- Vice Ganda admitted that he got burnt out hosting the ABS-CBN program “It’s Showtime”
- The show host took some time off because the Php 5,000 salary per day was not worth it
- The comedian’s co-host Anne Curtis is one of the main reasons why he came back to the show
In an interview during the 10th year anniversary celebration of ABS-CBN’s noontime program- It’s Showtime, Vice Ganda, one of the hosts, guiltily admitted that for some time he was burnt out and almost left the show.
"Ito 'yung mga panahon na araw-araw sample, araw-araw required ako mag-isip nang may nagtext naubos ako. Feeling ko talaga, naubos ako kasi hindi ako sanay sa showbiz, parang nabigla ako sa bilis nang pagbabago sa buhay ko na hindi ko nasabayan."
The comedian further confessed that he cannot see his purpose in being a regular in the program because it took all of his time with just a Php 5,000 salary per day. According to him, it came to a point that he felt tired and that it was just not worth it.
"That time, hindi ko nakikita ang purpose nang pag-so-Showtime ko, akala ko raket ko lang ang 'Showtime' and may kita. That time Php 5,000 a day ang sweldo ko, so wala kang personal assistant, wala kang make-up artist, wala kang hair stylist, ako lahat. Wala kang stylist, damit, hindi naman uso ang stylist. So sabi ko 'parang it’s not worth it. Php 5,000 a day parang luge ako.”

When he felt that he somewhat lost the ability to be a comedian and make the audience laugh due to stress, he took a break and did other things like guesting in comedy bars and concert abroad. But still, the management convinced him to not completely resign.
After taking some time off, he missed being in the show and one of the reasons is because of her co-host Anne Curtis.
"Na miss ko ang 'Showtime, na miss ko si Anne, si Anne talaga. Noong umiyak ako sabi ko 'Nasanay na ako na nakikita ko na si Anne Curtis' parang ayoko nang hindi ko kasama si Anne Curtis, si Anne ang malaking rason noon kung bakit ko gusto bumalik ng 'Showtime.'"
