MANILA, Philippines – King of Comedy Dolphy has revealed that his health is getting better.

In an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN News during his 83rd birthday celebration on Monday, Dolphy said that unlike before, he can now take off his oxygen support every 2 hours.

Furthermore, Dolphy said that by next week, he won't depend on his oxygen tank anymore. “At least nagi-improve ako,” he said.

“Bumalik na naman yung kutis natin, medyo gumanda-ganda. Dati talagang bangkay na e,” the comedian said in jest.

Singer Zsa Zsa Padilla, on the other hand, thanked all the supporters of her partner who constantly prayed for his speedy recovery.

Meanwhile, Dolphy also had something to say about the issue regarding the 2004 poll fraud.

Dolphy appealed to former Commission on Elections Commissioner Virgilio Garcillano to surface so that the cheating allegations about the 2004 elections would be given light.

“Dapat naging Presidente talaga ‘yon (Fernando Poe Jr.) eh. Kaya Garci, lumabas ka na. Please naman. Nasa iyo ang susi eh,” he said.

Dolphy also urged the public to give President Benigno Aquino III a chance since he has been in power for only a year.

“Pagbigyan natin. Nag-aapura tayo eh. Iisang taon pa lang naman. Siyam na taon tayong medyo tagilid,” he said. – Report from Mario Dumaual, ABS-CBN News
