Vice Ganda shared about the pressure that he and the rest of the “It’s Showtime” hosts are taking following the changes of ABS-CBN’s platform last year.
On Saturday, “It’s Showtime” had a digital conference and the TV host expressed the difference between now and then in how they entertain their audience.
According to Vice, there have been a lot of adjustments since the Kapamilya network has changed platforms, from free TV to digital space and cable TV, and now back to free TV.
For instance, the comedian admitted that he has to be more careful now on how he throws his jokes and punchlines.
“Kailangan (masabayan) mo ‘yung change ng change, evolve ng evolve ‘yung platform. Kasi, biglang from free TV, bigla kami naging cable, naiba na ‘yung audience ng cable.
“So ako, kailangan kong aralin, ano ‘yung sensibilities ng mga cable viewers. Iba siya sa free TV, tas’ biglang naging digital, so ano ‘yung humor sa digital.
“Ano ang humor sa digital, paano tinatanggap ng digital ang palabas? Ano ba ang klase ang gusto nilang pinapanood?” Vice explained.
For this reason, Vice said that he is challenging himself to learn again.
“Pero noong nagkaroon ng ganitong sitwasyon, kailangan ko mag-aral ulit.
“Kailangan kong pag-aralan ang audience ko, kailangan kong alamin ang atake kung ano ang puwedeng mga jokes lang, hanggang saan lang ba, ‘yung ganun.”
He also mentioned the need for the hosts to be sensitive to the emotions of the viewers, considering the current pandemic, which is causing hardships to many Filipinos.
“‘Maraming bagay ang ginagawa namin sa ‘Showtime’.. kung paano namin, hinahandle ang show ‘yung segments, ‘yung contestants, hindi namin puwede gawin ngayon, kasi you have to consider the pandemic, emotions ng maraming tao, ‘yung estado ng maraming tao, parang dati parang ano kami, all out tawanan wala kaming pakialam sa mundo,
“Pero ngayon, you have to be sensitive, hindi puwedeng laging masaya, kasi hindi ganun ang emotions ng mga tao.” said the TV host.
Vice Ganda is one of the main hosts of the noontime variety show “It’s Showtime”. He is also a comedy actor and a performer.
In a previous report by KAMI, Vice reacted about a person or persons who left the “It’s Showtime” family. He may not have dropped names, but netizens could guess some of those he was trying to mention. One could be Billy Crawford, whom Vice even mentioned in a hilarious comment about the hashtag “Solid Showtimer Ako.”
