Edgy and No-Holds-Barred Comedy

Filipino audiences can now experience a brand new comedy through Hoy! Bibig mo. iflix subscribers can enjoy the Philippines’ edgiest comedy club in the comfort and convenience of their homes (or the bus, the train, the bathroom…basically, anywhere you can take your phone). I attended the launch last November 22 at Yes, Please and I can say that only the sharpest, most audacious comedians take to the stage with their hilarious, biting and quirky humor. I, along with the crowd roared with laughter at the jokes that are bold, near-the-knuckle and sometimes, downright rude. Well, it seems like the bottom line is – if it’s funny, it’s in. Alex Calleja, GB Labrador, Tim Tayag and Mike Unson join the incredibly talented showcase, tackling taboo subjects you’ve never seen them joke about before. Hoy! Bibig Mo is the next generation of Filipino comedy, featuring established acts alongside fresh, original talent, completely uncensored in a series of stand-up routines and riotous improvised games.
