Abstract: Review of "Who Is the Real Tycoon?" and short bio of director Kevin Chu (Chu Yen-ping/Zhu Yanping). A hilarious and straightforward slapstick comedy packed with numerous physical routines and outrageous cat-and-mouse set-ups, "Who Is the Real Tycoon?" features Taiwan's legendary comedian Hsu Pu-liao (Xu Buliao) in his prime playing two brothers of opposite social classes. The lowbrow film serves as a distinctive manifestation of the Chu and Hsu phenomenon that swept the Taiwanese audience off their feet laughing in the early 1980s.
