Vhong: 'I joined showbiz because of Dolphy'

An emotional Vhong Navarro on Wednesday paid tribute to the country's "King of Comedy" Dolphy, saying he joined show business because of his admiration for the veteran comedian.

"Kaya po ako nag-artista dahil isa po siya sa iniidolo ko at ng lahat ng kabataan at nakakatanda. Kaya po gusto kong maging komedyante, kasi si Tito Dolphy ang naging daan, (ipinakita niya) ang buhay ay dapat maging magaan lang," Navarro said on the ABS-CBN's noontime show "It's Showtime." 

Navarro said he admired Dolphy's strong disposition in life and passion for making people happy.

"Kahit na mayroon tayong problemang pinagdaraanan sa buhay sinasabi niya idaan mo sa tawa at ito ay nakakahawa. Kaya 'yon ang naging daan kaya ako pumasok sa showbiz, sa pag-aartista dahil gusto kong magpasaya ng tao na kahit na may problema ako ay dinadaan ko sa tawa," Navarro said.
"Salamat at ako ay isa sa napakaswerteng tao dahil nakasama kita dahil isa kang ini-idolo at salamat dahil naramdaman ko na tinuring mo akong anak kaya ngayon  hanggang kailanman ay tatawagin kitang 'Tatay Dolphy.' I love you so much," Navarro added.

Navarro worked with Dolphy in the film "“Daddy O, Baby O” and the long-running TV sitcom “Home Along Da Riles.” In Dolphy's biography "Hindi Ko Ito Narating Mag-Isa," the King of Comedy praised Navarro as one of the best young comedians in the country.

"Sa mga bagong comedians, marami akong gusto. Si Vic Sotto, OK 'yan. Generous din, pero hindi mo masasabing bago ang Tito, Vic and Joey. Si Vhong Navarro, OK," Dolphy said.
Dolphy died on Tuesday night due to multiple organ failure brought by pneumonia and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

  6. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you
    could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
