Gongs, Songs, & Hong Kong Thongs

Part of China Changing Festival

Laugh along in this funny, fast-paced one-man show, created and performed by Chris Chan. A brand new 45-minute musical comedy inspired by American stand-up and Chinese cross-talk, Gongs, Songs & Hong Kong Thongs is packed with comic banter and wicked songs about the weird and wonderful quirks, attitudes and faux pas found in modern day Britain and China, and with the help of digital technology – incorporates a man performing a duet with himself.

With tongue firmly in cheek, hear a man wax on (and wax off) lyrically about Asian stereotyping in a show that’s part-culture guide, part biography, part parody.

Written and performed by Chris Chan, 2016 UK Songwriting Contest semi-finalist

Presented by Chinese Arts Space as part of Project New Sun: Sinosynthesis (Part 2)

The creation of this work has been supported by Southbank Centre
