Q BoBo’s Last Stand in Hong Kong: Stand-up Comedy

TVB Indian actor, Q BoBo (喬寶寶), created fervent discussion amongst the Hong Kong public when he announced that he would be immigrating to Scotland after his wife failed to apply for an HKSAR passport. Many fans of the actor wrote protests on Facebook and other social media sites to get the attention of the Hong Kong Immigration Department, but to no avail. As a result, BoBo would have to end his career in the entertainment circle and move to Scotland with his family permanently.

However, BoBo’s situation caught the attention of various media organizers that agreed to stage a stand-up comedy show for BoBo as his last farewell to the Hong Kong public. BoBo considered the show to be a perfect closure to his entertainment career.

BoBo entered the industry six years ago. Although he specializes in comedic performance on variety shows and dramas, this show will be BoBo’s first stab at stand-up comedy. BoBo exclaimed, “To be honest, I am really scared! I’m scared that I’m not funny enough! It would be pretty terrible if a stand-up comedy isn’t funny. On the other hand, I’m worried about the ticket sales. Luckily, I have many friends and colleagues that are supporting me. So far, one third of the pre-sale tickets are sold!”

BoBo’s stand-up comedy concert is titled, Q BoBo’s Stand-Up Comedy – I am a Hong Konger <喬寶寶棟篤笑之我係香港人>. BoBo will talk about his experiences of being an ethnic minority in Hong Kong – talking from his birth, adolescence, first love, life as an employee of the Hong Kong Correctional Services Department, to becoming an entertainer, and the days when his wife was rejected of the HKSAR passport.

“The entire show will be filled with my own experiences. Lee Lai Ha (李麗霞) helped me get Lam Chiu Wing (林超榮) to write the script. Hopefully the results will be good!”

The show will be held in November 2012. Unfortunately, his wife and two sons are unable to leave Scotland, so they will not attend his show.

      I wish Q Bobo’s stand-up comedy to be a success. Watched some tv interviews of Q Bobo recently. He is a good speaker who expresses himself out well.

      He is also a “happy” comedian; his cheerfulness reminds me of Nancy Sit.

      It will be interesting for him to do a “stand up biography” rather than publishing a book.

      This does no favours for the ongoing Mainland China-HKer relations. Did you know his wife’s been living in HK for 22 years? And she still can’t get a HK passport? Meanwhile, mainlanders can hop down and go into the immigration center and say “sup, passport please”.

      bullsh*t of the utmost degree.

        It is so unfair!! I wonder if it is because his wife is not Chinese?? I will really miss seeing him. Hope that he can come back when he gets the chance.

        Or people like Linda Chung, who had no connection with HK prior to her joining TVB and now has obtained residence status.

        Go figure.

          Linda Chung has been staying in HK for 7+ years. That’s enough to qualify for permanent resident status.

          Bobo’s wife is a permanent resident; however, she doesn’t have an HKSAR passport because she wasn’t born in HK.

          Yet so many HK’ers hold foreign passports, claiming one nationality after another. Totally unfair.

          Wasn’t Linda born in Canada?? Oh well, it is not up to us to decide what the government in HK does anyways… Everyone just has to say good bye for now and hope that he comes back when he can.

        Well, I’m not very familiar with HK’s immigration laws, but I don’t think it’s THAT easy for mainlanders to get an HKSAR passport. I would assume that they will only be qualified if they live in HK for a number of years.

        But really, if HK really says no and kick out all those mainlanders, would China really stay cool with that? Don’t think so.

      Life of making money in scotland wont definitely be any easier. The most probable job that he can get is either a security guard or plate washer job. He wont last long there.

      Well, Qbobo. I welcome you back to HK very soon. Good luck.

        He won’t be a security guard or dish washer. He has opened a restaurant selling Indian cuisine in Scotland.

          Thanks for the info but I am sure he will miss the life he had in HK… Hope he can come back whenever he gets the opportunity to.

      Its a shame that he hv to leave the place he love the most x hong kong is his home but when family is not there x how can he stay there for long x his wife was also a hardworking hong kong resident who hv devoted 22 years to hong kong but hong kong immigration really didn’t look into the aspect because she don’t hv a Chinese name x we all Asians r proud of q bobo who hv shown the world that race cannot defeat love n hong long people hv shown so much love to q bobo even though he is not a Chinese origin x may other countries learn from hong kong people x well done q bobo. We r proud of u n may hong kong be yr first home forever x love u always x may u hv a successful career in Scotland too x I hv seen n dine in your restaurant x it’s great food is excellent n service with a smile always like the way u do x
