Last Wednesday, I was able to be a part of the 120th episode of Gandang Gabi Vice(GGV) as an audience. The laughtrip experience is twice when you see the show live. Aside from there’s no edited scenes, you can see how people behind the camera really enjoy what are they’re doing. You can see that there’s always a hardwork and preparation behind every episodes. Studio 10 encompasses of intense joy, leaving you good vibes after the live show.
Before the taping proper, stage director(or I don’t do you called that) organizing the seats of the audience that will make well-presented on TV. While Negi was indeed hilarious in orienting people a proper manner that will look nice on TV. The taping started with a prayer led by Vice Ganda.
It’s like watching in a comedy bar. Vice Ganda is really witty in throwing punchlines in his guests and I think that’s one reason why the 13-episode-slated show extends up to its second season. Despite of its late primetime schedule, GGV has an average of 20% of viewers per episode across the country. In the history of the show, it garnered 23.7% as the highest rating ever in the episode featured as guests celebrity sisters Toni and Alex Gonzaga last May 5, 2013.
There’s always a little nervous feeling in watching the show live because you may be chosen by Vice Ganda to act something that will benefit for the happiness of the viewers/show. However, executive producer and also Vice are aware not to be harsh for whoever he will pick among the audience. They always thank the chosen audience for being a sport despite of joke time.
Opening the show, Claire Cristobal proved once more her flexibility and showcased stunning stunts together with her peers in UAAP CDC Group Stunts Category. Claire is very grateful and emotional to Vice Ganda to have her on the introductory segment. The episode the we’ve been seen is also guested by the controversial Atty. Lorna Kapunan. She refused to answer regarding Napoles issue but willing to talk about her love and sex. I saw her goofy yet witty side. The sexy and gorgeous Jessy Mendiola was also there to promote her upcoming show ‘Maria Mercedes’ along with Jake Cuenca and Jason Abalos. One of the funny moments of the trio was when they’re trying to eat Bibingka in a seducing manner.
The taping started early around 6pm and ended 9pm.
Thanks to Eych Castuera for inviting me and the rest of my friends. 🙂
