TV Host not incline on MTRCB’s proposed Comedy Academy

Popular TV Host Luis Manzano isn’t keen on the Movie Television Review and Classification Board’s appeal to TV networks to put up their own Comedy Academy.

MTRCB Chairman Toto Villareal made the proposal after the “rape” joke of Vice Ganda against veteran journalist Jessica Soho during his recent concert at the Big Dome.

Manzano pointed out that you can’t teach on how a joke can be effective and or how you can deliver a punch line.

The TV Host added that it’s in a person’s innate nature to be funny and being able to get the proper timing in delivering a joke, which is the case of Vice Ganda.

Manzano came into Vice Ganda’s defense by saying that the comedian may have committed a mistake once but you can’t deny that his talent.

A lot of artists have expressed their opposition regarding the MTRCB’s proposal, including Giselle Sanchez and Anne Curtis.

However, the MTRCB is bent on pursuing the said proposition.   (Judie Anne Abejero)
