Colin Goh

Colin Goh

Colin Goh is a Singaporean film maker, satirist and cartoonist. He was a former practicing attorney who has turned to full-time writing and illustration.

Goh first rose to prominence with his comic strip, The Concrete Jungle, which appeared on a regular basis in the Singapore tabloid, The New Paper.

In 1996, his play, The Body Politic, was performed at the 1996 Singapore Arts Festival. The play was also performed at the Royal Court Theatre in London.

He went on to set up, a website which poked fun at the various idiosyncratic aspects of what it meant to be a Singaporean. The site's copious use of Singlish and occasional digs at the bureaucracies made it a popular one.[1]

Together with his wife, Joyceln Woo Yen Yen, they made their first full-feature film, Talking Cock (2002).[2] They won the Montblanc award for best new screenwriters at the 54th San Sebastian International Film Festival for their second film Singapore Dreaming.
