After establishing himself with high-rating TV shows, sold-out concerts, and record-breaking movies, Vice Ganda has once again added another milestone in his career after setting the record for biggest book launch by a Filipino celebrity author last July 15.
Vice had a grand meet-and-greet event and book launch of his debut book titled , “President Vice: Ang Bagong Panggulo ng Pilipinas” under ABS-CBN Publishing Inc. in the Skydome, SM City North Edsa, which was attended by thousands of fans of the “It’s Showtime” and “Gandang Gabi Vice” host.
Vice Ganda gives his answers on how to solve the country’s problems- from new traffic management rules to mandates on cheating beaus.
He said the book was partly inspired by current Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte and his message of change. It is a wacky look into a world where Vice Ganda becomes the next president of the country.
"Ang librong ito ay pang pa-good vibes lang. It has nothing do with the government. Para lang ito sa katuwaan ng lahat," he said.
Readers can find Vice Ganda’s fictional cabinet members, his new national bird, and his punishment for cheaters. The book is jam-packed with Vice Ganda’s straightforward solutions that are hilariously witty.
Also included in "President Vice" is his SONA, part of which was also performed during the book launch. The audience in the Skydome was laughing their lungs out as Vice delivered punchline after punchline during his State of the Nation Address. Joining him in the event were comedians Pooh, MC and Lassy, DJ Jai Ho of MOR 101.9, and Ryan Bang.
Published by ABS-CBN Publishing, "President Vice" is the latest addition in ABS-CBN Publishing, Inc’s successful line of bestselling consumer books. Vice Ganda joins an elite roster of API authors which include Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago, Alex Gonzaga, Georgina Wilson, Solenn Heussaff, and Ramon Bautista.
The book is exclusively available in all National Book Store outlets nationwide for only 175 pesos.
