MANILA -- Four stand-up comedians -- all with different personalities -- took center stage and delivered their punchlines at "The Bottomline with Boy Abunda" on Saturday night.

One of the co-founders of Comedy Manila, GB Labrador, who has represented the country in Malaysia and all over Asia during stand-up comedy tours, said that minus the joke, he is simply a fan of music.

"I sing, and I love to laugh," Labrador told Abunda.

Labrador, who said that his mom is at the core of his comedy acts, has also been blessed to perform in Singapore in 2011 with other stand-up comedians.

"Most of my biggest jokes are about my mom, and yes, I did my mom jokes in Singapore. And they laughed," he said.

During his performance in Singapore, Labrador also did bits about Filipinos being religious "and all that," which also received laughter from the audience.

When asked what he fears most while on stage, he said: "Dead air. There's nothing more scarier than a joke that does not work on stage."

During the show, Labrador and his Comedy Manila co-founder Eri Neeman, Ateneo graduate Victor Anastacio and writer/DJ/host Alex Calleja tried their respective materials in front of the audience, composed mainly of students from different universities in Manila.
