Henry Thia (Chinese: 程旭辉; pinyin: Chéng Xùhuī; Wade–Giles: Ch'eng2 Hsu4 Hui1, born 25 February 1952) is a Singaporean former actor and comedian.

Career[edit]

Thia was a member of the main cast of Comedy Nite throughout its run.[1] Although he had many roles in various sketches, his most memorable role is probably Lion King in the sketch series Liang Ximei.[2] He made a transition to English television in 2004, where he played the recurring role of Georgie Gan in Police & Thief.[3]

Thia is also known to the public for his strikingly similar looks to Singaporean politician Khaw Boon Wan, a fact he often acknowledges by jokingly referring to Khaw as his twin.
