‘Collab please!’: Netizens and showbiz personalities react to Vice Ganda and Michael V in one frame


Many fans and showbiz personalities were thrilled after seeing their favorite comedians in one frame.

On Saturday, August 19, 2023, Vice Ganda uploaded a photo of him and Michael V. together on his verified Instagram account.

The image was taken inside the studio of the noontime show It’s Showtime during Bitoy’s surprise appearance together with Pepito Manaloto co-star Manilyn Reynes, in the show to celebrate the birthday of singer and host Ogie Alcasid.

Bitoy and Ogie are widely known to pair together in comedic skits in GMA’s gag show Bubble Gang before the latter moved to ABS-CBN in 2017.

Vice simply wrote “ICON” in the caption which fans and showbiz personalities couldn’t agree more on the well-deserved title for the two.

Among the celebrities who commented were fellow comedienne Rufa Mae Quinto, Ryan Bang, Ruru Madrid, and Bianca Gonzalez while Vice’s co-host Vhong Navarro, Ruffa Gutierrez, and Francine Diaz were among the thousands of people who left likes.

“LEGENDS ???,” GMA’s subsidiary channel GTV commented.

“BOTH ICONS❤️,” celebrity make-up artist Peter Paul Laguisma said.

“Parehong iconic in the Philippine industry meme Vice and Sir Michael v.❤️” a netizen commented.

Online users also expressed their delight over seeing the “comedy geniuses” together, even pushing the possibility of a collaboration of the two in a movie.

“My Childhoooood ? Comedians,” a fan commented.

“Unkabogable Star meets Comedy genius! Pwede tong entry sa MMFF! ?? ,” a netizen wrote.

“Comedy Geniuses! Waiting na sa collab niyo ??,” said another.

The possibility of the two working together in a movie is not far from being true as both have expressed mutual admiration and respect for each other.

It can be recalled that Michael V. has previously said that he wanted Vice to guest in Bubble Gang and possibly play a skit together with one of his famous gag characters, Mr. Assimo.
