Comedian Carlos ‘Ogag’ Alde passes away at 60
Comedian Carlos (Caloy) Alde passed away on Friday, July 22, a few days before his 61st birthday on July 28, his family confirmed.
Alde, also referred to as “Ogag” and the Philippines’ Mr. Bean, suffered from a massive heart attack, as per an exclusive statement of the comedian’s wife Rhoda to Philippine Entertainment Portal today, July 25.
“We rushed him to the hospital kaya lang wala na. They tried to revive him sa hospital pero talagang wala nang electric impulse ang heart niya,” his wife was quoted as saying.
(We rushed him to the hospital but it was too late. They tried to revive him in the hospital but his heart already had no electric impulse.)
Rhoda stated that Alde has been taking maintenance medicines after he was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and chronic kidney disease two years ago.
Alde’s fellow actor Alwyn Uytingco paid tribute to the comedian by remembering his humor, through Uytingco’s Facebook page last Saturday, July 23.
“‘I love nature.’ Ang joke mo na di ko malilimutan. Salamat, kuya Caloy,” Uytingco said. (“I love nature.” Your joke that I will never forget. Thank you, brother Caloy.)
Alde starred in numerous films including “Mr. Suave” (2003), “Mang Kepweng: Ang Lihim ng Bandanang Itim” (2020) and the ABS-CBN TV series “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.” JB
