MANILA – Comedian Wacky Kiray is dedicating his “I Can Do That” win to his good friend, Vice Ganda.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News after winning the celebrity competition on Sunday, Wacky said he will forever be grateful for the “It’s Showtime” host who has supported him all the way.
“Kung may taong papasalamatan ako ng sobra-sobra dahil mula simula, sinuportahan niya ako, ‘yun ay si Vice. Thank you so much at sobrang salamat. Para sa iyo ito. Mahal na mahal kita, sobrang thank you,” he said.
Prior to “I Can Do That,” Wacky used to be a stand-up comedian in several comedy bars. He was also the jester in “Gandang Gabi Vice” where he became one of Vice Ganda’s sidekicks.
According to Wacky, he did not expect to win the competition because all of them are deserving to win.
“Sabi ko, kahit makapasok lang sa Top 4, kahit third runner-up lang, okay na ako. Hindi ko in-expect na ako ‘yung magiging greatest entertainer,” he said.
“Sa tagal naming nagsama-sama, hindi na kumpetisyon ‘yung nararamdaman namin. Pamilya na kami dito. Talagang ine-enjoy lang namin yung mga ginagawa namin,” he added.
Asked how he thinks this victory will change his life, Wacky said: “Hindi pa pumapasok sa isip ko. [Basta ang una kong gagawin], magsisimba. Magpapasalamat ako sa Panginoon.”
Meanwhile, Wacky said he will use his prize money to get a house and lot for his parents.
Now that the show is over, Wacky said he will always treasure the greatest learning that he got from the show.
“Huwag kang bibitaw. Basta laban lang. Kung ano ang binigay sayong pagsubok, basta laban lang,” he said.
Wacky wowed the audience Saturday with his stunning wire balancing act.
