Singapore's very own celebrity, Gurmit Singh is a beloved personality to people from all walks of life. His versatility and multi-faceted talents as a comedian, host, singer, actor makes him a hit with the audience wherever he goes.

Helming the award-winning sitcom PCK Pte Ltd as Phua Chu Kang, Gurmit has penetrated the public's consciousness and created a MediaCorp icon recognised by all. His talents were vindicated when he and PCK Pte Ltd won numerous awards at the Asian Television Awards; and himself honoured as the reigning Comedy King after winning the coveted Best Comedy Actor for five years (1998-2001 & 2003).

As some people may know, Gurmit Singh, is actually an ex-NPCC member. He was also the Best Cadet Inspector from the batch of 29 May 1982 Cadet Inspectors' Training Course. (See pictures below).
