Archie Alemania from Star Magic to Q11

ARCHIE ALEMANIA is with ABS-CBN Star Magic but he's now a mainstay in Q Channel 11's "I Laugh Sabado" that premieres tonight at 8:30. "My last comedy with them was 'George & Cecil' pa kaya nagpaalam ako to do 'I Laugh Sabado' and they agreed," he says.

How's his son with Mickey Ferriols? "He's now 5 years old at makulit na. In good terms naman kami ni Mickey so lagi ko siyang nakikita."

Appearing with Archie in "I Laugh Sabado" is Gee Canlas, a hiphop dancer who did 'Lokomoko High' with TV 5 and now has a show on Youtube, 'Say What', where she does Speedtalk. She demonstrated to us how she does it and she'll truly give Melay of PBB a run for her money when it comes to talking rapidly. All of the cast members were recruited from an audition, including Jan Manual, Alfred Marquez, Janna Roxas and Paolo Paraiso. "Even if we didn't really know each other well, maganda ang naging chemistry namin," says Gee.

How is it working with their show's director, Bibeth Orteza? "She's very pleasant. You'll feel at ease with her agad as she interacts with us very well. Being a former comedian herself, she brings out the best in each of us."

Wally Bayola is the lead comedian in "I Laugh Sabado". He's not with usual partner Jose Manalo in this show. What can he say now that Jose is back in "Eat Bulaga" after his court case? "I'm so happy kasi nagbalik na rin ang tandem namin even in singalong bars," he says. "Nandun pa rin ang chemistry namin at ang pagtanggap sa'min ng tao. Excited din siyang magtrabaho uli. Pareho kaming inspired sa trabaho."
