Yes, Progress Singapore Party member Craig Teo is the guy from old 90s local sitcoms

So I chanced upon this on social media today:

I thought, hey, that guy looked familiar. Even the name Craig Teo sounded familiar

He looks like the guy who starred in local 90s sitcoms Happy Belly and Three Rooms.

So I googled him. It turns out he has his own SgWiki page: "Craig Teo, formerly known as Gregory Teo, is a Singaporean actor, presenter, and comedian."

It is him!

It appears that he is now a member of Dr Tan Cheng Bock's Progress Singapore Party (PSP), showing up in the party's photos and hosting its videos.

Good for him.

Only a few years ago, he starred as local forensic legend, Professor Chao Tzee Cheng, in the Channel 5 docudrama series Whispers Of The Dead for two seasons.

By then, he was billed as Craig Teo. Back in the 90s, it was Gregory Teo, which is what I remember him as.

Too bad he is not in the first batch of potential PSP candidates for the upcoming General Elections recently announced.

It would be a shame if the party doesn't field him as a candidate.

After all, it seems that being a former cast member of Happy Belly gives you a pretty good chance of getting elected.
