MANILA — Running thin on patience, an exasperated Vice Ganda drew gasps and laughs as he partly removed his wig during the live episode of “It’s Showtime” on Monday.
The comedian, who had just wrapped a sold-out three-night concert with Regine Velasquez, continued his hosting duties for the Miss Q&A and Tawag ng Tanghalan segments of the noontime show.
Interviewing one contestant after the other, Vice Gand said, in jest, he had less patience than usual when it came to insufficient or off-topic answers.
Back-to-back hopefuls on Tawag ng Tanghalan, in particular, pushed Vice Ganda to declare, “Pagod na rin ako talaga, e!” after their response came short of satisfying him.
In a moment that had the live audience shrieking, Vice Ganda casually removed part of his wig, exposing the back and top sides of his head.
The official YouTube upload of the video quickly rose through the trending list, as it garnered some 700,000 views overnight.
Vice Ganda, who has made his receding hairline a frequent subject of his own jokes, first revealed his bare apperance in 2015 as he gave an inspirational message about self-empowerment and accepting one’s flaws, also on “It’s Showtime.”
