Xiangsheng has remained popular for over a century because it makes people laugh!
Listening to Xiangsheng relieves people from their worries and reminds them to take a break to gather the strength needed to move forward. Chen Ching-shen, a Taiwan Xiangsheng master teacher, and Huang Yi-hao, the first Xiangsheng actor who reached stardom in the talk show industry, teach the audience the amusing history of Xiangsheng, explain the current situations of Taiwan Xiangsheng, demonstrate the intimate relationship between Xiangsheng and contemporary comedy, change the way young people view traditional performing arts, and deliver a hilarious performance. Concurrently, an introduction to the Amazing 30 of TQT held at the 2023 TSMC Hsinchu Arts Festival on June 3 will be introduced.

His works include Azhai Wants to Leave the Group, Is the Princess Sick, and Justice Man. In 2018, Huang became immensely popular online because of his talk show Cute Gesture, which has generated 20 million views on Sina Weibo.
