    Honestly, I feel like it is less that Stephen is traditionally a bad host (we've seen him save interviews before, too) or that he doesn't get Jimmy's jokes (I just think he's too smart for that). If I had to guess, it really seems like he thinks Jimmy is just not funny, borderline seems offended by his material.

    I think there definitely is stand-up comedy in China.
    See here for an example of Chinese stand-up comedy: ruclip.com/video/pFTgrKWFI_k/видео.html&t=652s
    It's called a cross-talk. It can be done by two artists or just one. The art form has been around for as long as half of the US history.

    The closest I have seen to stand-up comedy in China was in a night club in Ning Bo...
    where they had a very poor quality magician on.. who kept dropping his shit, so this guy drunk guy from one of the tables gets up and starts doing his "Kung Fu" shit & flying kicks, but since he is drunk he kicks the magicians shit all over the place.
    So the magician starts scrapping with Bruce lee and the magician must have needed glasses because his punches kept missing
    and Bruce lee 's been on the Chinese wine so he cannot hit anything either.
    But the funniest shit was everyone just sat at their tables talking , not giving a shit what was going on.

    I kinda feel like Jimmy O is totally giving up his identity as him from home country and making fun of Asian immigrant stereotypes. Although he think it's a joke, it is not an appropriate time because racism is prevalent. His acting reminded me what Stepin Fetchit did to African Americans.

    there is something similar to stand up comedy in china known as "cross talking", it's basically stand up but always done between two people. They have a skit that plays out like a conversation and jokes or humorous situations are described. This version is more traditional, more in Northern China. But in more metropolitan areas, single person monologue that is exactly the same as stand up comedy also exists.

    I gotta tell you that there is some stand-up comedy in China. One of them its called "BaoZhou Big Event" have successfully survived for 5 seasons (5 years) and got banned recently by the SARFT because they have some contents insult the WW2 heroes(used their names in commercial comedy ads).

    Jimmy: “Play someone who doesn’t hunch his back. . . So”
    Stephen: “Nice to meet you. Thanks for coming”
    The abrupt pause made it seem a bit cut short or awkward. A closing statement then a thank you would've been better. "Well I have a . . Hunch. . You'll get a lot more opportunities. Jimmy O Yaeng everybody!" Snaps and points to the camera with one arched eyebrow👏

    No? There is stand-up comedy in great China! In Hong Kong, it is called "棟篤笑". Taiwanese call it "独角喜剧", Shanghainese call it "独角戏". In northern China, this is "单口相声", those comedians just do not walk around that much on stage as american stand up comedians do. Google this if it sounds foreign to you! And you may find more other names beyond my knowledge.
