WALLY BAYOLA gets separated from Jose Manalo and Paolo Ballesteros, his usual partners in “Eat Bulaga”, and gets new ones in Buko Channel’s news comedy show, “Balita One Nan”: Alex Calleja and Kaladkaren. 

Wally will be known as Migs ‘Reaksyon Man’ Mamaril, who reacts to every news in a hilarious manner. 

Kaladkaren will be KaladKaren Dadilat, always updated with the news with her big eyes that never blink. Alex Calleja is Seph ‘Patola’ Balimbing, who always has an answer or opinion for every news report. 

“We feature mga balitang katatawanan done in the most ribtickling way,” Wally says. 

“We will start airing on March 21, Monday to Friday  at 830 PM. Very challenging for me ito kasi wala akong wig, wala akong heavy make up o false eyelashes, no filter talaga. 

"But this is a feel good show. Sa dami ng problema natin ngayon na tumataas ang gas, may giyera sa Ukraine, nagkakagulo sa election, we all need to de-stress and have a good laugh.”

How are they preparing for their pilot telecast?  

“Naku, puspusan ang paghahanda namin to make sure mapaganda ito, mapasaya but also maging makabuluhan ang buong show for the viewers,” says Kaladkaren. 

“May segment ako titled Karenspondence, spoof ng ‘The Correspondents’ noon na tumatalakay sa ibat ibang tao at issues sa ating buhay pero done in a fun way. 

"This is social satire and we make fun of the hard news, but with a feel good alternative making everything light  Sa set pa lang, sobrang saya na namin, so I hope it radiates para ma-feel ng audience ang saya ng programa.” 

The show is directed by comedian John Lapus who says they’re very careful in what they do. 

”There’s a thin line between being funny and being offensive so we try to be cautious as some people can be so sensitive,” he says. 

“We’re after positivity and good vibes to help detoxify watching hard news na kung minsan mabigat ang pakiramdam mo bago ka matulog.  We don’t do fake news but we make fun of the fake news.”

Direk John says the show will feature an ensemble of Mobile Jokers or “Mo Joks” which featuring seasoned comedians, stand-ups, improv artists, online celebrities and theater actors who will portray field reporters and impersonate celebrities and iconic news personalities. 

It will also showcase hilarious spoof segments of One News programs such as Juice Ko Lourd with Lourd DV and One-Ted with Ted Falcon and DJ ChaChaCha.

“Talagang napapanahon ito sa ating political situation ngayon na mainit dahil sa darating na halalan,” says Alex. 

“We will tell people to cool down with our joke news. First time naming tatlo to work together in one show so bagong trio itong mapapanood nyo dito sa BuKo Channel starting March 21. 

"We all feel so blessed kasi we love delivering the news, pero may bali siya in a very intelligent way to make it funny, so kung gusto nyo ma-relax, don’t miss it.”
