Perhaps no other show like Eat Bulaga could bring the same level of excitement and anticipation that was felt by the multitude of fans that came to its much-awaited presentation at the Excel London last November 17.
Organized by GMA International, OSN and TAPE, Inc., the show was a fitting response to the incessant requests of Filipinos living in Europe to witness the Philippines’ longest-running, most successful and most influential noon time show live.
Just as thousands of Filipinos trooped to the Eat Bulaga show in Singapore last year and in San Francisco earlier this year, almost 6,000 people in London were treated to an unforgettable entertainment experience that the show is known for.
The Dabarkads composed of Joey de Leon, Jimmy Santos, Anjo Yllana, Allan K, Keempee de Leon, Ruby Rodriguez, Julia Clarete, Pauleen Luna, Ryan Agoncillo, Paolo Ballesteros, Philip Lazaro, Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola came prepared with their funny jokes and thrilling numbers that kept the audience grinning from eat to ear all throughout the show. Judy Ann Santos also appeared as a special guest to the delight of the audience.
The Eat Bulaga show opened with a James Bond-inspired number by long-time EB host Jimmy Santos together with the EB Babes, while husband and wife Ryan Agoncilio and Judy Ann Santos later sang a duet. The event was also highlighted by Jose & Wally’s funny take on “Anak”; Allan K’s Miss Universe monologue; the widely popular Pinoy Henyo and Cha-charap dance contest, which was also participated by some members of the audience.
Philip Lazaro hosted the pre-event show, where winners were drawn to win special prizes from GMA International and OSN. It was also during this part where the Vice Consul in London, Myla Macahilic and GMA International Vice President and Head of Operations Joseph Francia welcomed the audience and thanked them for the overwhelming turnout.
As it continues to occupy that permanent place in the hearts of Kapuso viewers all over, Eat Bulaga will also continue to bring isang libo’t isang tuwa to many other cities and countries.
