James Donaldson: Live at the Laoshe Teahouse in Beijing, China!



James Donaldson and Raymond cracking ’em up at the Laoshe Teahouse in Beijing, China.  

Laughter is universal!!!


It’s not quite ShowTime at The Apollo, but I had a great time being introduced to the great Chinese crowd at the world famous, Laoshe Teahouse in Beijing.

The laughs were so real and everyone had a great time!

Here’s a little insight that I found out to prepare me for the jokes:

– The Chinese are very shy and modest about “baby-making and where babies come from”, so when you call someone an “action taker”…. it means “they’ve been getting down in the bedroom”

– The comment about me being a “Colored Great Wall” isn’t nearly as sensituve (to me or to them) as that might be taken here in the States.  Matter of fact, during my Sonics days I was part of the Winnebago Wall along with Jack Sikma and Lonnie Shelton… so, not much difference there!

– Also, I kept hearing what I thought was the “N – word” everywhere I went, but the people where actually saying “nega”, meaning “look here, or listen up”, when they’re having a conversation. (smile!)
