It’s Showtime consists of talents who show their wares on cam and those who work to make the show perfect from behind the scenes. Sometimes these production staffers are pulled into the spotlight and are asked to join in the fun.
Such is the show’s audience coordinator and production staffer Ervin “Dumbo” Plaza, who has since evolved into a rollicking funnyman himself.
In fact, Dumbo has his own funniest moments on screen with the show’s mainstay hosts. One of those is his Cash-Ya Challenge with Team Boys which includes Vice Ganda, Zeus Collins, Jugs Jugueta and Vhong Navarro. It was one of the most unbelievable Cash-Ya moments wherein all five of them had to squat while they lay in each other’s legs.
Dumbo has been part of the show since it began in 2009. Aside from working behind the camera, Dumbo stands as the resident teddy bear of the It’s Showtime family. And like how precious a teddy bear is to a child, Dumbo is treasured in the noontime show and here are some snaps which can prove just that!
Celebrating his years of service in the show through the years, Dumbo posted a sweet message on his Instagram account which spoke about how important the show is to him. Some bits of his caption is: “Eto ang programang malaki ang idinulot sa buhay ko, sobrang laki mas malaki pa kaysa sa akin…”
Dumbo loves the It’s Showtime family and they love him so much in return indeed!
