I really enjoyed Dayo Wong’s Stand Up Comedy shows (黃子華棟篤笑) even though I may not fully understand the cultural references.
I compiled a playlist here so I don’t have to keep looking for them.
I first saw Dayo Wong him in a TVB drama. It is about a detective that isn’t quite the conventional police officer. A most entertaining and enjoyable drama. Unfortunately, Singapore TV station didn’t bring in many other TV drama shows featuring him after that.
I didn’t know he has been doing stand up comedy since 1990. It is good that I found out recently and that a lot of his shows can be found on Youtube.
His shows are not belly-aching funny but they contain a lot of witty and insightful observations on the daily lives of the Hong Kong people and of humanity in general.
I am glad that I understand Cantonese, thanks to my parents for renting all those 80s Hong Kong drama video-tapes. LOL!
