岳云鹏 (Yuè Yúnpéng) is one of the most famous crosstalk comedians in China. Crosstalk is a popular genre of entertainment, similar to stand-up comedy, usually performed by two people speed-talking, satirizing, singing, word-juggling, and doing voices and dialects.
Yuè Yúnpéng is one of China’s best comedians, particularly loved for his face-pulling skills – which last year put him in a movie with Mr. Bean himself!
Born in a poor village in Hénán Province, Yuè Yúnpéng left school at 14 because he couldn’t afford the tuition fee. He worked odd jobs until one day, while waiting tables in Bĕijīng, he was miraculously discovered by a famous crosstalk star who liked his style.
The two have since become an all-star master-apprentice crosstalk duo, making everyone cry with laughter.
More recently, Yuè Yúnpéng’s little daughter has been stealing his headlines, with the whole nation going “aww!”
