The longest-running musical comedy variety show in the country is back to showcase its take on this year's hottest topic: the 2016 elections.

A production of the UP Samahan ng mga Mag-aaral sa Komunikasyon (UP Samaskom), "Live A.I.D.S (Ang Istoryang Dinebelop ng Samaskom)" has captured the public for three decades with its formula: a satirical portrayal of Filipinos' usual struggles, while aiming to change the perception of various stereotypes in society.

And this year, for its thirty-first installment, "Live A.I.D.S" remains relevant as ever as it tackles the 2016 Elections in a way that speaks to the younger generation.

“The comedy is the language of the millennials, this show aims to demystify the myth about millennials and we also want to make it appealing to them by making characters that really based on the millennials,” VJ Santos, the show’s director, said.

“It’s really the formula, it’s hit, it’s about the current issues so there’s no Live AIDS that is similar to the previous one because it really takes on what’s happening around us, so expect this year the show to be highly political.”

This year's production, entitled "Live A.I.D.S. HA-LOL-AN 2016," will run from April 22 to 24 at Abelardo Hall, College of Music in UP Diliman.
