I think it's fine for a comedian to express an amusing exaggeration of his views. At the end of the day it's probably not meant literally (no pays comedians to write scientific fact), and whilst I love China, just like anywhere else in the world, there are good and bad things about China (I think I actually like Chinese people more than China the country).
I'd be so bored if everyone I met liked Chengdu and China.
For some people China is a manic developing paradise, a complete kaleidoscope of all sorts of things. For other people its just a mess that's not got there yet. Its all personal preference, no write or wrong, and he's as free to speak about China as I am to say I think America has developed a disgusting national diet (double the required amount of food, and no vitamins).
It doesn't offend, its opinions (and I like most Americans on a personal level, my objection is their collective culture). But then some of you probably think I'm an annoying Englishman - which is also fine (although we'll not be meeting up for drinks, as our preferences are different).
