Through Facebook on Wednesday, August 3, Herman “Isko” Salvador, known as Brod Pete, admitted that he retired from showbiz due to being “laos”.
He said he will now focus on his “singing career” and online comedy writing workshop for aspiring writers.
Pete wrote, “Yes laos na po ako after 43 yrs sa showbiz as a writer and comedian. Im now retired. Nakakasawa din.
“But I am launching my singing career FYI – to pursue my true love — music!
“Ive tried politics, mas nakakatawa kesa sa komedi ang politika. Di ako pinalad para konsehal- siguro dahil sinabe ko na – para mawala ang baha ipapasemento ko ang marikina river- u dont know soundbytes- anyways – marikina deserves less.
“Btw- I am conducting an online comedy writing workshop/playshop! Sept 3 7pm- via zoom. 1k petot lang- 43 yrs of comedy writing in 3 plus hrs.”
Many netizens regarded his post as a joke thus, they are hesitant to believe this.
He became a candidate for the Marikina City 1st district councilor race during the May 9, 2022 elections, but he failed to win.
He is known for his Ang Dating Doon parody segment in the comedy show Bubble Gang, as a host of Celebrity Bluff, and his frequent use of the word “alien”.
