Ang Tatay Mong KALBO!!!

It's amazing to think now that
Pugo used to be THE ONLY skinhead
in Pinoy Cinema and TV.

And there are no more "Bondying"
characters to be found;
Bentot's heirs are now all "Bading".

I miss the old-school comedians;
although their physical imperfections
were the basis for their popularity,
it wasn't at all nasty.

There was always an underlying sweetness
and a strong sense of family in their humor.

These days,
so-called Pinoy Comedy is all about
Willie Revillame's lewdness
and Joey de Leon's crassness.

In other words, total crapfests.

Let's bring back those comedians
who didn't need a last name to make
a lasting impression.

To Pugo, Bentot, Chichay, Palito,
Babalu, Panchito, and yes, Dolphy,
thanks for all the laughs in Black & White!

great post! I forget when was the last time I really laughed not at anyone but with the situation...and that was watching those movies with Pugo, Bentot, Sylvia laTorre...the early Dolphy and Panchito movies. Sana may restrospect of these movies to show the Golden Age of Pinoy Comedy.
