"Ako ang may gustong lumabas. Sa akin kasi, sabi ko, sanay na ako sa pangmatagalan na show. Kaya sabi ko, kailangan may bago kung babalik ako," explains Joey de Leon about the newly added segment of Wow Mali!, which requires him to go out and interview people.


For those who missed the original and long-running gag show Wow Mali!, watch for its comeback this Sunday, February 22, on TV5.

On its comeback after two years of being off the air, master prankster Joey de Leon will be introducing a new segment aside from classic jokes and bloopers. "Nadagdagan siya ng portions, kasi dati puro good time lang. Ngayon, may parlor games," narrated the veteran comedian.

Aside from conducting parlor games, host Wow Mali! will travel around Metro Manila to conduct the hilarious segment called "‘Wow Mare, Wow Pare, Ang Sarap Magdebate."

Joey explained, "Bukod sa mga dati, mayroon kaming ilalagay na parang parlor games. Dati hindi ako lumalabas, e. Ngayon, lumalabas ako, pumupunta ako sa mga beauty parlor, nagko-contest ako sa mga bading. 'Yon, riot 'yon! Ano talaga, Q&A at saka mga idea nila sa mga bagay-bagay, pinagdedebate ko.

"Malawak ang ginawa ko pero comical tulad ng ‘Paano kung papalitan ang pangalan ng Pilipinas? Kung papalitan mo ang design ng bandila ng Pilipinas, ano ang design? Kung mare-reincarnate ka ulit, kaninong katawang artista ang gusto mong pasukan?' Mayroon mga questions nakakatuwa."

With this new segment, it's not surprising that the funnyman actually participated in conceptualizing this new addition to Wow Mali!

"Ako lahat, lagi kasali ako [sa conceptualization]," said Joey. "Hindi ko sinusukat, pero lagi akong kasali. Noong araw, hindi ako sumasali diyan, ini-introduce ko lang yung good time sa labas, mga footages sa labas. Kunwari, nag-[shoot] sila sa labas, ini-intro ko lang. Ngayon, may portion ako talaga na ako 'yong lumalabas. May participation ako ngayon."

Aside from these parlor games, Wow Mali! will still feature its traditional candid camera set-up not only in Manila but also in other provinces such as Laoag, Vigan, Baguio, Pampanga, Bicol, and Quezon Province.

The show also features classic celebrity pranks, with Midnight DJ star Oyoboy Sotto as the first celebrity victim.

Catch the pilot episode of this all-new Wow Mali! on Sunday, 6:00 p.m. on TV5.
