Vice Ganda admitted that he once dreamed of becoming a guest star on “Bubble Gang,” but failed to appear in it as he did not meet the “standards” of the long-running gag show.

The comedian-TV host revealed this during the Showtime Sexy Babe segment of “It’s Showtime” yesterday, Feb. 9. During the segment, Vice Ganda poked fun at his co-host Ogie Alcasid’s facial expressions while talking to a contestant, describing them as “Bubble Gang” acting.


“Ang taray ng acting mo, no. ‘Bubble Gang,” he said to Alcasid. (Your acting is amusing. “Bubble Gang.”)

When their fellow host Vhong Navarro asked what Vice Ganda meant with “Bubble Gang” acting, the comedian noted that he has never appeared in the show though he dreamed of being in it.


“Ewan ko. Di naman ako nakapag-guest doon. Alam mo, dati, lagi akong guest sa ‘Idol Ko si Kap,’ pero diyan (‘Bubble Gang’), di ako nakapag-guest,” he answered, referring to the early 2000’s GMA sitcom starring Bong Revilla. “Dream ko iyan dati, ‘yung Bubble Gang.”

(I don’t know. I never became a guest there. You know, in the past, I always guested in “Idol Ko si Kap,” but I never guested in “Bubble Gang.” That was my dream before, “Bubble Gang.”)

Alcasid then joked that Vice Ganda’s talent fee might have been too high so he was rejected by the show, but Vice Ganda clarified that he did not get to join “Bubble Gang” because the show’s “standards” were too high.

“Hindi. Ang taas lang ng standards niyo. Di ako pasok,” he told Alcasid. (No. Your standards were just too high. I didn’t qualify.)

Alcasid is one of the original cast members of “Bubble Gang,” which has been running for 25 years. He left the show when he transferred to ABS-CBN in 2017. His wife, Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez, also eventually became a Kapamilya in 2018.

Meanwhile, Vice Ganda reportedly started his television career in GMA through the 2005 TV drama “Saang Sulok ng Langit.”  /ra
