Employed by the Shaw Bros., Michael Hui, a former teacher, started in TV shows in 1971. He was quickly joined by his brother Sam, one of the most popular singers in Hong-Kong in the sixties with his band "The Lotus". They both hosted the 'Hui Brother Show', a programme mixing sketches and songs performed by Sam. It was a tremendous success and they did over 50 episodes of the show.
In 1972, Michael developed some interest in the cinematic world. He participated to a few Shaw Bros. productions and worked with the comedy specialist Li Han-hsiang (The Warlord by Li Han-hsiang, 1972, being the most noticeable). But he realised quickly that the rigid and strict system of the Shaw studios didn't let him enough freedom to express himself.

Meanwhile, Sam left the Shaw Bros. Company to work with Golden Harvest, where Bruce Lee, very fond of his songs, taught him some martial art moves. Sam did a few action films for Golden Harvest. Michael joined him at the Golden Harvest and they were immediately successful with the Game Gambler Play (1974), a comedy about HK people number one hobby, i.e. gambling. This was written and directed by Michael. They carried on with The Last Message released in 1975. It's a comedy taking place in a mental hospital, where Michael and Sam always try to perform the best con.

Brother of Sam Hui Koon Kit, Ricky Hui Kun Ying and Stanley Hui Koon Miu.
