Profile Bio Text
Şahan Gökbakar (born 22 October, 1980 in İzmir, Turkey) is a popular Turkish comedian and film actor, specialising in burlesque comedy. Gökbakar grew up in Turkey`s capital, Ankara, attending the primary school and high school attached to the Middle East Technical University (ODTÜ).
After completing high school in 1997, he went on to study music and visual arts at Bilkent University`s Faculty of Fine Arts in Ankara. He graduated in 2002, with a GPA that ranked him fourth out of a total class of 350. Gökbakar`s early life was overshadowed by the death of his father in a traffic accident when he was eight years old.
After university, Gökbakar tried his luck in some promo elections and as a result was given the opportunity to make his own program on TV8, a Turkish satellite TV channel. His first show was called "Zibin" (a Turkish word for "very soft undershirt for a baby"). The show received good ratings and was followed by another called "Zoka" ("trap" or "bait") and finally a show called "Dikkat Şahan çıkabilir" ("Watch out: Şahan May Appear") which established him in a long line of nationally-famous burlesque comedians stretching back to the 19th century. But Şahan Gökbakar`s humor is focused mainly on 21st century societal conventions governing Turkey`s leisure and consumerist classes, and the ways in which they conflict with the views of the uneducated outsider who is often unaware of such conventions.
