Does anyone know what cross-talking is ?

I think it is the same as cross-dressing, but instead of doing it you just talk about it, but I could be wrong.

It's a form of stand-up comedy also known in China as xiangsheng.

Thank you my long suffering friend. ;)

It would seem that the performers are seen to be "as low" as prostitutes, listed in the nine most degrading professions. :D

Cross-talking used to be very popular on stage and in Hollywood between the wars - Abbott and Costello, the Three Stooges, the Crazy Gang, Groucho and Chico Mark....If you want to see some really good examples of it watch Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell in His Girl Friday.
