Chinese Crosstalk Comedy

[Turn on CC in second video.]

Crosstalk, also known by its Chinese name xiangsheng... is a traditional Chinese comedic performing arts, and one of China's most popular cultural elements. It is typically in the form of a duo dialogue between two performers... The crosstalk language, rich in puns and allusions, is delivered in a rapid, bantering style... Canadian crosstalk comedian Dashan (Mark Rowswell) says the closest equivalent in English would be Abbott and Costello's "Who's on First?" sketch.
