Chinese Dream - Edinburgh Fringe A comedy show about rice and hip hop, about overcoming oppression and finding your inner child.
About this Event

Grew up in China, educated by the English, and influenced by East Coast hip hop, comedian Alvin Liu shares his ridiculous and unforced perspectives on China, the UK, and the world.

Chinese Dream (WIP) is a comedy show about overcoming oppression and finding your inner child. If you ever felt emotions, experienced cultures, or saw a Chinese person, this show is for you.


"What he has is potent in its imagery, authenticity, perverse logic, and volatility” (British Comedy Guide).

About the performer: With the unique experience of growing up in China, a country of 1.4 billion people, Alvin Liu started stand-up in Asia and moved to the UK in 2022, tickling (spiritually) international audiences with his cheeky thoughts. If comedy was a dish, his silliness is the spice, his sadness is the umami, his anger is the fire, and his jokes are the rice. Get in the wok with Alvin Liu, now.


Warning: this show includes banned topics in authoritarian states such as politics, sex, mentioning of recreational drugs, acknowledging the attractiveness of Brad Pitt, and other independent thoughts.
