Jimmy Nah (13 April 1967 – 4 January 2008), better known by his nickname "MC King", was a Singaporean comedian and actor known for his many roles in the comedy variety show Comedy Night/Nite (搞笑行动) and other J Team productions.

Early life and career[edit]

Nah entered the entertainment industry in 1990 after completing the SBC drama training course.[2] He made his debut in a drama series titled Friends Next Door. He played a character who was perennially on leave, thus earning him his nickname. He also hosted Comedy Nite along with Mark Lee and acted in a couple of local movies, including Jack Neo's Just Follow Law and I Not Stupid Too, as well as a number of local drama serials.

Personal life and death[edit]

Nah was rushed to hospital after he experienced breathing difficulties while at home near Old Airport Road in the morning of 4 January 2008. He died at about 13:00 hours at Tan Tock Seng Hospital at the age of 40. A MediaCorp report said it is not known if the well-known actor had suffered from any health problems. In his last entry he posted on his blog on New Year's Eve, he had wished for good health in the coming year and for the renewal of his MediaCorp contract. His death certificate stated the cause of death as heart and lung failure. Nah was cremated on Sunday, January 6, 2008, following a funeral. Actors present at the service included Patricia Mok, Rayson Tan, Henry Thia, Lin Youfa, and Steven Woon.
