(Sina entertainment review) Charlie Cao is a Hong Kong comedian who impresses the audience most by playing the role of an abominable beast in clothes and a snob who is often teased. Charlie Cao's acting skills are very poor. He plays the role of a man who is impatient and looks like a monkey. He usually grins obscene. When he does it, he grins his teeth, bares his nose and glares at his eyes. (online review of Jinyang)
