Set to air in two special episodes starting this Saturday, the Tropa Mo Ko Unli Middle East invasion highlights the signature comedic antics and riotous humor of the unli-fun cast led by Ogie Alcasid, Gelli de Belen, Alwyn Uytingco, Tuesday Vargas, Wendell Ramos, Empoy, Ritz Azul, Edgar Allan Guzman, Valeen Montenegro, with special guest Iwa Moto.
Friends and relatives of Overseas Filipinos in the Middle East will surely be delighted to see how our kapatids in Abu Dhabi and Dubai were at the edge of their seats most especially during the performances of their favorite Tropa Mo Ko Unli segments, such as Singing Biik, Corny Maybe, Laysa May Toyo, and Paminta 101.
Both live shows had the whole audience in a celebratory mood, especially when some of the cast members went off the stage for a number of surprise performances. The female audience could not get their hands off both Wendell Ramos and Edgar Allan Guzman, as both hunks serenaded them. Meanwhile, Tuesday Vargas’ infectious personality kept everyone in high spirits as she threw impromptu spiels and jokes with some male audience members. To cap it all off, Ogie Alcasid treated everyone to a mini-concert by belting out some of his classic and all-time favorite hits.
TV5 International President and CEO Claro Carmelo Ramirez shared, “For the past 3 years, we have brought TV5’s best programs to every Filipino household in this region, and we wanted to take this opportunity to make their viewing experience even more enjoyable and memorable by bringing to Dubai and Abu Dhabi some of TV5’s most sought-after and popular stars for the viewers to meet in person. This is just our little gesture of saying thank you to all our Kapatids in the Middle East for making this very important company milestone a reality.”
In addition, viewers should definitely look out for the signature spoof segment of funnyman Empoy as, this time, he takes on the popular Hollywood blockbuster film 300: Rise of an Empire and puts his own, unique spin to it. The special segment, entitled 300: Rise on an Empoy, was especially shot on location in one of Middle East’s picturesque deserts and will definitely be one the must-watch segments of the episode.
The special Middle Eastern summer invasion of Tropa Mo Ko Unli will premiere this Saturday, April 26 at 7:15pm and will continue on May 3 at the same time, airing only on TV5.
