Deyunshe Cross Talk Show

Thursday 12th September 2024 | The Trusts Arena

Presented by: JP Media

Deyunshe, featuring Guo Degang and Yu Qian, has brought another exciting show to Auckland once again. In celebration of the first “All Star Comedy Gala” outside of China, they have come together with Yue Yunpeng and Guo Qilin, alongside their duo partners, and are accompanied by the CrossTalk Masters for a once-in-a-lifetime experience at The Trusts Arena this Spring.

For many of us, Master Guo is a symbolic icon of traditional CrossTalk. His enhanced knowledge of CrossTalk, together with his unparalleled on-stage performance, marks excellence in many ways. For those who have already experienced his shows personally, there is no doubt that this will be another great night that will be worthwhile to enjoy again and again.

When it comes to the Chinese comedic performance style known as xiangsheng, De Yun She are in a league of their own. Formed over 20 years by actor, comedian, and impresario Guo Degang, the group have been instrumental in the wider revival and increasingly international popularity of xiangsheng. Thanks to recent tours that have brought De Yun She to four different continents, Degang has helped create a new worldwide audience for a traditional style long enjoyed by audiences in China.

A phrase that translates literally as “face and voice,” xiangsheng is a cultural form whose roots may extend back to the Ming Dynasty. Its most typical mode consists of two performers onstage exchanging a rapid-fire stream of puns, allusions, references, imitations, and — of course — joke-filled banter. Originally performed in dialect by street performers, these high-speed displays of wit and dexterity climbed up from their lowly origins to become a hugely popular and often satirical style of entertainment that’s widely enjoyed both in live venues and on Chinese television.
