Actor Arjo Atayde shared a photo of him with US-based Filipino stand-up comedian Jo Koy, who he said has been an inspiration.
Atayde posted the photo on his Instagram account on Saturday.
A self-confessed fan, Atayde said he first encountered Jo Koy's videos on YouTube 14 years ago.
"I waited so long for this moment and it truly is such an honour to finally meet him. Thank you so much @jokoy you’re such an inspiration. Please make sure to come back!!" Atayde wrote.
Atayde also thanked his girlfriend, Maine Mendoza, for making the meetup possible.
"But also, aside from Jo Koy, thank you to this cutie in the middle for the most unbelievable and unexpected surprise ever. I love you.. Thank you ❤️" Atayde added.
It was not clear when the meeting between Atayde and Jo Koy happened, but the comedian was in the Philippines last month for a show.
