese Comedy

The Great LOL of China is part standup, part comedy lecture, and all about what’s funny in China right now.
It incorporates Jesse Appell’s five years of writing and performing comedy in China, first as a Fulbright scholar researching the traditional art of Xiangsheng “Cross-talk” Comedy, and later as a web celebrity and TV comedian in the middle kingdom.
The show has tips for learning Chinese and living abroad, music videos about life in Beijing, and lots of stories about learning how people can come together through laughter.

Show length: Around 1 hour including Q&A
Show language: Mostly English, some Chinese (with subtitles or translation).
