Comedian Bayani Agbayani returns to ABS-CBN to host a segment in the noontime show It’s Showtime.
The segment titled Funny One will debut on the said noontime show this Saturday, June 27.
During the June 23 episode of Umagang Kay Ganda, Bayani revealed that the segment will search for ABS-CBN’s new male comedian.
"Ito po yung reality search ng male comedian ng ABS-CBN.
“Kasi naisip po ng ABS-CBN, it's about time na magkaroon tayo ng susunod sa yapak nila Dolphy, Panchito, nila Palito.”
He admitted that he cried when he learned that he will join the Kapamilya noontime show.
“Unang-una, naiyak ako, niyakap ko ang asawa at mga anak ko.
“Sabi ko, ‘Talagang napakabait ng Diyos dahil kapag wala kang trabaho, e, binibigyan ka.’
“Maraming, maraming salamat po sa ABS-CBN at sa lahat ng mga boss at binuksan niyo na naman po ang pinto [ninyo] para sa akin.”
This will not be the first time that Bayani will be part of a noontime show. In 1993, he headlined GMA-7’s noontime show SST: Salo-Salo Together.
He then transferred to ABS-CBN to do comedy shows such as Super Laff-In and Kaya Ni Mister, Kaya Ni Misis.
He also hosted ABS-CBN’s noontime show Magandang Tanghali Bayan from 1998-2004.
In 2009, he went back to GMA Network to host Showtime’s rival (which was then in the 10:30 a.m. slot) Diz Iz It which ran for five months.
