"The Great LOL of China" is based on Xiangsheng, a form of traditional Chinese comedy. Jesse Appell explains Chinese culture through jokes, tells hilarious stories about working through censorship, and shares what it's like being the funniest Jewish comedian in a country weirdly obsessed with Jews. He also shows how his bilingual comedy is helping China and the West understand each other better.
