Popularly known as Bitoy, Michael V. honed his comedy skills and talent with TV5 18 years ago (in the then ABC Channel 5) as one of the original members of the iconic gag show Tropang Trumpo, which ran for five years. Back when Tropang Trumpo was airing, Michael V. and his ka-Tropa (led by Ogie Alcasid and Gelli De Belen who have also returned to TV5 and became bona fide Kapatid talents) gave viewers a weekly dose of fun and laughter.
Bitoy’s comic ingenuity has popularized a number of hilarious characters through various shows and movies he has done and are still doing to this day. He is undeniably one of the most versatile actors and impersonators of this generation. Further, he has also made his mark in the music industry where he also excelled as a rapper, singer, and composer.
Killer Karaoke is a big hit in the UK, USA, Russia, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Thailand, Argentina, Peru, Brazil, Ecuador, and Mexico. The US version was also acquired by TV5 and has been airing every Saturday since September 14. It has been well-received by viewers and TV5 now gives the thrilling Karaoke challenge a Pinoy twist.
Premiering on November 16 at 9:00pm under the direction of Mike Tuviera, Killer Karaoke Pinoy Naman promises to be wackier as Bitoy adds his own brand of comedy to the already hilarious format as Pinoys now get to participate and try out the game show’s nerve-wracking challenges.
