Details of Jiang Kun and the Ticket Luck value
After achieving the height of success in his native land, the Chinese comic genius Jiang Kun brings his brand of humor to the audiences in the United States and Canada this time around. Some of Kun's famous works include So Camera, I am a Little Dizzy, Learning to Sing and Best Network. Kun is also a regular performer at the New Year's Gala by CCTV which happens to be a highly viewed annual event in the world. Jiang Kun's brand of humor has earned him the following of many fans across the globe. This time around as he heads to perform in the United States and Canada, catch him live with Jiang Kun tickets.
Jiang Kun emerged in the Chinese comedy scene back in 1978 when comedians didn't dare to talk about day-to-day conditions or make jokes about it. At the time, China was still recovering from the Cultural Revolution. Around the time when Gang of Four was also disbanded, Jiang Kun took a stand and went against all odds to start a profession in comedy.
Jiang Kun was just twenty years of age when he stepped into the comedy scene. Kun proved his revolutionary stand by often performing a skit that featured a proprietor of a camera store and a customer going on about negotiating the correct price of the camera. In English, that skit is known as Taking Pictures and it represents a real life experience that Kun had. Even though Kun considered it a sad story, the skit went on to help Kun sky rocket his fame as a comedian. With this skit as his stepping stone, Jiang Kun has now become one of the most popular comedians in China, with his fan following ranging in thousands. Kun's skits and routines feature verbal elusions and dodging that seemed to have a glimpse of Who's On First? by Abbott & Costello. Kun chose a brand of comedy that is traditionally known as the Xiangsheng in Chinese while in English it is a method of cross talking.
Presently Jiang Kun's fan following is spread all across the mandarin and Chinese communities in the world. He also performed at Just for Laughs festival in Toronto, where he performed two shows in Mandarin. The event was organized by Jiang Kun himself and also featured other Xiangsheng performers such as Shi Shengjie, Dai Zhicheng, as well as other magicians, puppeteers and mimes. The event offered a chance to witness one of the Chinese comic legends as well as other acts live on stage to the Mandarin speaking community in Toronto. For Jiang Kun, it also proved to be a new experience as he got a chance to perform in front of a huge Mandarin community outside China.
Jiang Kun's comedy doesn't only cater to the older audience members; many of his fans belong to the young Chinese community. In order to connect with a much larger chunk of audience, now Kun also employs internet lingo and social media terms. At times, Jiang Kun is also called the Bill Cosby of the Chinese world. Only difference that these two have is that Kun performs a complex form of Crosstalk, which originated back in Qing Dynasty. To keep Xiangsheng fun and modern, Jiang Kun adds contemporary elements to it to keep it fresh and funny at the same time.
When it comes to doing comic routines in China, Jiang Kun still has to keep away from the no-go zones in that part of the world. Talking about sex and political issues is still considered offensive in China, which is why Xiangsheng is only language humor without any elements of politics in it. Jiang Kun also addresses social issues in his routines, without being too direct. He makes social commentary regarding corruption and other social problems. Jiang Kun's comedy attracts a large number of Chinese and Mandarin community members, and this time as he comes to your city, catch him live with Jiang Kun tickets.
