FILIPINOS WHO LOVE to laugh has something to look forward to every weekend starting May 28 as GMA Network airs the newest comedy game show ‘Laff, Camera, Action!’
Following the phenomenal success of Celebrity Bluff and Picture! Picture!, get ready to laugh out loud every Saturday afternoon with this show featuring Betong Sumaya and Sheena Halili.
GMA said in a press statement handed to ElysPlanet.com, this weekly improvisational program showcases unscripted and unrehearsed performances from two groups of three performers each featuring comedic talents from television, stage, comedy bars, and even schools and universities. The show will test the performers’ skills in improvisational comedy, creating scenes, and characters on the spot based on given scenarios.
Betong said he is very grateful to GMA for entrusting him this show. “Natutuwa ako na pinagkatiwalaan ako ng GMA for this project. Sobra akong na-o-overwhelm and at the same time sobrang thankful. Siguradong matutuwa ang Kapuso viewers sa bagong programang ito na handog ng GMA,” he said.
For Halili, this is her very first hosting stint and she is happy to offer something new to her fans and supporters. “Na-excite ako and also, na-challenge rito sa panibagong project na binigay ng GMA sa akin. I’ve been in showbiz for more than a decade now and very thankful ako talaga. It’s my first hosting job. I can truly say that my showbiz career has blossomed in this network through the various roles that I have portrayed,” the actress said.
Laff, Camera, Action! is made up of three exciting rounds: In Round 1, the two teams will interpret two different scenarios and each group must be creative in using the limited number of props on the set. The competition heats up in Round 2 as a special guest performer joins each team in acting out two different scenarios. No props will be provided. The third and final round will be the ultimate test of creativity and improvisational comedy as both teams will perform the same exact scenario using the same set of props on the set. The winners will receive cash, trophies, and other special prizes. To determine the winning team, a panel of three judges will evaluate and score the performances. These include veteran comedy writer and director Caesar Cosme, comedienne and live performer Gladys Guevarra and ace comedian Sef Cadayona. Under the helm of Philip Lazaro, Laff, Camera, Action! begins May 28 every Saturday afternoon after Imbestigador on GMA.
