Vice Ganda wants to be a talk show host


Vice Ganda just signed a contract for another 15 months as host-resident judge of Showtime and other possible programs in ABS-CBN. When asked what other types of shows he would like to do in the Kapamilya network, Vice said he wants a program wherein he can speak his mind on various issues aside from just doing comedy. "Mas gusto ko 'lsquo;yung mga shows na nabibigyan ako ng kalayaang magsalita, hindi lang basta umaarte. Kaya ko rin namang umarte pero mas gusto ko 'lsquo;yung nagsasalita ako. Gusto kong maging part ng The Buzz, E-Live, SNN, basta 'lsquo;yung nakakapagsalita ako, naibabahagi ko 'lsquo;yung opinyon ko, hindi lang basta gumaganap ako na karakter."

Vice believes that making people laugh doesn'rsquo;t only require a performer to do physical stunts. For him, one can elicit laughter by just mere talk. "Sa talk show feeling ko makakagawa ako ng ibang brand ng comedy. Gusto ko talaga kasi 'lsquo;yung nakakapagpatawa ng tao dahil sa mga sinasabi hindi sa ginagawa. Marami na tayong naging komedyante na nakakapagpatawa dahil sa mga ginagawa. Gusto ko utak at bibig naman ang papaganahin ko para makapagpatawa ng mga tao. Hindi na lang ako nakakapagpasaya nakakapagbigay din ako ng mga karampatang impormasyon. Funny but still informative."

Although he would love to host shows like The Buzz or SNN, Vice doesn'rsquo;t want to be associated in the world of 'lsquo;chismis.'rsquo; "Ang pagiging chismosa ang pinakamadaling propesyon sa mundo. Pero ayokong maging chismosa kasi kapag ganun parang karamihan ng pinaguusapan niyo mga pawang narinig lang, mga walang kasiguruhan. Ayoko nun."

This comedian who now has his own film entitled Petrang Kabayo to be out this October began his career doing stand up acts in various sing-along comedy bars. Though he now has many commitments on TV and movies, Vice said he would still make time to do show in comedy bars. "Hindi ko pwedeng iwan 'yun kasi gusto ko siyang gawin. Isinisingit ko talaga sa schedule. Hindi naman sa pagmamayabang pero malaking dagdag 'yung exposure ko sa Showtime. Lumawak 'yung audience ko. Marami nang gusto akong mapanood. Hindi na nga nagkakasya sa venue. Nung nakaraan 12 pa ang show ko, 9 pa lang puno na, tayuan na."
