The Great LOL of China, made in conjunction with Asia Society's China Learning Initiatives, is a bilingual video series starring Beijing-based American comedian Jesse Appell. The bi-weekly episodes aim to highlight unique aspects of Chinese culture and society through comedy.

In this week's episode, Jesse explores the complex Sino-American relationship, and how the two countries are like roommates that may not always like each other, but are stuck together nonetheless.
