Whether it is the banter of the hosts from the afternoon variety program It’s Showtime or the sketches on gag shows like Banana Sundae and the defunct Goin’ Bulilit, the Kapamilya networks knows exactly how to tickle its viewers. In fact, ABS-CBN has been spreading good vibes as early as the 80s! Here are some of the best comedy shows that dominated television screens through the years.
Nova Villa and Freddie Webb were arguably one of the funniest tandems during its time. The married couple of “Chika Chika Chicks” was sweet and almost ideal. But throw in a bunch of sexy models into their lives and you just do not know what to expect.
Before Goin’ Bulilit and Banana Sundae, there was Goin’ Bananas. This 80s hit starred Christopher de Leon, Edgar Mortiz, Jay Ilagan, and Al Tantay. Their wacky group never failed to put a smile on fans’ faces with their hilarious sketches.
When talking about the funniest shows that ever aired, how can we not include Home Along Da Riles? This series, which ran from 1992 to 2003, easily became iconic and is even a favorite among the many works of Dolphy. The King of Comedy was joined by Nova Villa, Babalu, and others.
Oki Doki Doc is another unforgettable program that cheered up viewers for years. After all, laughter is the best medicine. Led by Aga Muhlach, who portrayed a veterinarian, the sitcom revolved around Dr. Aga’s adventures with animals as well as his niece and nephew.
And then there’s Palibhasa Lalake. The antics of Richard Gomez, Joey Marquez, and John Estrada will go down in history as one of the comedy series that offered unlimited laughs for over a decade.
Which one of these is your favorite? Is there a show that you want to add?
