MANILA, Philippines - They are not certified concert performers but on March 2, comic duo Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola promise to take Smart-Araneta Coliseum by storm with their own brand of zany antics in their first major concert.
Billed "The Jose & Wally Show, Party for Every Juan," the show also features Regine Velasquez, Ai Ai de las Alas, Vic Sotto, Joey de Leon, Dennis Trillo, Aljur Abrenica, Aiza Seguerra, Ciara Sotto and Solenn Heussaff.
Jose started as a sidekick in the original "Valiente" TV series and worked on the side as production assistant-floor director of "Eat Bulaga."
Wally, meanwhile, was a top favorite in sing-along bars before he was handpicked to be an "EB" junior host. The duo's chemistry has helped "Eat Bulaga" endure as a top noontime attraction, well liked as they are in the "Juan for All, All for Juan, Bayanihan of the Pipol."
During the Araneta show, Wally will do a production number with his favorite Gary Valenciano.
"The Jose & Wally Show, Party for Every Juan!" is directed by Philip Lazaro. Tickets to the show are available at all SM Stores' Customer Service Department.
