"Eat Bulaga" is the Longest Running Show in the Philippines of All Time!
21 August 2015 | by AdrianValOlonanSee all my reviews

Oh my God! "Eat Bulaga" started in 1979. This 2015, the show is celebrating its 36th anniversary. This age makes the show the longest running one in the Philippines of all time. Rival networks try to compete against but nothing succeeds. Its producer TAPE, Inc. and its distributor GMA Network, Inc. should nourish and protect this gem of Philippine entertainment.

The show has a hell lot to show in the first place. They never seem to run out of ideas. Notable segments are "Little Miss Philippines", "Laban o Bawi", "Kontrapelo", "Itaktak Mo", "Mr. Pogi", and "Juan for All, All for Juan". They also popularized novelty songs, such as "Laban o Bawi", "Itaktak Mo", "Shembot", and "Jump, Jump, Jump, Brother", to name some of these. The show also engages in charity, as they give monobloc chairs made from plastic bottles and scholarship grants to intelligent students. "Eat Bulaga" takes brave steps in starting out "Super Sireyna Worldwide", a transwoman beauty pageant that involves contestants from all over the globe. They also introduce foreigners into the Filipino culture in "You're My Foreignoy" and "You're My Foreignay".

In celebrating their 36th birthday, they present the "kalyeserye", a telenovela which infuses melodrama, comedy, and impromptu and takes place in the streets during "Juan for All, All for Juan" segment. The "kalyserye" stars Alden Richards and Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza) as the star-crossed lovers. Jose Manalo plays Frankie Arinoli and Wally Bayola plays Donya Nidora respectively. Manalo and Bayola also play other characters which push their comedian skills to greater heights.

If "Eat Bulaga" celebrates its golden anniversary, I won't be surprised. They deserve it very well.
