A decade ago, Chuwit Kamolvisit was one of the biggest pimps in the country, operating an empire of Bangkok massage parlors. Today he’s a dutifully elected public servant, tapping into public disgust with politics as usual to win at the polls and represent the capital in parliament. His popularity is not without controversy. Some embrace the “mad as hell and not gonna take it anymore” whistle-blower, while others see a crafty opportunist. But most would agree he’s always good for a laugh – and great for news copy.
From stories of kidnap to electoral street brawls, Chuwit is often at the center of some of the most entertaining political headlines.
Coconuts TV sat down with the controversial icon for an exclusive interview in his very own Chuwit Gardens.
