I recall watching 相声 on TV when I was very young. Remember 马季 and 赵炎？For a while, I think I didn't watch TV too much - busy studying hoho! But in JC, I came across 相声 in CLDDS again；I think we had that in the variety show in the first year. I don't think I heard it again since then.
Over 20 years!!!
He sent me a few videos and I went on to find a few more, and read about the various 相声演员. I was laughing so hard at a show in Adelaide that the kids rushed over to ask why!
And even though I was expecting all talk, there was music too. And this 探清水河 was the first I heard. Also read the story behind it and heard a few versions of the song!
Attached this version: 看着、听着、看评论都有所感触，把人弄哭了！😭
And there are many more songs! I like #6 :) #3 is funny!
As I read more, I realised that I have seen 郭麒麟 in a drama previously - it was quite a memorable role. In fact, I'm now reading the novel on which the drama was based, and I always imagine his face whenever this character comes up!
But where are the 相声 videos?
Actually, they are mostly quite long so I watched a few minutes here and there every clip. Here's the clip where I laughed out out.
Go to 16:50 - though whole thing is quite funny
This is a short clip - easy to watch and funny too
Hope to watch more!
