At the grand media conference for Bubble Gang’s anniversary special, the members of the entertainment press did not bother to ask what the secret of the show’s longevity was. Besides, being the country’s longest-running and multi-awarded gag show, it’s easy to know why it is still on air.
“We are very comfortable with each other, and the Bubble Gang’s set has become a very collaborative environment,” Michael V. told the media.
The comedian, whose monumental contributions for Bubble Gang lead to the show’s unwavering success, playfully shared what loyal viewers and fresh audiences alike should look forward to in the anniversary special.
“It’s a crazy project and pretty ambitious. To tell you honestly, we just wanted to play and yet gusto namin ipakita na kahit kami naglalaro, ‘yung quality hindi mawawala. So this time around, it’s a visual treat na talagang sa teaser pa lang gugulatin namin kayo,” he shared.
The gag show treats its viewers with a two-part superhero telemovie special for its 24th anniversary entitled The ScAvengers airing on Nov. 15 and 22.
“We have new audience every single day and episode. It’s like our duty and also our pleasure to create something for these new audiences, sa mga bagong sumusuporta at sumusubaybay. At the same time, we are maintaining ‘yung mga suki na namin,” he added.
The ScAvengers, which is a word play on Marvel Studio’s eponymous characters, the Avengers, revolves around an outcast group of homeless people who scavenge for a living and find extraordinary scraps which fell from the outer space. Little do they know that these garbage possess superpowers that will transform them from outcasts to their barangay’s greatest superheroes collectively called as The ScAvengers.
