On the live telecast of It’s Showtime today, November 15, host Vice Ganda returned with a bang on the noontime show after being on hiatus for a couple of weeks because of health issues.
After singing for the show's opening number, The comedian got praises from his co-hosts that he can sing again, but Vice said that his voice is still “basag basag.”
Vice added that he missed everyone a lot and that he has been watching the show. Further, he expressed his gratitude that he was able to rest and return.
Knowing that he still has a polyp in his vocal cord, Vice’s co-hosts tried to prevent him from shouting to which he replied, “Pag nandito ka kahit ayaw mong sumigaw, yung energy ng madlang pipol nakakatakot… mapapahiyaw ka talaga.”
Meanwhile, Billy Crawford expressed how much he missed his friend and is happy that he is back, “Alam mo Vice ang tagal tagal mo talagang nawala dito and alam mo yung sinasabi, pamilya tayo eh… and isa sa atin ang mawala, especially ikaw o lahat tayo, pantay pantay tayo dito. Yung parang pilay, pilay kami. Pilay yung lamesa. Hindi kami makatayo ng maayos pero ginagawa lang namin na magpasaya sa madlang pipol dahil alam namin na ikaw rin ay nagpapasaya pa rin ng madlang pipol kahit na nanonood ka lang…”
Vice said that he realized something when he was just watching the show, “Nanonood ako, sabi ko, ang saya saya nila. Ang saya ng madlang pipol. Itong Showtime mabubuhay to ng wala ako pero narealize ko, hindi pala ako mabubuhay ng walang Showtime.”
When asked if he is back in the noontime show for good already, Vice said, “Syempre, for good naman, habambuhay tayo magkasama. Pero ito na, kasi nga, masaya po tayong lahat, masaya din ako pero hindi kasi natanggal yung polyp sa lalamunan ko. Kailangan ko pong magpa-opera sa January kaya mawawala ako ulit sa January pero sandaling sandaling sandali lang kasi hindi naman pwedeng magtagal. Ikamamatay ko. Mas ikamamatay ko ang pagkawala rito kesa sa polyp sa lalamunan ko kaya babalik din po ako agad.”
