Humorous Adaptation
A few brave souls have ventured to export Western humor on to Chinese stages in Shanghai

Home away from home is difficult. To combat this, expats have simply transferred some favored elements of their home countries’ entertainment scenes to China. (Now, everyone in metropolitan China knows where boisterous laowais congregate at night.) Occasionally, the opportunity arises for a group of likeminded entertainers to build upon their interests and develop it into a form of income. Comedy is no exception.
