Funnyman Michael V., also known as Bitoy, reminisced his first-ever TV show in ABS-CBN titled “Ready, Get Set, Go!” which ran from 1992 to 1997.

 


 

Sino nakaka-alala sa "Ready, Get Set, Go!" ng ABS-CBN? Bakit wala akong mahanap na photo or video sa internet? This is my first ever TV Show! I used to drive from Cavite to Quezon City every Sunday and make it to the studio before 11am. I did rap intros to all the segments with Eric Quizon, Patrick Guzman, Maila Gumila, Eula Valdez, Eagle Riggs, Danny Pansalin and (later on) Carmina Villaroel and G. Toengi as hosts. I worked with Wenn Deramas, Enrico Santos, Deo Endrinal, Biboy Arboleda, Manong Gilbert Perez, Alou Almaden, Ms. Dagang Vilbar, Mam Cory Vidanes (and a lot I couldn't remember) on this show for 6 years! "Ready, Get Set, Go!" was undefeated in ratings until its final episode. Incidentally, it was supposed to be my final year too. Noon ako nag-decide na Sunday should be a FAMILY DAY and it's been like that for me ever since.

Posting photos of the show on Instagram, Bitoy, who was a former Kapamilya, asked his followers, “Sino nakaka-alala sa "Ready, Get Set, Go!" ng ABS-CBN? Bakit wala akong mahanap na photo or video sa internet?”

He then went on to share that this was his first-ever TV show, “This is my first ever TV Show! I used to drive from Cavite to Quezon City every Sunday and make it to the studio before 11am. I did rap intros to all the segments with Eric Quizon, Patrick Guzman, Maila Gumila, Eula Valdez, Eagle Riggs, Danny Pansalin and (later on) Carmina Villaroel and G. Toengi as hosts.”

Further, Bitoy recalled more of the people he has worked with during the show’s six-year run. “I worked with Wenn Deramas, Enrico Santos, Deo Endrinal, Biboy Arboleda, Manong Gilbert Perez, Alou Almaden, Ms. Dagang Vilbar, Mam Cory Vidanes (and a lot I couldn't remember) on this show for 6 years!”

“’Ready, Get Set, Go!’ was undefeated in ratings until its final episode. Incidentally, it was supposed to be my final year too. Noon ako nag-decide na Sunday should be a FAMILY DAY and it's been like that for me ever since,” he concluded.
