Stand-up comedian Gil Morales, more popularly known as Ate Gay, is using his passion for food and cooking to cope with the crisis brought about by the coronavirus pandemic.

Ate Gay, 48, recently started a siomai business as his sources of livelihood dried up following the closure of comedy bars Klownz and Zirkoh, where he worked for 18 and 16 years, respectively, in June.

“Ate Gay's Siomai Himala” opened only last Monday, July 20, but already has won dozens of satisfied customers. On his opening day, Ate Gay said on Instagram: “Sold out naman po ang siomai ko kaya lang masakit sa balakang kakapagod…

“Siguro bagong mundo kaya sana kayanin ko araw-araw ... maraming salamat po sa inyo... bukas uli...”

Ate Gay rose to fame as the impersonator of veteran actress Nora Aunor, otherwise known as Ate Guy.

Both his showbiz moniker and the name of his business were inspired by Nora, who, in 1982, starred in the iconic film Himala.

Ate Gay used to perform at Klownz and Zirkoh in Quezon City, both of which were owned by fellow comedian and GMA-7 artist Allan K.

Due to “tremendous economic, financial loss” brought about by the pandemic, Allan K decided to close these establishments on June 29.
