In 1990, Thomas Yip Shing-hong served as executive director for the comedy My Hero, directed by Leung Ka-yan and starring Stephen Chow. The film enjoyed an impressive gross of over HK$15 million, solidifying Chow’s mo lay tau brand of comedy as a defining sensibility of Hong Kong films in the early 1990s. The same year, Yip got his chance to direct solo, making the ghost comedy An Eternal Combat (1991), which stars Lam Ching-ying and Joey Wong. For his sophomore project, Yip directed the romantic comedy Today’s Hero (1991), starring Maggie Cheung and Kenny Bee. He also made Cheetah on Fire (1992) and My Body, My Soul (1994).

Yip had also been a director and producer at TVB, responsible for a number of popular drama series. He worked mostly in Mainland China in recent years, making television series.
