On an average Saturday night, the funniest thing about Racks in Xintiandi is that they charge 98RMB+ an hour for pool when most other bars let you play for free. This weekend however a former organiser of “Chopschticks” is bringing in some hot comedy talent from NYC to amuse the suckers.
Jesse Joyce and Keith Alberstadt are both based in New York and will be joint headlining tonight and Saturday as part of their Asian tour. What with this tour and the regular comedy nights at O’Malley’s seems to suggest that standup nights in the city are starting to get a real foothold.
Let’s just hope that neither of these guys has any jokes about Tibet.
