Crosstalk is a comedic monologue, dialogue, or multiplayer sketch that uses puns, allusions, and quick, playful banter. An English example of crosstalk is Abbott and Costello’s “Who’s On First?” sketch. Crosstalk is considered the second most popular form of social commentary in China, and the small teahouse performances are being revived after decades of performances in large performing arts centers.
