John Prats shares how Angelica Panganiban became his best friend


102315-angejohn_main.jpgOn Tonight with Boy Abunda, best of friends Angelica “Angge” Panganiban and John “Pratty” Prats talked to host Boy Abunda about doing comedy and their friendship. 

Asked how difficult it is to do comedy, Angelica answered, “e hindi ko nga rin po alam. Para na siyang naging part na lang din ng pagkatao ko. Kasi nung una kinakabahan ako. Kasi given naman po sa isang comedy yung rapport talaga e para maganda ang maging timing niyo and siyempre kailangan talagang sharp ka, witty ka. ‘Pag nasa Banana Split hindi ako kinakabahan, siyempre may kaba, pero alam kong masaya lang ‘to. Noong una kapag may gagawin akong movie kinakabahan ako, parang kaya ko ba ‘to asan sila. Siyempre nakasanayan ko na rin sila yung kasama ko, then eventually parang pag napapanuod ko naman yung sarili ko and yung mga tao naman sinusuportahan ako and sabi niyo nga nagwo-work siya so siguro nga magic na lang ‘to.”

How do they know that a gag is funny? John answered, “ang basehan namin Tito Boy ‘pag tumatawa yung mga cameraman, mga audio man. So kapag tumatawa sila, okay nakakatuwa ang ginawa natin tuloy lang. ‘Pag hindi, baguhin natin waley.”

The two also revealed how comfortable their Banana Split family have become that they don’t take offense when they criticize each other. “Ganun kami kakomportable Tito Boy na kapag may sinabi kami hindi na nao-offend.”

Angelica gave an example of how she reminds co-comedian Jayson Gainza regarding his performance. “’Hoy tandaan mo yung timing, tandaan mo ang mga linya mo ha.’ Kasi may pagkalutang talaga siya. Kilala na talaga namin ang isa’t isa so alam namin kung saan namin sila dapat suportahan and kami rin. Ako kapag pagod hindi nila ako kinakausap.” 

John also shared how his friendship with Angelica started. John said, “matagal na kami magkakilala ni Angge e. G-Mik, Ang TV days pa lang magkakilala na kami pero ka-close niya si Camille. So nung pumasok ako sa Banana dun kami naging close ni Angge.” 


102315-angejohn_main.jpgHe also revealed how they ended up calling each other “Pets.”  “So sobrang ako yung malambing sa friendship namin, naghahanap ako ng pet name.”


Asked what could be the most difficult advice John has ever asked her regarding women, Angelica said, “wala ho talaga akong maisip, ang bumabalik lang sa isip ko yung time na may pinagdaanan talaga si Pratty na talagang parang pabaliw na siya. Na parang kung saan-saan pumupunta magdadala lang siya ng kape, hindi naman siya kinikita nung girl parang ako anong nangyayari sa’yo, tigilan mo na yang katangahan mo, mag move-on ka na ganyan.” 

John added, “siya lang talaga nakapagsabi sa akin nun Tito Boy. Dun kami naging close, talagang hindi niya ako iniwan. Down na down ako nung time na yun, nandun lang siya pinapasaya niya lang ako.” 

John revealed at that time he would always hang out at Angelica’s house. Angelica shared “dun ko nakita na itong taong to kailangan talaga ng makakasama.” Angelica continued, “bumibili ng kotse bigla-bigla, di ba? Sobrang kuripot niya po kasi.” This is the reason why Angelica told John “anong nangyayari sa’yo hindi ikaw ‘to gumising ka nga.” 

Asked if Angelica were to ask him “magpapakasal na kaya kami?” what would John tell Angelica?  John joked, “Magpropose ka na. Tulungan kita Pets mag-flash mob ka uli.” Angelica agreed but says hers would be done at the Fort. (John proposed to Isabel Oli via flash mob at Eastwood Mall.)

John then turned serious and he answered “alam ko naman na gusto na niya e.” 

John shared Angelica’s reaction when he told her that his wife Isabel Oli was already pregnant with their child. At first Angelica’s reaction was a lackluster “ay ang saya naman.” But then John said, “bumawi naman siya. Sabi niya basta ha ‘pag kambal yan akin isa ha, kahit anong gender kunin ko yan.”

To Angelica, John said, “Naniniwala naman ako na darating Pets yung time na yun.”

Angelica said, “Sobrang hilig ko sa bata. Ever since talaga bata pa lang ho ako mahilig na po ako sa bata kaya ho naging best friend ko ‘to kasi maliit di ba, so nacute-an ako sa kanya.”
