Biography

Feng graduated from Central China Normal University with a master's degree in Chinese Literature. In 1973, he performed a famous xiangsheng named Zunshi ai tudi (尊师爱徒弟) in Tianjin. Then he started to learn the arts of xiangsheng from the xiangsheng master Ma Ji. He also worked in a textiles machine factory. Feng was considered more talented than many other students of Ma Ji, and eventually emerged as a new star, performing progressively to bigger venues. Niu Qun (牛群) and Liu Wei (刘伟) were his partners when performing xiangsheng.

Feng appeared in the first CCTV New Year's Gala in 1986; he has appeared at almost every Chunwan performance for the next thirty years, variably in skits and xiangsheng. Feng is usually one of the first acts of the show; it is said he appears earlier in the program so that he can drive home to Tianjin to spend midnight on new year with his mother.

In 1988, he won the championship at the competition of xiangsheng performances in Dalian held by China Central Television.

Feng is the great grandson of Feng Guozhang, once the President of the Republic of China during the chaotic Warlord era. Feng himself is a leadership figure in The Revolutionary Committee of the Chinese Kuomintang, one of the eight legally recognized political parties in China, as well as a member of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference. He is often accosted by reporters during the annual Lianghui meetings in Beijing due to his celebrity status.
