Dashan Live Performance at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival

“大山是外国人,但不是外人”——中国观众对大山的电视形象再熟悉不过。近两年这位来自加拿大的“国际幽人”将中国的单口相声和西方的stand- up comedy相结合,结果就是他的纯中文单口喜剧专场《大山侃大山》。在这里大山讲的都是台下鲜为人知的故事,分享近30年在中西文化之间的喜剧人生,让 观众耳目一新。原来“现场版”的大山比电视上的更精彩,更可乐!

Dashan is a household name in China, the only non-Chinese performer to have appeared 4 times on the CCTV Spring Festival Gala — the world’s most-watched TV program with an annual audience of over 800 million. He’s now helping to bring stand-up to China with this ground-breaking show, sharing hilarious behind-the-scene stories of his 30 years between East & West.
