WHAT IS CROSSTALK?


Xiangsheng, or crosstalk, is arguably the most popular comic performance in China.



Its closest thing from the West could be Abbott and Costello's sketches, widely acclaimed in the United States in the 1940s and early 1950s


Crosstalk first appeared in China during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) as a kind of spin-off of the "imitation show," a popular entertainment form in previous dynasties.



This probably explains the fact that the ancient Chinese term of today's 相声 (xiangsheng, meaning literally mutual voice) was 像生, which has a similar pronunciation but means imitating others' language or behavior.



Performed mainly in Beijing dialect and combining puns, allusions and banter with storytelling, xiangsheng is essentially known for its humorous and satirical nature. It could be a comedic monologue, dialogue, or multiplayer sketch.

There are four key skills in xiangsheng, namely, shuo (talking), xue (imitating), dou (teasing) and chang (singing).


Shuo means speaking or talking. It sometimes includes Chinese rapping.

Actors usually would show off their shuo skill by gushing out in one breath a fusillade of several dozens of names, such as those of Chinese dishes.


sounds fun right😁 ? However these kind of shows are especially recommended for people with high proficiency in Chinese language.
