!!Creator/StephenChow !!Creator/StephenChow's work provides examples of:



* DarkAndTroubledPast: Stephen Chow had it '''hard''' as a kid growing up in Kowloon's ghettoes, which rarely had running water and barely any electricity or sanitation. He had to learn Jeet Kune Do from television (when he could watch it) because he could not afford the lessons as a boy, and was lucky to even be educated. The resultant bitterness towards life is evident in the extremely cynical and sardonic sense of humor that is prevalent in all his film, wherein almost nothing ''ever'' goes right for honest and hard working people.



* MoodWhiplash: Chow's films are known to veer from slapstick comedy to melodramatic tragedy on a dime.



* SadClown: Chow is best known for his comedic roles and films, but behind the scenes he doesn't seem to be very happy.
