Colin Goh is a Singaporean film maker, satirist and cartoonist.
He was a former practicing
attorney who has turned to full-time writing and
Goh first rose to prominence with his comic
, 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 talkingcock.com
, 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.
Together with his wife, Joyceln Woo Yen Yen, they made their first
full-feature film, Talking
. They won the Montblanc award for best new screenwriters
at the 54th San Sebastian
International Film Festival
for their second film Singapore Dreaming
