Starting to think of what aspects of Asian media interest me that I would love to find out more about and fully immerse myself in, I came to the conclusion that comedies were it for me.
My love for comedies cannot be triumphed by anything else, and I absolutely believe that watching and absorbing comedy material from other countries is a great way to understand a culture. It involves both hearing the languages being spoken but also the many ways you can make someone laugh. Australians tend to have one way of doing comedy, perhaps using our own stereotypes, enhancing accents and so on. Americans too have their own style, there own stereotypes and different taboos. Like how in Australia swearing is no issue at all, you can freely say the c word and no one would take offence. But in America that word would probably get you beaten up.
