Friday nights have something to look forward to after five days of school and work for some of us. It seems only yesterday when singer Ogie Alcasid, rapper Michael V and the rest of the cast started acting on television. The skits are simple, but the way they portray each is hilarious. We continue laughing at them anytime they cross our minds like Brod Pete’s impersonation of a religious leader and his delivery of his homily. One of their hits were the drama series that were remade, and of which dialogues were made ridiculous. Yaya and Angelina’s segment have been what people want to see each show time. The way bratty Angelina makes impossible demands to her babysitter,Yaya,has been made into a movie already. The jokes become topics of conversation during the entire week and some even try to imitate.People wants to go home before Bubble Gang begins because it is something we don’t want to miss.It is also enjoyable to see how evident the actors love making their selves look funny and insane.
The Bubble Gang is celebrating the 15th year anniversary. When I read in Crispina Bellen’s column in the Manila Bulletin that they would be making tribute to the late novelty singer, Yoyoy Villame, I became excited and wondered how they would present it.I noted that they made the songs modern by dancing with it in the modern beat and made stories to fit it well. Yoyoy would be happy to see it himself if he is alive today. We hope that the Bubble Gang would continue making our Fridays happy. They have been an inspiration for other TV networks to have their own gag shows because Bubble Gang taught them that Filipinos love to stay at home at night and laugh with their families. I think that the show would be an institution also like that of Dolphy’s John and Marsha. Dolphy is the comedy king of the Philippine movies.
