Recap:上周日北美崔哥光临华夏大纽约中文学校(Brother Sway visits Huaxia Chinese School Greater New York Last Sunday):

笑口常开,北美崔哥在华夏大纽约中文学校专场演出

上周日2013年5月5日,倍受欢迎的”北美崔哥”来到了位于纽约上州的华夏大纽约中文学校,并献上了精彩的脱口秀表演。北美崔哥本名崔宝印,是一位美式脱口秀笑星。他是地道的北京人,北大英语专业,在美国西雅图大学读过法律,曾经为比尔盖茨,波音总裁,星巴克总裁作过同声翻译,并于2006年为胡锦涛总书记访美担任美方翻译。崔哥的这次光临给我们带来了很多惊喜。来自大纽约地区包括纽约,康州和新泽西州的很多华人慕名参加了这次盛会。崔哥当天以他的招牌式白草帽亮相,显得草根味十足,让人倍感亲切。上午的表演在悦耳的歌声中拉开序幕,在随后的演出里,崔哥生动活泼地介绍了他创办脱口秀的心路里程,以及对当下时局的诸多看法与感受,他的幽默和诙谐征服了观众,赢得了阵阵掌声。中场休息期间,我校拉丁舞老师Mayte Vicens 表演了精彩的独舞-弗拉门戈,舞蹈队表演了由资深老师苏红编导的歌舞-最炫民族风。午休后,崔哥跟学校的各位老师欢聚一堂。崔哥一改以前在舞台上的居高临下,而是很随意的坐在大圆桌上, 并邀请大家靠近团团围坐,跟大家一起聊家常。 崔哥妙语如珠,笑话连篇,令人捧腹。崔哥鼓励大家在生活中要更阳光,更幽默,对别人多一些宽容和理解…崔哥擅长讲一些中英对译的玩笑,这很能赢得海外游子的共鸣和喝彩。他的英文发音纯正而流利,为他赢得了不少老外的笑声。总之,他的表演不拘一格,灵活多变,雅俗共赏。在我们看来,崔哥不仅是演员,更是推进中美文化交流的使者。作为当地最大的中文学校,我校一方面致力于提供最高质量的中文教学,同时也特别注重积极参与当地华人社区的建设与沟通,为丰富华人家庭文化活动而尽力。我们期待崔哥的再一次光临。请点击这里查看照片。请点击查看侨报以及波士顿华人双语网次演出报道。
