Chinese (cantonese) TV Shows

Can anyone recommend a popular Cantonese TV show? Comedy would be preferable :) I have tried looking through youtube but I haven't quite found anything suitable just yet. 


Thank you

How about  try to watch this one ”The Legendary Fok“? It is really classical although very old. I just seared it for you on wikipedia, I hope that would help you to know what is it and if you are interested in it. 

The Legendary Fok is a Hong Kong television series loosely based on the life of the Chinese martial artist Huo Yuanjia (Cantonese: Fok Yuen-gap). It includes a subplot based on the story of Chen Zhen (Cantonese: Chan Zan), a fictional student of Huo Yuanjia and the protagonist of the 1972 film Fist of Fury. The series was first broadcast in 1981 on RTV (now ATV) in Hong Kong.

Thanks Alexandra and Rae, RHTK is great, so much to view on there. 

Most of what has been posted on this thread I was able to find on youtube so I have a massive playlist on my 'favourites'. I've also purchased classics such as 'infernal affairs' and 'IP man' which I will try to watch repeatedly (firstly with subtitles and then without). 

I also have a couple of Stephen Chow films including Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle which I have found hilarious and very strange haha :D

U may try TV programmes from RTHK (http://rthk.hk/index_eng.htm#3), usually they come with Chinese subtitles.

Headliner (a sarcastic TV show abt current affairs/politics which shows tons of authentic Cantopop tunes) - http://programme.rthk.hk/rthk/tv/programme.php?name=tv/headliner&p=857

TV Most (the most popular magazine for 20s-30s, sometimes nonsense but usually ironic) - http://www.tvmost.com.hk/ or FB https://www.facebook.com/100most

Hope these help!
