Michael Hui Koon Man two nights ago performed a charity stand up comedy show. Friends Nadia Chan Chung Ling, Vivien Leung Siu Bing and others attended. During the opening, Michael's grandsons presented flowers. As soon as he opened his mouth he talked about many political figures, including Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam Kuen, Henry Tang Ying Nin, Dr. York Chow Yuat Ngok and others. The crowd roared in laughter and applause.
Speaking of how the sexes get along, Michael felt that men should know how to act. He should play a good man in front of his girlfriend or wife. He joked that thus past Hong Kong Film Award Best Actors have never divorced like Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Lau Ching Wan. When viewers reminded him that Chow Yun Fat had a divorce with Candy Yu On On, he said, "Before the divorce he was box office poison, after winning the Best Actor award he didn't have another divorce! Right?" Speaking of Nicholas Tse Ting Fung, Michael could not help but lament, "The newspaper said they are reuniting, the divorce alone went on for two years. Why? Because Ting Fung isn't just a Best Actor, next to him is a Best Actress. I also wish they would be able to get back together like the way it was!" Although Michael was telling joke after joke, as soon as he mentioned his late brother Ricky Hui Koon Ying he choked up. "Speaking of absurdity on the plane, sigh, I am very heartbroken. I am reminding of my brother Ah Ying. He was the less willing to take a plane, every time he did he had to take a sedative!"
Michael admitted that he has not performed in a long time. He was so excited that his voice was a little hoarse. Originally he planned to invite his brother Hui Koon Ying to be his guest, but unfortunately it did not pan out. He said, "Originally I had some stories about him, but I don't dare to tell them. I am very afraid that even I wouldn't be able to laugh. Tonight's audience response was great, too bad my brother couldn't attend." He admitted that even Sam Hui Koon Kit had the same feeling and was not used to Hui Koon Ying's passing, so he would agree to perform at the Hong Kong Coliseum. With the busy performance schedule in recent years, Michael said that he would properly rest or perhaps consider film planning.
