My Review: (also in goodreads)

I have always been a fan of Michael V. He is one of the pillars of Philippines' longest running gag show "Bubble Gang". His humor of my taste and I love how he good of a cameleon he is formulating all those amazing characters with distinct personalities. And having the gag show run for 20 years now is no joke. This showcases Filipino humor and for that I really enjoyed this book.

Till the next read...
