Olga Syahputra (born Yoga Syahputra; 8 February 1983 – 27 March 2015) was an Indonesian actor, comedian, singer, and television presenter. He often portrayed transvestites to comedic effect.
Syahputra was seen in numerous Indonesian TV programs, especially during Ramadhan festival every year. As a youth, he was just a fan who often asked for autographs and photographs of his idols. He was fortunate to be offered a role in the movie Lenong Bocah. His role required him to take advanced training in Padang-Java [clarification needed] at the Sanggar Ananda owned by Aditya Gumay. Without money, Olga sold a refrigerator to pay for classes. A friend, Bertrand Antolin, later purchased a new refrigerator for him.
Perseverance finally paid off when he began to get roles in the soap operas, including Kawin Gantung and Si Yoyo. He then became a presenter for Ngidam on SCTV paired with Jeremy Thomas. Olga appeared in Jangan Cium Gue, followed by Extravaganza ABG in 2005. By this time, Olga was becoming well known in Indonesia. His breakout year was 2007 when he appeared with Indra Bekti and Indy Barends at the Ceriwis awards show on Trans TV.
In 2008, Olga became a TV presenter of music events on Dahsyat, a morning shown on RCTI. His co-presenter since March 2011 has been Jessica Iskandar. Olga won the award for Favorite presenter Music/Variety Show and Favorite Comedian in Panasonic Awards 2009 and Panasonic Awards 2010 published in RCTI, MNCTV, and Global TV. Aside from being a presenter, he also starred in such movies as Skandal Cinta Babi Ngepet and Mau Lagi (released as Cintaku Selamanya').
Syahputra was reprimanded by the Indonesian Broadcasting Commission (KPI) for an incident which occurred while hosting Strikes (RCTI) on 1 May 2009. After, Olga and Five Minutes met and apologies were tendered over the offending jokes. Olga's mimicking-transvestite style caused controversy and was reviewed by the Indonesian Broadcasting Commission.
Syahputra's joke on the show Decade on Trans TV was also reported to the KPI. Syahputra, who played a ghost, made a remark about minivan drivers when asked about the cause of his death, but the dialogue was not in the script. This resulted in Syahputra being reported to the Indonesian Broadcasting Commission by various parties.
