Mid Life by Joe Wong @ C Theater – Nanshan
November 3, 2022 @ 8:00 pm
Joe Wong, one of China’s funniest comedians commonly known by his Chinese name as Huang Xi, will be on stage in Shenzhen again at MixC World in Nanshan District on Nov. 2-3.
The two performances are a part of the fourth C Theater Festival and will be presented in Chinese and English on the theme of low self-esteem.
As a biochemist-turned-comedian who shot to fame by giving a 15-minute talk show at the White House Annual Correspondents’ Dinner in the U.S. in 2010, Wong is a person who from a young age has been struggling with low self-esteem. In a bid to move beyond his low self-esteem, he started writing books and learning about talk shows. Starting with telling jokes to friends and taking mics in clubs, he gradually used humor to develop himself and obtain a better life.
“Because of passion we have life, and my passion is humorous expression. It’s humor that let me accept my low self-esteem,” he said.
Audiences at the theater festival will have a chance to listen to his motivational stories as well as his experience and thoughts about mid-life. If you’re also a person who feels the same as Wong used to, don’t hesitate to join in this humorous journey, as you may find the answers for yourself.
