iflix is thrilled to announce it will premiere the exhilarating, no-holds-barred comedy series, Hoy! Bibig Mo. Starting December 1, all eight episodes will be available to stream or download exclusively on iflix. Hoy! Bibig Mo is iflix’s first original production in the Philippines and is hosted by comedy icon and Internet superstar, Ramon Bautista.
Hoy! Bibig Mo brings a brand new comedy experience to the Philippines. Now, iflix members can enjoy the Philippines’ edgiest comedy club in the comfort and convenience of their homes (or the bus, the train, the bathroom…basically, anywhere you can take your phone). Only the sharpest, most audacious comedians take to the stage with their hilarious, biting and quirky humour. The jokes are bold, near-the-knuckle and sometimes, downright rude. The bottom line is – if it’s funny, it’s in. Alex Calleja, GB Labrador, Tim Tayag and Mike Unson join the incredibly talented showcase, tackling taboo subjects you’ve never seen them joke about before. Hoy! Bibig Mo is the next generation of Filipino comedy, featuring established acts alongside fresh, original talent, completely uncensored in a series of stand-up routines and riotous improvised games.
iflix Global Director of Original Programming, Mark Francis commented: “Following the success of Oi! Jaga Mulut in Malaysia, we’re excited to bring the same boundary-pushing, hilarious stand-up comedy concept to the Philippines and to establish iflix as the destination for the region’s most talented funnymen and women. Delivering hyperlocal, high-impact content is at the crux of our original programming strategy, and we’re committed to raising the bar for the enjoyment of all iflix subscribers.”
In addition to Oi! Jaga Mulut in Malaysia, iflix has also commissioned the comedy series Oi! Jaga Lambe in Indonesia.
