So many "China podcasts" are just that – about Chinese history, politics or other, similarly wonky subjects. Not that there's anything wrong with that (we love us some history) but, sometimes, we yearn for the lighter side of China – and now, Kung Fu Komedy has delivered. To see their previous podcasts, click here.
This week, the Kung Fu Komedy krew chat with Dashan.
China’s most famous foreigner Dashan’s (大山) back and the man’s on a mission. He’s aiming to produce the world’s first full-Mandarin comedy special and take it on tour. He joined in the Kung Fu Komedy Club grand opening and it’s clear he’s well on the way. We had a chat about his plans to make it happen, the state of stand-up across China and some of the insane gigs he’s been putting himself through.
Every week, Andy Curtain tracks down the most interesting person he can find and asks them what they're doing in China. To subscribe, add the Stuck in the Middle podcast on iTunes, or copy this link to use in your favorite podcatcher app.
