How Vice Ganda Can Cheer Up Vhong Navarro

Written By Nikki Mendz on Wednesday, February 5, 2014 | 9:11 AM

Vice Ganda's spontaneity in comedy is truly exceptional! Yesterday, February 4, during the Question and Answer portion of "I Am Pogay" on It's Showtime (where contestants are asked to relate a mystery object to life), the contestant's mystery object was "hawla" (cage). The contestant (Limuel 'EWEN' Dizon) explained that a cage symbolizes safety, to which, Vice quipped, "Safety! Naku, sabi ko na nga ba, Vhong dapat nagdala ka ng hawla!" He was obviously referring to Vhong Navarro, their co-host who, recently, became a victim of a violent crime when he was beaten up by six men last January 22 in a condominium in Taguig city.

Vice Ganda's ad lib sent everyone into fits of laughter, but Vice was not yet done. He continued joking (complete with an angry gesture), "... sabi niya kasi safety eh, kung naisip natin iyon, de hindi napahamak yung kaibigan natin!" Billy Crawford followed up with, "Saan mo nga gagamitin ang hawla sa safety?" To this, Vice delivered the ultimate punch line: "paglabas ng elevator!" This elicited more laughter both from the audience and from his co-host, Billy. Anne Curtis, Vhong's love team on the show, was speechless. She seemed to appreciate the joke, but at the same time, it also reminded her of the pain she felt for their friend.

Jhong Hilario, Vhong's best friend in real life, who was one of the judges, was quietly smiling at the side. When Billy noticed that Limuel was sweating profusely, Vice asked for a tissue from the show's staff. While wiping Limuel's face, Vice asked him, "Bakit ka pinagpawisan? Suspect ka ba?"

This exchange of lines (alone) between Vice and Billy, complete with perfect timing, clarity and expression, can tell us why It's Showtime has toppled the country's longest-running noontime variety program on air. It also shows why Vice Ganda has become one of the highest paid actors in the Philippines today. Surely, these Vice Ganda jokes on It's Showtime can somehow cheer Vhong Navarro up.

Here's a video of that funny Vice Ganda joke:
