Vice Ganda turned emotional as he opened up about feeling lonely in the time of the pandemic. 

In an interview with former manager Ogie Diaz, Vice said he mastered the art of concealing his emotions mainly because of the people surrounding him — his audience. 


Kasi nga, ‘yung trabaho ko is considering not just myself but considering a lot of people. ‘Di ba ‘yung magbabasa ka lang online, ‘Napapasaya mo ako lalo na ngayong pandemya. Stressed na stressed ako pero nawawala stress ko ‘pag napapanood ka.’ May purpose ka na,” Vice said. 

While money is part of the equation, the comedian admitted it’s more than that — especially since he loves what he’s doing. 

“Hindi ito kaplastikan ha. Malaking bagay ‘yung sweldo, pera. Pera-pera din ‘di ba? Pero over and above the money, more than the salary, ‘pag tumagal ka sa ginagawa mo at mahal na mahal mo ‘yung ginagawa mo, hindi na ‘yun pera lang,” he said.

Vice then became emotional when he started talking about asking himself questions about whether or not people still find him funny or great at what he does. 

Meron akong gustong gawin, meron akong gustong ibigay. Tapos ngayon ang hirap. Hindi ko talaga alam kung nakakatawa pa ako o kung magaling pa ako kasi hindi ko naman naririnig kung may nag-rereact. Wala namang audience,” he stated. 

Dati, lumabas pa lang ako nagwawala na ‘yung audience. So, parang damang-dama mo ‘yung love. Lalo kang gaganahan. ‘Ah ito ‘yung mga nag-aabang sa akin. Patatawanin ko kayong lahat.’ Ngyon wala nang ganu’n. Patatawin mo dingding,” he added. 

Vice then shared how he would often look back at his days as a stand-up comedian in comedy bars. 

Pero lagi ang iniisip ko na lang din ‘Huy kabayo, ‘wag kang umarte. Ganyan ka din naman dati. Nagsimula ka naman sa comedy bar na walang audience. Pero bayad ka ng 250. So kahit walang audience, kailangan mo magpatawa. Kaya ka nga nasanay ng ganyan, kaya ka nga na-train ng ganyan kasi nagpatawa ka na ang nanoood lang sa’yo ay sulok, dingding,’” he said.

“So, ‘yun na lang ang iniisip ko. Training ‘to. Magte-train ako na walang tao, walang tumatawa. Para ‘pag nagbukas na ulit, ‘pag may audience na ulit, mas bongga ‘yun. Kasi, kung dingding nga kaya kung patawanin, mas kaya kong patawanin mo ‘yung mga totoong tao na may kaluluwa. Laban ’to,” he added.

When asked what he wants to prove, Vice Ganda admitted that thriving amid ABS-CBN’s struggles following the non-renewal of the media giant’s broadcast franchise is one of them.
