TAIPEI, Taiwan — Friends and family bid farewell Tuesday to entertainer Hsieh Hsin-Ta (謝新達), better
known as Chu Ke-liang (豬哥亮), who brought laughter to many with his coarse humor and slapstick comedy during his lifetime.
Around 2,000 fans, friends and entertainers, including Chang Fei (張菲) and actress Amber Kuo (郭采潔), were on hand to pay tribute to the entertainer at his funeral held in Banqiao in New Taipei on Tuesday morning that cost an estimated NT$5 million.
Chu, a show host presenter, singer and actor, died on May 15 of liver failure induced by cancer. He was 70.
His eldest son Hsieh Shun-fu (謝順福) said the funeral was meant to be a festive occasion because his father “wanted everyone to be happy.” [FULL STORY]
