“Salamat sa love mo at lahat ng magaganda nating memories together. You will always be my favorite ‘sawsawero,'” Perez said, referring to the now-defunct TV5 talk show’s live studio audience.

“I will miss you. No more pain,” she added, sending her condolences to Mortel’s family.

Mortel was hospitalized for three months before succumbing to pneumonia, his sister Jean Mortel Chupungco confirmed also yesterday.

The comedian hosted “Face to Face” alongside Perez from 2010 to 2013. He then launched his own online talk show “Tsikahans” on Facebook last year. Fellow comedian and “It’s Showtime” host Vice Ganda also credits Mortel for discovering him at a comedy bar.  /ra
