I can’t avoid to watch to this show’s silliness since my family watch it every noon. Just a couple of minutes ago I found the absurdity of it, made me shake my head.
You call these people entertainers? Comedians? Are these people who make you laugh? What kind of humor people do these people crack, while they scream for the audience to cooperate calling them the “madlang people?”
Just look at Vice Ganda. Listen to every word he says? Whenever he’s insulting every contestant, cracking punch line simultaneously, does he make you amused? Is insulting or making a person look ridiculous a joke now? So this is what made you laugh? Well, I laugh but not with the joke, but sardonically with the show.
Look at Vhong Navarro? Does he have the wit to make himself funny in front of the audience? And the rest of the hosts? You call these people entertainers? God forgive me. But as far as my critical mind is concerned, these guys show foolishness and nothing but foolishness.
I wonder how Filipinos nowadays can be amused? What standards do the majority follow when it comes to comedy and entertainment? Consider the values in watching a noon time show such as Showtime. What do we have?
I better watch Lourd De Veyra’s Wasak. I love the humor of this show, especially Bayaw Jun’s funny, irrelevant manner of asking questions to the interviewee. Sometimes he’s outrageous; but he’s really funny. Intellectually and radically funny.
If you’re looking for foolishness–relevant foolishness that is–why don’t you watch Wasak? Well, you can’t watch it at noontime. So forget about watching Showtime at noon. Try to turn off your TV at noon and turn it on every Tuesdays in the evening at TV5 or Aksyon TV.
Or I advise you to watch Willing Willie at noontime instead. Well, Willie Revillame is sure a top-notch entertainer despite his family background and his past battle with ABSCBN and MTRCB. Willie Revillame is sure to have wits and humor to entertain Filipino people. Nevermind his machismo and indecent behavior. It’s not relevant to think about it. Let us not be hypocrites. Aren’t great comedians always have trouble with authorities? Remember Lenny Bruce and Andy Kaufman and the American courts of law?
Well, Willie Revillame does not only entertain Filipino masses, he also help them, lift them from their grim lots.
What about you? What do you think about Showtime? What do you think about Vice Ganda? Does this homosexual make you laugh?
