“ASAP Natin ‘To” paid its last respects to late OPM comedian Chokoleit, who died on Saturday night.

In a touching number on Sunday, the variety show’s mainstays including Regine Velasquez, Zsa Zsa Padilla and Kyla performed “Send in the Clowns.”

Chokoleit, whose real name was Jonathan Aguilar Garcia, was featured in ABS-CBN movies and shows, most notably in 2004's Kapamilya fantaserye "Marina".

In a statement, Star Magic said: "Chokoleit was performing in Abra, and experienced difficulty in breathing after his performance."

The comedian was rushed to the Abra Provincial Hospital, where he succumbed to pulmonary edema and heart attack, his attending physician Dr. Rosauro Seares said.
