Back in the 1980s he went through the TVB acting school – and afterwards was in a number of variety shows and dramas on TV. In 1988 he had a good movie role – as a cop in Tiger Cage. A year later, he did a good job of portraying a menacing and corrupt cop in My Heart is that Eternal Rose. He was excellent is both those crime dramas – bringing a visceral nastiness to his character in the 1989 film directed by “new wave” director, Patrick Tam. In 1990 he won a HKFA award for Best Supporting Actor for a terrific performance in A Moment of Romance as Andy Lau’s down on his luck friend.

He appeared in a number of other triad type films during this period – before getting a big break in 1990. In that year he was teamed up with a young actor who had been stuck primarily in dramas up until this time. This was the comedian’s first real go at a comedy – and it was a huge success – and from then on Stephen Chow and Ng Man-tat would team up often to make a series of classic films. In the early 90s he was extremely popular – acting not only with Chow but in many other films as well.

In 1992 he was in 16 films and had to turn down 10 others. Though his workload has slowed down considerably, he is still working today.
