This Friday, December 21, marks the very special offering of the King of Comedy for ABS-CBN's drama anthology show Maalaala Mo Kaya.
The special Christmas episode of MMK showcases Dolphy at his dramatic best, reminiscent of his roles in the movies Markova and Tatay Kong Nanay where he starred with Niño Muhlach, the child superstar of his time. This episode of MMK now features him with the child wonder of today's generation, Makisig Morales.
"Wow! Sobrang happy talaga ako kasi mabigyan ba ako ng pagkakataon na makatrabaho ang King of Comedy. Suwerte ko po talaga kasi na bata pa lang po ako makakatrabaho ko po si Mang Dolphy. Salamat po, MMK!" says an overjoyed Makisig.
Episode director Jeffrey Jeturian has only high praises for the King of Comedy. "Magaling si Mang Dolphy, isa siyang tunay na henyo."
In the December 21 episode of MMK, Dolphy plays a former prison inmate who is freed after years of serving time in prison. Despite his newfound freedom, he still feels imprisoned as he tries desperately to catch up with lost time and the people he loves.
Dolphy says of his character: "Isang malaking karangalan sa akin ang maging bahagi ng produksyon ng MMK at makapag-alay ng Paskong regalo sa inyong lahat."
Maalaala Mo Kaya, hosted by Charo Santos-Concio, airs Friday nights on ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida.
