It’s not hard to believe that the “Unkabogable Star” Vice Ganda is a very hard-working and dedicated talent in the showbiz industry. It’s undeniable that the “Phenomenal Box-Office Star” never fails to entertain a multitude of viewers whether on the small screen or the big screen. With his unforgettable punchlines and comedic anecdotes, Vice is always one to look out for and his fans are always eager to see what he’ll be doing next.
However, the 42-year-old pop culture icon recently made a shocking announcement during an episode of “It’s Showtime” particularly the “Tawag Ng Tanghalan” segment. Vice Ganda declared that he will retire next year.
But don’t panic just yet – there’s more to this announcement than what you were led to believe!
Here is what he said:
“Next year mari-retire na ako kasi bubuhayin na ko ng anak (referring to Ryan Bang) ko. Pagpahingain mo na nanay mo kasi napapagod na.”
Although he just meant it as a joke, there’s no denying that this could happen anytime. It can be recalled that the male comedian suffered from excruciating abdominal pain due to kidney stones last February this year. He was immediately confined and forced to undergo an operation as a result of this condition.
He described this traumatic experience upon his return to the “It’s Showtime” stage, after the recovery stage.
“Akala ko talaga mamamatayna ako. Tapos sabi ko kailangan kong isigaw at hindi nila ako maririnig, tapos sumigaw ako. Nasa sahig na ako, tapos namanhid ang katawan ko.
“Sabi ko: Dalhin niyo ako sa ospital, hindi ko na kaya. As in ang sakit-sakit sobra. Pinakamasakit na naramdaman ko sa buong buhay ko.”
This only proves that Vice Ganda is simply human and that making people laugh can take it’s toll on a person’s own health. In a sense, even the brightest showbiz star needs to dim their light once in a while.
For now, it seems that Vice will continue to bring smiles and laughter to his fans. We can only support whatever decisions he makes – in and out of showbiz.
