    That's because Yaonet bought all rights to stand-up comedy in China and since the VC is Laurie Bream, I doubt they'd ever allow for it ever again

    When Stephen Colbert seemed awkward interviewing Conan O'Brien, I was trying to figure out if he had a thing against Conan (but why? What's not to love about Conan???) Now I see he's just like that with other people, too - Not very nice.

    How about the art of 相聲 in China, and Hong Kong's entertainment 棟篤笑? Chinese 相聲 has a very long history. I am not exactly sure how long it actually dates back but am sure the length of its history is not difficult to reaearch. 黃子華 in Hong Kong is considered the father of 棟篤笑。The most current stand-up comedian in Hong Kong is called 李思捷. Those are all stand-up comedy and stand-up comedians. 王祖蓝 is also somewhat a comedian. He is also in Hong Kong. Please advise.

    I thought he said that in a joking way... so unfortunately he’s not because that claim is bullshit. Chinese standup comedy “Xiang Sheng” or crosstalk traces back 200 hundred years and is still going strong. Ok it makes sense if he didn’t grow up watching Chinese standup comedy because Xiangsheng is a northern Chinese thing originated from Tian Jian area. Wish he did his research before say something that ignorant about his background .

    Yes, even in China Mainland, the most developed city - Shanghai City. Your parents always regard you as everyone or everythings from the real life but not a real kid of their, sometimes, you are probably a boiled kid, black sheep, homeless guy, alian or even a criminal! You could be everyone or anything they totally dislike or despite but not their child. Hahahaha, but, indeed, they love you. which you really know.

    i don’t think he can represent Chinese and he doesnt know what’s happening in China, there are so many different types of stand-up comedy, talk shows all around on internet or on tv these days in China. And stand-up comedy has been in China for at least hundreds of years also

    stand up comedy show in China is called Xiang sheng. It has 200-300 yrs of history. Today there are only 1000-2000 perfessional xiang sheng performers in China. Their earning is from few millions to ten thousand U.S dollars annually. Example: ruclip.com/video/EgHtbmUauPk/%D0%B2%D0%B8%D0%B4%D0%B5%D0%BE.html

    He is so out of touch with Chinese culture! Stand up comedy in China is an art form called tuo kou xiu (脱口秀)or xiang sheng (相声). It isn't just entertainment, it is regarded as a cultural art form even. There are variations to the monologue format and can involve a duo or trio of "stand up comedians"! Ignoranus!

    Stephen, I know you look down to the Asian people in a subtle way. I can tell that. But please stop interviewing those shame of Asians. There are tons of Asian people who are not so morbid and who know their origin better. “How to American”, even White people don’t bother writing such a dick-sucking book.
