Pretty big weekend for comedy in Shanghai. Two international headlining acts are performing, plus a couple improv shows. Originally, Joe Machi was supposed to perform at The Pearl
theater, but his visa situation didn't work out. And so it goes... In response, The Pearl teamed up with the Shanghai Comedy Club
, and is hosting in Thai Rivera, an L.A. comedy club regular who's been featured on Comedy Central. His shtick: edgy material on race and homosexuality
. OooOOooO, controversial! Should be good. Starts at 9pm on Friday and Saturday
. Tickets are 180rmb in advance or 220rmb at the door.
More comedy shows after the jump...
