It’s been a while since I laughed so hard I almost fell from my seat!  Now I know that going into a comedy variety show with a slight sore throat can be VERY, VERY deadly.  All those performances were downright stressful and sometimes chilling to the bones!  All because… the performers are all professors from UP!  *gasp*

I mean… Chancellor Cao singing a ballad with a suit on, and 5 seconds later he’s wearing a Hagibis jacket and belting out Manila, Manila?!  Or… National Artists Bienvenido Lumbera and Virgilio Almario doing a showdown of brains and beauty wearing girly outfits?! (This really shocked the hell out of me, but it got me thinking how versatile these people could be, all in the name of fun!)  I sank very low to my seat when our dean, who was the proverbial fashionista in our college, walked down the aisle a-la Meryl Streep in the Devil Wears Prada (how apt!).  And then… Sir Jamon happened.  Director lang naman ng Unang Hirit… the lights went out (although no emergency lights were needed) and when it went back on we saw him going around the theater in just his underwear!  Ohmygulay.  What has this world come to?

In all fairness to our professors, I really enjoyed their performances.  It just goes to show how well-rounded UP Professors are, ready to let go of strictness and composure if it’s time to have fun.  Makes me more proud to be a UP student!

    Hagikhikan was hilarious. Dr. Jovy Peregrino did it again (he was almost exactly like that in the CAL Faculty Follies I watched the other year).

    I kinda wish every college/unit in Diliman participated though. What happened to CS? At least we got Eng’g in by way of Ma’am Gev. 😀 But I’m thankful enough the Chancellor and President took part.

    I honestly thought Dr. Peregrino was a woman! Hahaha. Not until someone told me he’s a dude did I find out.

    And yeah! I was waiting for Eng’g’s number. Busy siguro sa Engg Week and all. Hehehe. =P
