Jak Roberto feels grateful to be part of the longest-running gag show Bubble Gang.
The former Walang Tulugan talent said the show helped him improve his skills in comedy.
“Ang laking bagay po,” said the 22-year-old Kapuso hunk in an interview after the press conference of Bubble Gang held recently.
“Alam naman po natin na gags yung maraming nanonood sa comedy shows.
“Dahil po doon, parang na-challenge po ako na kailangan ko pong galingan kasi mahirap po talaga ang mag-comedy kaysa mag-drama sa isang soap.
“Partly nga po, nanghihingi po ako ng advice sa mga nauna po like kina Kuya Bitoy [Michael V], Direk Cosme [Cesar Cosme]...”
Jak became even more popular when he was introduced as “Daks the Machong Bodyguard” in Bubble Gang's “Pool Senorita” skit.
Since then, Jak has always been tapped to do roles that require him to be topless, earning for him the tag “Abs ng Bayan.”
Asked if he can already go head-to-head with other Bubble Gang members when it comes to cracking jokes, Jak smiled and said, “Naku, marami pa po akong kakaining bigas bago ko marating ang mga nagawa na nina Kuya Bitoy at saka ng mga batikan as comedian.”
Nevertheless, he said, “Siguro po, ang masasabi ko lang po is I'm happy and I'm blessed na parang nabigyan po ako ng chance sa comedy since ang madalas ko pong gawin ay soap at hosting.
“Ngayon po, feeling ko sobrang blessed ko na parang kahit sa comedy ay napasok ko na rin po para ma-practice ko ang versatility ko.”
