In the desire to "help cultivate the comedic talent pool of Cebu", Comedy Manila and Comedy Cebu are bringing their first-ever live stand-up comedy show in Cebu this December. LAUGHTRIP Queen City of the South: Cebu is a one-time event that will take place in Ibiza Beach Club at Movenpick Resort & Spa on December 5, 2014, Friday. This fun event will be featuring the best stand-up comedians in the country, including Victor Anastacio, Red Ollero, Alex Calleja (Daddy Alex of 101.9 MOR and a writer for Goin' Bulilit), GB Labrador (ABS-CBN Screenwriter), and James Caraan; and will be hosted by Eri Neeman (from Bubble Gang and MTV Philippines). It will also be joined by Gary Jackson, an international stand-up comedian of TakeOut Comedy, which is based in Hongkong.
These talented comedians practice point-of-view comedy and have competed and won in different comedy festivals abroad. They have been bringing their sets to different parts of the Philippines to enrich the appreciation of comedy and Filipino talent. Here's a description of the kind of comedy they wish to bring to the Cebuano audience: “For those who would like to have an alternative type of Stand UpComedy compared to the mainstream type of Stand Up that you watch at Comedy Bars. The jokes we do are everyday things, stories, personal experiences, points of view. We don't look to insult the crowd for laughs. If you want to this type of Stand Up Comedy to spread out and be accepted in the country, then like our page, watch our shows and laugh with us.”
The 90-minute debut show at Ibiza Beach Club at Movenpick Resort and Hotel in Mactan, Lapu-Lapu City on December 5, 2014, 8:30pm will be a FREE admission show, and many other fun shows are to be expected from Comedy Cebu.
