HuGOT Your VOte?   WTF.... 

Wala Talagang Forever... sa Malacanang is the new Jon Santos political comedy.  Happy to have worked in this production last year, for 6 nights in Teatrino in Greenhills.  I handled the onsite editing and man-on-the-street interview of the audience. And yes, there are some nights that we almost didn't make it, photo finish editing.  But I survived!   Met some very interesting people while doing this work -- and they have the "weirdest" questions for President P-noy, when I told them he MIGHT be in the show.  

     "I want to ask P-noy, kailan siya magkaka-lovelife?"
     "From 1-10, puede niyo ba i-rate kung gaano niyo ka bestfriend si Mar Roxas?"
     "Gaano karami ang hairfall niyo kada araw?"

And every night this question never fails to pop up....

      "President P-noy, when will you get married?"

Interesting questions from different kinds of people.  That's how diverse the audience who went to the show.  Fast forward to 2016 -- the show now has a re-run at the Ceremonial Hall of the Marriott Grand Ballroom, Resorts World Manila.  With just 3 months before the elections, you can expect a braver, more pointed, but still witty and hilarious script from Jon.   

It is my first time to work with him, and I must say -- he is such an amazing artist, with a brilliant mind. Imagine, the show runs for 2 hours, with just VTRs in between for his costume changes.. but his energy and wit never falters from one character to the other. And off-cam, a very friendly person.

For the Mariott show, we handled the shoot and editing of the VTRs of the political ads and the Miss Universe brouhaha, featuring Harvey and Pia Backworst (2015 Miss Universal Adapter).  

With colleague and friend Mario Dumawal of TV Patrol.  

Here are 3 reasons why you should WATCH this show:

1.  With Meeryam, P-noy, Nognog, Grace Foe, Mar Roskas in the show, the punchlines might help you decide who to vote for in May  :)

2.  You also might realize who is NOT deserving of your vote.  It will open your eyes to the reality and real motives of our political candidates.  

3.  L.B.M -- Laughter is still the Best Medicine.  And to experience it with other people in the audience, it becomes a fun bonding night among kindred spirits.

You still have time to catch the shows:   Feb 20, 24-27, March 4-6.


Catch WTF on April 16 and 17 -- 3pm and 8pm.
See you there
