Chicago Improv All-Stars Move Their Comedy Operations Offshore To China
Comedy joins the lists of inventions and manufactured goods like gunpowder, noodles, drywall, fireworks, and iPods now made in China. Who says there's nothing to laugh about in the Middle Kingdom?
Beijing, China (November 09, 2011) /ChinaNewswire.com/ — The ChopSchticks Comedy Schow is elevating comedy (and comity) to a new level in Beijing this week with the arrival of the fabulous Chicago Improv All-Stars from the United States.
ChopSchticks Founder Richard Robinson says, "It's awesome to have the Chicago Improv All-Stars back again for their in-demand show. They received such a fantastic response the last time they visited China, and we know these new shows will bring expats the type of satisfied smiles you only witness after eating stinky tofu."
The Chicago Improv All-Stars are among the best improvisational actors and musicians working in the world today. Their troupe has done 1,400 shows around the world to rave reviews, and Beijing is excited to have four of their main players in the lovely Northern Capital that is Beijing. If you have seen "Whose Line Is It Anyway", then you’ll be familiar with the type of on-the-spot, audience suggestion based sketch comedy and musical bits that these guys do. And do so well.
Tickets are now on sale in advance for RMB250 until Wednesday, November 9 (300RMB at the door). The ChopSchticks Comedy Schow will be presenting the Chicago Improv All-Stars for three totally different shows: Friday, November 11, at 8:00PM (Pay online: https://yoopay.cn/pay/09554325); Saturday, November 12, at 7:00PM (Pay online: https://yoopay.cn/pay/33181601); and another show that night on Saturday at 10:00PM (Pay online: https://yoopay.cn/pay/63498119). The world famous Hard Rock Cafe at LiangMaQiao in Beijing hosts the show.
Travelers and comedy-starved expats in Beijing this weekend can not afford to miss this show. South China Morning Post calls the Chicago Improv All-Stars "Hilarious", and The Scotsman wrote, "You cannot fail to have your world rocked by these people. I have one word for it. Go!"
