I never laughed this hard ever during a live stand up comedy session, seriously. Well It was a Saturday night, me and my gal pals had nothing to do. Then an invite for Wazzup Pilipinas, was an opportunity to be able to witness an English stand up comedy session with the sense of Filipino humor from the best stand up comedians in the country, who are part of the #ComedyCartelPH.
To be honest, English humor doesn’t really get to me quick but hell yeah how they delivered their spiels really got my attention. There was never a dull moment listening to them. My girls and I laughed so much because the jokes are really what we call, “Yeah we’ve been there kinda situation”, meaning that the spiels are relatable to the things that happens nowadays.
Mike Unson (@mikeunson) , have been in the stand up comedy biz for years and he is really passionate about it ever since. And he is celebrating his anniversary! He already made a name in stand up comedy and he is really funny guys! He really cracked me up with his spiels on “#CANDY’SROADTOFITNESS” (My girls and I can’t really forget about it). I guess you guys better catch him up with one of his show for you to get what I’m saying. We got the chance to meet him personally, he was accommodating and very down to earth fella.
I asked some stuff about him, what It feels like to be in the industry that long, how is the competition nowadays, we know a lot of stand up comedians getting popular nowadays- really tough competition out there. ( Making people laugh is a gift and talent, I say.) His source of inspiration and ritual she usually do before a show. His words of inspiration to those who plans to go with same path, he is in.
He had acts before him, You might know Ruther Urquia (@rutherurquia), Finalist from “Pilipinas Got Talent”. His antics about his shopping ventures with his wife really have a marked on me and his other spiels and jokes were funny, wished he performed longer because I find him very entertaining. Then be amaze with magic tricks of Marcelle Fabie (@kelfabie) and his “hugots” on love. He demonstrated a magic trick which he sampled on a couple, they had to chain him up and amazingly he escapes the chains and get locked up again.
I swear, it is nice to go to shows like this with a group of friends and just laugh once in a while and have some fun. Get away from reality a bit. It was worth coming, My girls and I need some R &R from time to time with the pressure with that thing called “life”. This kind of comedy doesn’t like insult people and it genuine in delivery , its like story telling of certain based inspired characters which you eventually can relate to and you can imagine how funny it really is. You can catch them up with their series of shows, just check out the hashtags #ComedyCartelPH and check @comedycartel instagram page and facebook for updates. You’ll never regret it, I swear.
