THE COMIC relief in everyday’s “Sana Dalawa ang Puso” at the Kapamilya lot is blessed with a Bayani Agbayani as Richard Yap’s (as Martin Co) driver/sidekick.
Interviewed at “Sakto” of Amy Perez and Marc Logan, Bayani shares his other side as a husband and father.
A father who constantly tells each of his kid (the eldest being 21 now) that they are his favorite.
And as far as being a Dad who has a daughter who is very intelligent, allows her already to make decisions on her own.
“Kami, to guide her sa finances and suporta. Pero gaya sa manliligaw, nasa edad na siya. One time, sinabi niya na may bago na siyang manliligaw. Nawala na raw ‘yung una niyang boyfriend. Sabi ko salamat po. Eh, meron na pala uli. Kapatid ni Bea Alonzo. Na ang gusto naman makilala muna kaming mga magulang. Sabi ko lang i-enjoy din muna nila ang pagiging single kasi masarap naman ‘yun.”
As far as Lenlen his wife is concerned, Bayani said that they enjoy doing things together except basketball.
“Golf. Calisthenics. We like kung ano mga dislikes namin.”
And with his kids?
“Hindi ko magawa na hindi gawin ang nakasanayan ko na paghahatid sa kanila sa school. Kahit galing ako ng taping at sasabihin ko kay Lenlen na siya na muna maghatid, ‘di ko maatim na hindi ako.”
Making people laugh is an art. But there are those who are blessed to have it innate for those natural not just to make people laugh but get them into a “halakhak” mode.
“Sa sarili ko natatawa pa rin ako. Kaya sa pamilya kapag silang lahat natatawa pa rin sa akin ibig sabihin, kaya ko pa magpatawa sa madla.”
Handling personal problems is a feat.
“Prayers lang. Kasi ang problema hindi naman nawawala ‘yan. Harapin mo lang tapos tuloy ka lang.”
Just like clown, comedians show a different face in the crowd. They can conceal the real them in front of people. Laughing on the outside. Crying on the inside. Tahimik lang nga raw when not acting at nasa isang tabi.
Gaya ng sabi ni Tyang Amy, pag trabaho na talagang go go go naman.
His Bayani’s anecdote with the King of Comedy.
“Sabi ni Aga (Muhlach) sa akin, kausapin ko raw. Eh, bago lang ako nun. Kaya ang tinanong ko kung nag-marijuana ba siya. Oo raw. Eh, ang daming addict noon. So, nagsimula na kaming mag-usap. Tanong ako bakit ang dami ho nagmamasahe sa inyo. Kailangan niyo po ba ‘yan? Hindi raw. Sila ang may kailangan.”
Though Bayani has encountered some twists and turns in life, he looks at the tweaks that came in the guise of blessings.
More shows and movies are in store for the funnyman.
Who has earned his respect in the industry as time went on!
AN oldtimer as far as being a comedian is concerned is Dinky Doo. Son of an ace comedian during his time, the senior.
After his bout with the “bawal na gamot,” the illegal drug, Dinky learned to mend his path. And it is through directing movies that he saw the way to share his advocacies in the prevention of drugs among the youth.
After his “DAD” (Durugin ang Droga), he started shooting “My Dad, I Hate Drugs” where he stars a leading lady in the person of Claire Ruiz.
“May mga hugot sa buhay si Don Dado. May hindi makasundong anak. May nurse who keeps him company. Na ‘di niya alam eh, may misyon pala kaya pumasok sa buhay niya. May funny sidekick. Mayaman na may mga hindi alam sa mga nangyayari sa paligid niya.”
Doing advocacy movies especially related to saying no to drugs is already part of his life.
“Nage-enjoy pa rin ako sa paggawa nito kasi nakakasama ko ang mga kaibigan natin sa industriya. Nakakasama mo ang production people na ang iba, matagal din walang trabaho. Fun talaga. Kaya ang mga nauna naming nakunan na scenes are those na kikiliti na agad sa isip ng manonood. Eh, poolside na agad kami ni Claire. Nag-kiss ba kami o hindi. The shoot went on smoothly naman. So, mahaba-haba pang mga araw ang bubunuin namin to finish the movie.”
With Don Dado in the movie are stellar roles also for Tori Garcia, Alysse Montenegro, Tala Vera, Renan Morales, Rey ‘PJ’ Abellana, Lito Camo and more.
Another comic relief to watch out for.
