EXCLUSIVE: Pooh is very impressed with Melai Cantiveros’s impersonations
052815-pooh_main.jpgComedian Pooh is happy for the continuous success of Melai Cantiveros in the hit reality competition Your Face Sounds Familiar. In an interview with Push, he said that it is no surprise that Melai is able to pull of the weekly impersonations since she is a natural comedian. Pooh is an impersonator himself and he remarked that he is very impressed with the work that Melai has done.

Wala namang hindi matutuwa kay Melai, kahit hindi mo baguhin ang mukha niyan. Nakakatuwa na lalo na ngayon ang dami na niyang na-impersonate. Actually, nagtatanong lang yan sa akin dati kung papaano ang impersonation, ngayon siya na ang mas maraming nai-impersonate, mas bilib ako sa kanya ngayon,” he said. 

Pooh shared that his favorite impersonation was when Melai dressed up as Rihanna. “Well given na kasi ‘yung kay Elizabeth Ramsey kasi unang-una bisaya rin siya, parang binago mo lang ‘yung mukha niya pero ang isa sa mga in-impersonate niya na gustong-gusto ko is si Rihanna, ‘yon ‘yung Rihanna, favorite niya ‘yun so nabigyan niya ng justice.”

He pointed out that with Rihanna, Melai has undergone major transformations compared when she copied Elizabeth. “Kasi different ‘yung accent niya, nag-iba rin kumbaga mas napag-aralan niya. ‘Yung kay Elizabeth kasi oo pinag-aralan niya siguro ‘yung mga actions, diction, lahat, pero lahat nandiyan na, siya na ‘yun.”

On what he thinks is Melai’s edge over the other Your Face Sounds Familiar contestants, Pooh said, “Maganda kasi kay Melai kumakanta siya ng maayos pagsinabi mo na ayusin, pag sinabi mo na pabiro, kaya niya ‘yun. Flexible kahit anong ipagawa mo sa kanya, kaya niya ng effortless.”
