Bayani Agbayani commended his Funny Ka, Pare Ko co-star Jayson Gainza for being a good a comedian.
“Kahit si Jayson Gainza, sa napakaikling panahon na nakasama ko siya. Alam kong itong bata ito nag-aaral ito. Magaling siya,” said Bayani in an exclusive interview with Push.com.ph during their show’s thanksgiving press conference on Monday evening.
The sitcom on ABS-CBN TV Plus channel Cinemo is Bayani’s first project since he returned to the network. For that, Bayani could not help but be grateful.
“Siyempre sa tamang project na dumarating sa buhay ko. Totoo talaga ‘yun eh, hindi talaga ikaw ang magpa-plano para sayo totoo ‘yun,” he said.
During his time away from the network, one comedian who consistently showed his talent was Jayson. But before speculations could arise about them competing against each other, Bayani was quick to shut it down.
“Si Jayson naman, kaibigan ko na siya even before. Sinabi nga niya nung birthday niya, na tinawagan ako sa telepono, nasa Bacolod ako kasi ako daw ang hinahangaan niyang komedyante. Nag-phone patch ako noon at natuwa naman ako sa kanya, hinanap ko siya,” he started.
“Actually nagsulat rin kasi ako ng matagal sa comedy kaya inaalalayan ko siya. Ang galing naman nung bata, nagpapasalamat naman. Hindi niya inaangkin na sarili lang niya. Nagpapasalamat sayo ng todo-todo. ‘Thank you Kuya Bayani ah. Salamat sa ‘yo,’” he explained.
According to Bayani, he and Jayson were supposed to host the Funny One as a separate show, which was the original plan, before it became a segment on It’s Showtime.
“So bago palang magsimula ang Funny One na segment, nagkikita na kami sa bahay namin. Kasi sabi ko sa kanya hindi tayo pwedeng sumalang doon na hindi tayo nagkikita. Dapat magkikita tayo even before and after the show. Kasi ‘yun talaga ang mahalaga eh, ‘yung may bonding kayo,” said Bayani.
Apart from Jayson, the seasoned comedian likewise praised all his other co-stars who have all been continuously proving why they became part of the show.
Watch Funny Ka, Pare Ko every Sunday at 7 pm on Cinemo channel.
