  1. i would like to translate the above or something along those lines for example 'He began performing comedy on the radio and the stage' , but i don't think my translation is gramatically correct...

    他开始在电台和舞台上的表演喜剧 or 他开始在电台和舞台上表演


    please help
    thanks

    both are grammatically correct
    to me, the latter is better from the context...I'd go with something like this: "做为一个喜剧演员,他开始在电台和舞台上表演"

    They both are gramatically correct.

    i think the first sentence still needs minor correction. '' is actually not necessary.

    I agree. And "喜剧” is repeated, so the latter one is fine.
