Pongsak Pongsuwan

Pongsak Pongsuwan ( _th. พงศ์ศักดิ์ พงษ์สุวรรณ, born April 7, 1966) is a Thai comedian and actor. He is best known in Thailand by his stage name, Theng Therdtherng ( _th. เท่ง เถิดเทิง).

A popular comedian in Thai nightclubs and on television, Theng made his feature-film debut in "Killer Tattoo", a 2001 action-comedy that was the directorial debut for Yuthlert Sippapak. He portrayed "Elvis M 16", an amnesiac hitman-turned-Elvis impersonator, who is lured back to do one more job. The film starred several other Thai comics, including Petchtai Wongkamlao and Suthep Po-ngam, all in sometimes dramatic, action-filled roles.

In 2005, he starred in one of the year's biggest hits for the Thai film industry, "Luang Phii Theng" ("The Holy Man"), portraying a street hood who becomes a Buddhist monk. The comedy earned 141 million baht at the box office.

The television production house, Work Point, hoped to repeat that success in 2006, with "Nong Teng Nakleng-pukaotong", which teamed Theng up with Choosak Eamsuk (better known as "Nong Cha Cha Cha"). Theng starred as a likay performer in 1923 Siam, who is faced with the prospect of losing his theater with the advent of films. With his friend (Nong), Theng tries to derail production of the first Thai film, "Miss Suwanna of Siam".

In addition to his film work, Pongsak regularly appears with Choosak and Petchtai Wongkamlao on the "Ching Roi Ching Lan" television variety series.
