    I think Stephen was being a dick. Producers probably pushed Jimmy on the show and Stephen thought he wasn't big enough to sit on the couch, that's why he mentioned it's your first time. Stephen wanted to do the segment and move on. I guess Stephen has DICK side like everyone else.

    I got from this interview that Stephen doesn’t know many Asians or has a lot of Asian friends lmao. He’s like othering Jimmy and doesn’t know what to say to a normal Asian guy speaking English or something.

    the very best i take about this interview/talk is that Stephen let Jimmy actually talk and did not deviate much from the topics, I always admire people who do that, instead of talking more about themselves and end up drifting into other less interesting topics

    I think he is really funny and smart, but so not true that there wasn’t any hk comedian or stand up show, Most famous stand up comedian Dayo Wong(黃子華)he’s been out there doing standup for 20yrs! Almost everyone knows him from canton area or who natively speak Cantonese!

    • Maplenerd22

    Excuse me? There is standup comedy in China! and it’s called “Xiang Sheng” and it has been huge element of Chinese art since Qing dynasty, when standup comedy was non-existent in the West! Solo and cross talk are the two forms of xiangsheng standup comedy. Apparently Mr. Yang is one of those southern barbarians (Nan Man 南蛮) and has no idea of Chinese art culture and history.

    Obviously there has been stand-up comedy in China for many years, and obviously different cultures will do stand-up comedy a little different, its totally culture based. It is ignorant of the guest saying the silly thing. In China, the stand-up comedy is called a different name, Xiangsheng.

    There are tons of Stand-up comedies in China, it's called 相声 (xiangsheng), it's literally a form of traditional art from Northern China. Xiangsheng requires many classic skills and years of practice to make sure the puns are delivered correctly and with max. funny-ness due to the complicity of the Chinese language. Parents would send their kids to xiangsheng artist's house to train them from a young age and it's considered an honor to be able to call these respected artists your teacher. Generations and generations of artists dedicate their lives to this art form and he's here like "oh there's no stand-up comedy in China." smh

    This felt a little awkward. I find him very funny, and his jokes came naturally, what's unnatural is the way the host laughs at it, it's like he didn't find it funny at all, but forced himself to chuckle a little.

    Jimmy is the kind of inspiration and role model Chinese people need. And this is coming from your typical Asian UCLA science major graduate who immigrated to the USA at the age of 13 the same way he did (and I am also from Hong Kong, like holy shit). I honestly believe I would have never been able to do what he does. I think he is amazingly funny. He uses his background and what he knows so well in his comedy. Asians, especially oriental Asians, need people like him, to show ourselves that we are not just a bunch of quiet small humans who are good at math and science, and that we can and are free to do anything we want and love and still be successful at it.
