He then described how Michael V guides and encourages the cast of the Kapuso gag show.
“Sa akin po, ang natutunan ko kay Kuya Bitoy, very professional. Si kuya Bitoy, wala kang angal na maririnig. He’s a good mentor, hindi siya boss. Although parang boss namin siya sa Bubble Gang but he doesn’t act that way.
“He acts like a leader natuturuan ka, iga-guide ka, hindi ‘yung boss na ‘gawin mo ‘to.’ Hindi ganon, gawin mo ‘to, ganito ‘yung atake. Matututo ka, hindi ka matatatakot. ‘Yun ‘yung kagandahan kay Kuya Bitoy.”
