There’s no straight line in building a stand-up comedy career. And this fact is highlighted in my interview with Korean Chinese comedian, now an American citizen, Joe Wong.
In this School of Hard Knock Knocks podcast interview, you’ll learn how Joe moved from Jilin Province in China, became a chemical engineer, and then performed at the White House. He’s performed stand-up on David Letterman’s The Late Show, Ellen DeGeneres show ‘Ellen’, and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert – just to name a few. He’s now a China-based TV host, uncovering myths and making jokes and one of China’s most successful stand-up comedy exports.
This interview was conducted in a Beijing coffee shop, so, please ignore the background noise. And now, here he is, Joe Wong.
