Vice Ganda, or Jose Marie Borja Viceral in real life, is a Pinoy actor, comedian, singer, TV presenter, talk show host, and product endorser. He was born on March 31, 1976 in Tondo, Manila, Philippines. Vice is the youngest of five children, who all spent their childhood days along José Abád Santos Street in Manuguit, Tondo, Manila. When he was young, his father, a barangay captain in Tondo, was murdered, prompting his mother to work abroad to feed her children. When he was a bit older, Vice got a job as a singer, and eventually as a comedian for Punchline and The Library. Subsequently, he appeared in various TV shows and worked alongside showbiz comedians Chokoleit, Rey Kilay Pooh, and John Lapus. Soon, he was discovered by ABS-CBN and became a regular host on the noontime show, It’s Showtime. He also starred in various films, eight of them considered to be among the highest grossing in Philippine movies.
Two days ago, before the sudden demise of President Aquino, Vice was discussing about his being a shopaholic. At the time, he said that while his shopping habits have somehow reduced, he still shops for things that make him happy. The comedian said that he has not been spending on anything else, so he would purchase the little things that make him happy. “Di ko pa naman siya ikinahihirap... I will never be poor again. I try to be very smart when spending.”
About a week ago, Vice praised a delivery rider who was victimized with a fake booking. The comedian learned that when he took to social media, help poured in that it reached the tune of P60,000. The rider shared 10 sacks of rice to his neighborhood, giving food to many more people. The Showtime host was not able to stop himself in comparing the lowly ordinary guy who was able to share versus rich politicians.
