This just in: We've just learned Letterman and Ellen-featured comedian Joe Wong will be doing an intimate stand-up show for an audience of just 60 tomorrow night on the terrace bar at The Hutong in a ChopSchticks Comedy Club-produced show.

Chinese-American Wong was born in the northern province of Jilin but got his comedy start in the US, where he moved after getting a degree at Beijing's prestigious Chinese Academy of Sciences (and who knew they even taught comedy?). Wong rose to comedy stardom via the American standup circuit as well via his multiple appearances on popular talk shows by David Letterman and Ellen Degeneres.

Tickets for this small-scale show will sell out, so advanced purchase is strongly recommended via Yoopay (which accepts foreign and domestic credit cards, PayPal and AliPay).

Tickets are RMB 200 in advance as long as they last. In the mean time we've grabbed a pair of complimentary tickets for you readers ... but you gotta work for it. The person who emails us their funniest joke to before 4pm today (we'll post the winners in the comments after 4) gets the pair.

Doors to Saturday night's show open at 7.30pm @ The Hutong and the show runs through 9.30pm.
