Joey de Leon marks 40 years of ‘Eat Bulaga’ with a salute to ‘EBrybody’
Joey de Leon honored the upcoming 40 years of the noontime TV variety program “Eat Bulaga” by acknowledging his colleagues in the show and their loyal viewers.
To celebrate the show’s milestone, De Leon posted a series of photos featuring the “Eat Bulaga” hosts and crew, via his Instagram account today, July 3.
“APAT NA DEKADA NG EB! Hindi na mawawala ang EB sa PUSO ng telEBisyon!!! At ang EB ay nasa dibdib din kasi ng forEBer!!! At sa amin KAYO ang nangunguna…EBrybody,” de Leon said.
(Four decades of EB! EB will not be lost in the heart of telEBisyon! And because EB is also in the heart of forEBer! And for us, you are number one… EBrybody.)
The TV host also talked about “Eat Bulaga” moving to its new location at APT Studios in Cainta, Rizal.
“Lumipat kami sa APT Studios ngayong pang-APT este, pang-APAT na dekada namin,” de Leon said in a separate post. “At upang maging ‘APAT’ ang APT kailangang nandun lagi ang isa pang ‘A’…at kayo yun…Audience!
(We moved to APT Studios in our “pang-APT,” I mean, our fourth decade! And for APT to be four, the letter A should always be there, and that is you, our audience.)
De Leon expressed his gratitude to the show’s cast, crew, supporters and to God for the show having reached 40 years. Another one of his posts today showed the hosts and staff posing at the audience area of the studio.
“TATANDA KAMI…TATANDA KAYO…TATANDA LAHAT pero MATATANDAAN NYO KAMI! TANDAAN NYO YAN! Maligayang APAT NA DEKADA sa BUONG BARKADA,” he exclaimed. “At sa lahat ng DABARKADS pagpapalang SAGAD! Salamat sa GOD!”
(We will get old, you will get old, everyone will get old, but you will remember us. Remember that. Happy four decades to the whole gang! And to all “dabarkads,” much blessings to all of you! Thank you, God!)
