This time around, Chinese comedians were invited to debut at the "Just For Laughs" festival.
Chinese artists have adapted their repertoire for an foreign audience with various backgrounds.
Jiang Kun, Chinese comedian, said, "We've rearranged our programs in the context of an international background. We try to avoid the dialogues in colloquial Chinese and stay away from Chinese dialects, slang and those words popular in the bygone days."
Apart from Chinese comedies and non-verbal slapstick, the festival also features magic shows, mime performances, shadow plays. Kazak ballads with stunning costumes, music and dance round out the list.
So, "Pack up your troubles. C'mon get happy." It's time to laugh!
