Betong, Arny Ross and Nar Cabico

The longest running and multi-awarded comedy-gag show of GMA Network "Buble Gang" will be celebrating their 20th year in the industry. For 20 years, they have started a lot of comedy trends making a lot of Filipino viewers forget about their problems and struggles in life and just laugh it all away.

We got the chance to interview Betong and Arny Ross who are also part of Bubble Gang.
Betong have been part of Bubble Gang for 5 years now, after winning Survivor Philippines Edition, Betong said he feels grateful that he became part of Bubble Gang, there was even a part of his life where he was reminiscing the days that he was watching Bubble Gang as a viewer and now, he is part of Bubble Gang. Betong added that working with Ogie Alcasid and Michael V. gave him a lot of insights about comedy and he really learned a lot. He said that at the time he first started at Bubble Gang, he was welcomed with open arms. He was all praises to Michael V. because he is very professional and passionate in his craft. 

Betong said his most memorable and remarkable role is Antoinietta. He was nominated and got the chance to travel outside the country because of this role and many people know him as Antonietta. The role allows him to share scenes with more veterans like Chanda Romero, Roi Vinzon, Jaclyn Jose, and Celia Rodriguez. “I get to work with (them) and parang oh my, napapanood mo lang sila eh. Mga bigatin (sila, so) parang naku po, ang dami ko pang kanin na kakainin para maabot yung estado nila,” he humbly said. He added that he doesn't mind being slapped by this award winning actors simply because it's also a privilege to work with them, not many got the chance to do so. 

Instead of being intimidated with them, he always tells himself that he needs to do good every other episode because many people are looking forward to watch this role.
