Mr. Cao Yunjin's tour can be in full swing at the moment, among the many reasons, I personally think that there is a supporting condition that cannot be ignored, that is, Deyun Club has provided him with a lot of material openly and secretly, willingly or reluctantly.
From the perspective of works, every work performed by Mr. Cao Yunjin was taught by Guo Degang during his Deyun Club period. Although these works are all left by the old gentlemen, Guo Degang has no copyright, but if it were not for Guo Degang's professor back then, Cao Yunjin would probably not become a cross talk actor, let alone become popular today.
And from the perspective of stage style, these works of Mr. Cao Yunjin have many traces of Guo Degang. In other words, although the work was not written by Guo Degang, the style is Lao Guo's.
Of course, for Mr. Cao Yunjin, this matter is not important. The important thing is that the applause and laughter he won in other links other than the live works can be said to be mostly from Deyun Club.
For example, the famous "Piercing a Knife". I don't know how many people have been stabbed in history, but at least Guo Degang left the deepest impression on the stage of quyi.
Now, Mr. Cao Yunjin presents this bridge completely, on the one hand, it reflects the artistic inheritance of the master and apprentice, and on the other hand, it also reflects the moving feelings of Mr. Cao Yunjin who never forgets the teacher's kindness.
Another example is "Kicking the Coat", which shocked Northeast China, North China and Southeast Asia. Of course, kicking the coat was not invented by Guo Degang, it is said that someone kicked the coat on the stage of Peking Opera a hundred years ago.
But in terms of influence, it is undoubtedly a niche, and what everyone is familiar with is Guo Degang's classics.
In addition, there are also well-known in South America, Eastern Europe, and Israel's Palestinian region, such as You Have to Be Magnanimous, You Know What I've Experienced, Going It Alone, The Song of the Five Rings, Making a Fortune, etc., which are roughly the same.
Of course, I have to mention "Exploring the Qingshui River" here.
If there is anything most commendable about Mr. Cao Yunjin's tour in the past six months, I think it is that he sang and sang to explore the Qingshui River.
The process of the matter is like this: before Mr. Cao Yunjin became popular, Tanqingshui River was criticized by many people as a kiln song (Mr. Cao Yunjin himself had said similar things before), but after Mr. Cao Yunjin sang this song, those people closed their mouths in unison.
In other words, exploring the Qingshui River is still exploring the Qingshui River, because of Mr. Cao Yunjin's singing, it has changed its nature. One of the results of this incident is that no one criticizes Guo Degang and Zhang Yunlei for singing about the vulgarity of Qingshui River, and I think this is the biggest feedback from Mr. Cao Yunjin to Guo Degang.
So the title of my article, why do you say that Guo Degang is sorry for Cao Yunjin in 2023?
There is only one reason, that is, whether it is a knife or a coat, whether it is exploring the Qingshui River or the song of the Five Rings, the Deyun materials that Mr. Cao Yunjin can use are almost exhausted, and there may be nothing new if the performance continues.
At this time, there is an urgent need for Deyun Club Guo Degang, Yue Yunpeng, Zhang Yunlei and so on to dedicate new bridges, only in this way, Cao Yunjin can have new materials whether it is from imitation or traffic.
But for some reason, after Mr. Cao Yunjin became popular, the similar "Deyun Terrier" Deyun Club suddenly stopped updating.
What I want to ask Guo Degang here is: If you don't have a new stalk, how will Mr. Cao Yunjin's tour be carried out in the future?
From this point of view, Guo Degang is really sorry for Cao Yunjin in 2023.
