MANILA, November 22, 2017 – iflix, the world’s leading entertainment service for emerging markets, is thrilled to announce the premiere the exhilarating, no-holds-barred comedy series, Hoy! Bibig Mo. This series will officially start on December 1, 2017.

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. Only the sharpest, most audacious comedians take 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.
During the Hoy! Bibig Mo launch, media partners and special guests were given a special treat as some of the comedians from the show gave them a taste of what’s to come. Every topic was not spared as stories from the 90’s to life as a OFW really hit home. The evening was a huge success as belly-aching laughter burst from the audience thru the whole night.
iflix Global Director of Original Programming, Mark Francis said; “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 funny men 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.”
