Although he was an actor for many years but his fame increased recently after he became a common denominator in most of the new comedy movies and with most of the comedians in Egypt, known as the "Joker of the Egyptian cinema."Born in El Qal’a neiborhood his father is a contractor, this long life was not without trouble and difficult situations and surprises that changed the course of his life, which began in the neighborhood of El Helmeya El Gedeeda. He lost his mother when he was six years of age after she died at an early age, this event caused him an aura of deep sadness. In elementary school, specifically in Radwaniyah school he fell in love of acting, which he expressed through the school's theater, and to be mentioned that he played the role of "Antonio" at a school party and based on this role he got the the Excellence cup at Khedeiweya School, and has won numerous medals of appreciation from the Ministry of Education, while he got the high school certificate in 1956
Meanwhile, the actor Hussein Riyad participated in one of the evaluation committees for acting competitions in schools, after drawing attention to his level of performance, he was sure that he will not work in anything other than acting.At the beginning of the sixties he found himself as a professional actor who gets paid for something he loves the most, and became a member of the military theater group that belonged to the army, and that time he did not notice that he would be representative of a certain segment of people who are only soldiers and officers, and sometimes their families, where he provided performances on the stage of the Allied officers and their families in the month of Ramadan, and what caused him pain in that period, was that he couldn’t reach out to the public on a large scale, which caused a crisis for him shared by the late creative actor Hassan Abdin, until a decision was made to dissolve the military theater following the defeat of the fifth of June in 1967, and then the two of them felt relieved, and each one of them began the journey of searching for an opportunity to show their talent. Hassan Hosni said about that point:" Without solving the military theater Hassan Abdeen and I would have been outside the circle of light, which we dreamed of, at that time I was transferred to the El Hakim theater which witnessed my first steps, I performed many plays as ” Orabi” with director Nabil El-Alfi and “El Markeb Elly Twady” with the director Nour El Demerdash, and other plays that have resonated with the theater audience. "In addition to these plays, Hassan Hosni and director Samir El Asfori presented the play ”Kalam Fareg” that continued to display for 6 months, a record to the standards of that period, and his success in this play led him to move to the National Theatre and Modern Theatre, where he achieved another success in his professional life, that qualified him to work in the private sector theaters in the early seventies, when he joined Taheya Karyouka’s group, where he worked for 9 years, during which he presented the most awsome plays in his own words, in the forefront ‘ Robabikia” and “Saheb El emarah”.In the end of the seventies Hassan Hosni took part in the series “Abna’ei El A’ezaa Shokran” known as “Baba abdo”with the late actor Abdel Meneim Madbouly , through embodying a corrupt employee who takes bribes, a role that made him well known to the audience , despite the size of the evil involved in it.In the early eighties studios of Dubai and Ajman, opened their doors to theEgyptian Stars , among them was Hassan Hosni, who filmed a lot of films and series even he does not remember their quantity, and were displayed in the Gulf countries heavily. And his friends called him "the flying actor" because of moving between Ajman and Dubai studios frequently to participate in many films and series.The temptation of money of these films and series was more than Hassan Hosni’s ability to refuse to work in them, which has affected his relationship with the theater, which he was apart from it for about eight years, which Hassan Hosni justify by saying: "despite my passion for theater but it was not the cause of my fame, people did not know the presence of an actor called Hassan Hosni, but after my participation in the series “Abna’ei El A’ezaa Shokran”,i entered the houses of the Egyptians and achieved fame that i dreamed of , which drew my attention to the importance of television and its impact on helping the actor to spread. "Despite that Hassan Hosny was away from the theatre all those years, but he returned to it in the mid-eighties when he presented with the theater actress Suhair El Bably and with lifelong friend the actor Hassan Abdeen the play “Alal Raseif”, which had supported his stardom to the Egyptian audience and Arab as well.Hassan Hosni’s Relationship with cinema started with a small role in the film “El Karnak” with director Ali Badrakhan in 1975, but his role in the film”Sawwak El Otobeis” directed by Atef “El Tayyeb” in 1982 was a milestone in his life and career, where he drew the attention to him as an actor capable of performing Specifically the roles of evil differently.Afterwards he presented with the El Tayyeb a number of films, including the “Elbarei, El Badroumt, El Horoub, also worked with a number of other directors, including Mohammad Khan in the film “Zawget Ragol Mohem”, and Radwan El Kashef” in the movie “Sarek El Farah” , where he played the role of "Rokba" the trainer of monkeys, which made him win 5 awards. A role that Hassan Hosni says about: "I enjoyed the performance of this role, where I embodied through the monkey trainer who loves a young girl dreams of being a dancer, so he plays for her on the tambourine , and the moment he has her he dies, it was a difficult and complex role , but enjoyable for me as an actor because of the difficulty of it. "The year 1993 was a special year in the career of Hassan Hosny, at the time he flew to Syria and Lebanon to a show the play”Goas We Loaz”, which he was starring in, the Committee on Arbitration novelist Film Festival in Cairo headed by Lutfi Kholi announces him as the winner of the best actor award, ahead of Farouk El Fishawi and Mahmoud Hemeidah, who were his competitors on the award that year. At that time the usual was giving the awards for the stars who carry the title of "superstar".In the same year Hassan Hosni also won the best actor award at the Alexandria International Film Festival for the film “FaresEl Madina”, which drew the audience and critics to Hassan Hosni’s talent, who announced that he started acting in cinema “old” as the Egyptians say, the critic Iris Nazmi said about him: "He is an actor who succeeded in imposing him self through his talent, and proved that it is not by stardom alone the actor lives, the stardom glory fades away while the actor remains by his value. "Since the mid-nineties a new phase began in the life of Hassan Hosni the most special about it was participating in the young actors movies, which began in that period, to the extent that some said that it is like giving the ISO to those movies that involves his presence, starting from Mohammed Heneidy’s movies and ending with Hamada Helal’s movies , which drove the writer Hosn Shah to criticize him by saying: "Hassan Hosni has great talent, but he wastes it in movies that don’t rise to the level of commercial movies. Critic Mustafa Darwish disagreed with This opinion, he believes that Hassan Hosni an extraordinary ability to draw a quiet smile on the lips, stressing that his presence with the young comedian actors is big gain for them, and give them the ability to learn indirectly without sensitivity, for he does not put himself in competition with them, but as a plus for them and their work.Comedy has special place in the life of Hassan Hosni, he says: "I like light comedy based on the situation, and this is one of the reasons for participating with those young actors, but the other reason is my desire to provide a good living, some may blame me for participate in some low level movies, but I want to secure myself against the vicissitudes of days."The movies of the actor Hassan Hosni “Hazzemni Ya,Raafat El Haggan,Bawwabet El Halawani,El Moghtasiboun,El Mowaten Masri,El Katelah,El Sayyed Kaaf,Saarek El Farah,Nasser 56,Lamada ,are considered of the milestones in his career. It Hassan Hosni remains the “sweeper of cinema, video and theater," although the latter had dropped from the list of his interests due to his involvement in the cinema, the last play he presented is “Lamma Baba Yenam”, which stopped because of the death of the late Alaa Wali El-Din.the late writer Mousa Sabri Called him the "sweeper" because he has the ability to excel himself in any role assigned to him, even convince you that he is the owner of the character he is presenting, and the "sweeper" is a name that the Egyptians desinated, which stands for the train that carries passengers from all stations. Khairi Bishara, gave him the title of the "Saw" in reference to the vast amount of movies and series he does, to the extent that he had four series that where displayed in the month of Ramadan last year.He is the actor Hassan Hosni, who became the star in most of the young actors comedy movies in the last ten years, a phenomenon that he justified by saying: "in 1982 the actor Emad Hamdi gave me the opportunity to appear with him in the movie “Sawwak El Otobees” in an influential role in the movie which was almost the primary mover of events, at the time that the scenes of this great actor did not exceed the fingers of the hand, why wouldn’t I do what the great masters of acting did.
