Filipinos love a good laugh and this is why comedians are doing so well in the entertainment business. Everyone knows the names of Vice Ganda, Pokwang, Joey de Leon, Super Tekla, and Pooh. But to our surprise, there are still some people out there who are totally clueless about the comedy scene in the Philippines.
We all know that Pooh is a famous local celebrity whose humor allowed him to score numerous television shows and films. He becomes incredibly funnier when paired with his best friends who are also famous comedians.
Recently, the Kapamilya star shared on Twitter a different and awkward experience he had with an UBER driver. The comedian booked a ride with the ride sharing application and as many of us are aware of, some drivers are quite friendly and are totally game with starting a conversation with their passengers.
Pooh apparently had a driver like this and the resulting dialogue between them was so hilarious and cringe-worthy that it deserved to go viral on Twitter. His pick-up point was Max’s Restaurant and as soon as he got in the car, the conversation started.
The driver emphatically said that it was hard to earn a living nowadays. Probably being in the same situation before, Pooh agreed and encouraged the driver to always work hard. But the man’s next response was something he couldn’t believe.
“Matagal na kayong waiter diyan?“
The only reaction that this funny question got from Pooh was a whistle. Fortunately, this wasn’t the only update about encounter that the celebrity posted. When the ride was about to end, the driver looked at the rear view mirror of the car and gasped. Did he finally notice who was riding his car?
Well, almost. The UBER driver apologized for not recognizing him earlier and for also thinking that he was a waiter. As soon as the artist brushed it off, the driver once again dug a deeper hole for himself. He said that it was sad that John Lloyd Cruz wasn’t on their show anymore because he was under the impression that his passenger was comedian Kuya Jobert.
The famous comedian simply gave the fare and left.
