Patricia Mok (born October 17, 1971) is a Chinese Singaporean actress, best known for humorous roles on Comedy Nite during her stint as a JTEAM artiste.

Career[edit]

Mok was educated in Ping Yi Secondary School and Yishun Junior College. Mok made her debut in the 1990s comedy show Comedy Nite. She was a cast member from 1996, until the demise of the show. Her roles in the skits helped her to land a contract with MediaCorp in 2006.

She won the Best Supporting Actress Award in the Star Awards 2003 for playing a dowdy and meek wife in Holland V, and earned two nominations in the Asian Television Awards in 2006 and 2008.

Mok was switched to hosting MediaCorp events and shows in 2010. In a 2012 interview, she confessed that she felt uncomfortable being an emcee and thought she was better suited to acting in dramas and sitcoms.[1] She left MediaCorp in early 2012 after her contract expired and is currently under the management of Fly Artistes.[2] In 2016, she appeared in the Singaporean-Malaysian comedy film Let's Eat!.

Personal life[edit]

Molestation incident[edit]

In June 2009, Mok was molested while she was partying at Zirca, Clarke Quay. A drunk man had pinched her buttocks, following which Mok confronted him immediately and called the police.[3] The man managed to get an out-of-court settlement and agreed to pay S$10,000 to Mok as compensation. Mok donated the entire sum to charity.[4]
