Vice Ganda expressed gratitude to the staff of “It’s Showtime” by surprising them with a P300,000 Christmas bonus, in time with the noontime show’s 13th anniversary.

The TV host-comedian addressed the staff behind the show after his “Magkasikat” performance with co-host Amy Perez during the show’s episode yesterday, Nov. 17, as seen on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s YouTube channel.


“Sobrang mahal na mahal ko ‘tong mga ‘to. Alam mo, sobrang simple lang ng mga staff na ‘yan,” Vice Ganda said. (I love them so much. You know, the staff are just so simple.)


The Kapamilya star then apologized for his shortcomings and any misunderstandings he had with staff members, noting that these misunderstandings “all come from a place of love.”

“Napakalaki ng ginagawa niyo para sa programang ito. I would personally like to apologize kung meron tayong minsan hindi pagkakaunawaan,” he told them. “Lahat ‘yun nangyayari lang dahil pinipilit nating gampanan ang ating mga obligasyon para sa programa, sa audience natin, sa network. Lahat naman ng iyon, all coming from love. Hindi maiiwasan iyon sa isang pamilya.”

(You are doing so much for this show. I would personally like to apologize for any misunderstandings we have at times. All of those happen because we try to fulfill our obligations to the program, our audience [and] the network. All of those, all coming from love. That cannot be avoided in a family.)

Vice Ganda then asked for a head count of all crew members of “It’s Showtime,” then pledged P300,000 for the 300 workers.

“Mamaya, P300,000 para sa inyo, pang-Christmas bonus (Later, P300,000 for you, as Christmas bonus)!” he said.

He also offered 10 wheelchairs to any members of the audience, as their “Magpasikat” production number honored workers and people with disabilities.


This is not the first time Vice Ganda showed generosity to the staff and crew of “It’s Showtime.” Back in May, he gave away P5,000 each to around 100 members of the team behind the show, telling them it was an “early Christmas gift.”  /ra
