"Parekoy" reunites comedy trio John Prats, Zanjoe Marudo and Jayson Gainza


"Mas naging kumportable kaming tatlo, masmaraming kaming mga input sa mga eksena. Hindi katulad dati, noong nag-uupisa kami sa Aalog-Alog aynagkakapaan pa kami," describes Zanjoe Marudo (middle) about his reunion with fellowactors John Prats (right) and Jayson Gainza (left) for comedyserye Parekoy.



Aalog-alog's comedy trio John Prats, Zanjoe Marudoand Jayson Gainza work together again to bring laughter to every householdevery afternoon, from Monday to Friday.


After months of waiting, the trio will finally be seen againon television through ABS-CBN's first comedyserye titled Parekoy.


In an interview during the press conference of the saidshow, Jayson explained the reason of the delay in airing of Parekoy's,which was announced during the first half of 2008.

"Natigil kami kasi nga may mga nakapila, ang dami, e. Di ba, may Utoy, The Wedding,Eva Fonda, Tayong Dalawa, 'tapos yung Pieta," he said.



Then, the former Pinoy Big Brother housemate added,"Schedule din kasi si [John] may ginagawang Tiny Tony, si Zanjoe TheWedding at saka Dyosa. Ako naman, Betty La Fea at saka Tripna Trip. 'Tapos si Direk Randy[Santiago], panay ang TFC [shows] niya."



Despite the long delay, the three actors waited patiently for this project because it's an opportunity for them to workwith each other again after Aalog-Alog (2006).


Zanjoe Marudo says that he misses doing asitcom especially now that he is often given more serious roles.

In a separate interview, the young actor related that howmuch he liked doing a comedy show. Hesaid, "Ito naman talaga ang pinakauna kong... Kumbaga, noong nag-artista ako, itona talaga ang una kong naging trabaho, 'yong makasama ko 'yong dalawa sa Aalog-Alog. So, binalik lang nila na magkakasama ulitkaming tatlo. Medyo sanay na ako saganitong klase ng istorya."


The former PBB celebrity housemate added, "Na-miss korin 'yong sitcom namin dati dahil natapos na. At saka masayang gumawa ng comedy, e, para mag-experiment. Masaya sa taping kahit na nakakapagod."

With their reunion for Parekoy, were there anychanges in their working relationship?

Zanjoe said, "Mas naging kumportable kaming tatlo, masmaraming kaming mga input sa mga eksena. Hindi katulad dati, noong nag-uupisa kami sa Aalog-Alog aynagkakapaan pa kami. Ngayon, kapag maybinigay sa aming eksena, minsan pinakikialaman na rin namin, nagpapasok na kaming mga magagandang jokes."

Meanwhile, John described that their characters in Parekoyhas become a little more serious than that of Aalog-Alog.

"Siguro ngayon, mas seryosong gago, 'yon ang term ni DirekRandy [Santiago]," John said smiling. "Sa Aalog-alog, para lang kaming naglalaro. This time, mas seryoso kaming nagpapatawa,mas wala kayong makikitang tumatawa kami every scene. Nakakatawa 'yong eksena pero mas seryoso naming ginagawa 'yongnakakatawang eksena.

"'Yon ang ginagawa naming approach doon sa show, which isbago and at the same time, hindi kami studio, so mas labas kami. And mas pressure kasi araw-araw nagpapatawakami."

Zanjoe also admitted that it's harder for them to do thecomedyserye Parekoy compared to their former sitcom. He explained, "Medyo kasi mas nasanay kami sa sitcom, e. Pero at least ngayon, mayroon na kamingkailangang sundan na flow, hindi lang basta-basta."


Despite this, the trio were glad to have given the chance togive entertainment to Pinoy televiewers more often.


In fact, Zanjoe noted in the end, "Maganda nga naaraw-araw na siya at saka after ng Wowowee. Kasi dati pinapalabas ang Aalog-Alog mga 11:00 p.m. na,patulog na ang mga tao."


Parekoy airs weekdays on ABS-CBN right after Wowowee.
