KITKAT FAVIA (1)

KITKAT FAVIA has been roaming the world of showbiz for some years already.

But, her dream was to be a singer and not a comedienne.

Paano ba? At ano ang ikinaiba niya sa iba?

“Hmmmmm… ‘Di ko nga po alam na komedyante po ako eh. Na-discover kasi po ako sa mga comedy bars kaya ‘yun ang naging label ko-comedienne! Pero singer po talaga kasi ako. Ka-batch ko si Sarah G at aAngeline Quinto sa “Star For A Night”. Nakakatuwa lang na talgang natural lang pala naman ‘yung pagiging komedyante ko.”

One fine evening, in Metrowalk, KitKat invited me and two other friends to get a taste of what her iBagnet offers.

At napag-usapan her nomination as Best Stand-Up comedian in this year’s Aliw.

“Sa Best Stand Up Comedian po mga pang apat po ito. Nung nanalo po ako ng Best Actress kasabay din po nun nominated pa din po ako Best Stand Up Comedian at Best Crossover Artist…”

And how does it feel for the nth time?

“Hehehe ang sarap po palagi kasi dahil sa appreciation. Super nakakataba po ng puso as in, syempre supporting lang naman ako lagi so madalas sa madalas hindi na kami napapansin. Ang sarap sa pakiramdam na kahit saan napapansin po pala ako… iba din ang dating pag nano-nominate tumataas ang value hahahah lalo pa pag nanalo haha. Ang laki’ng bonus!”

Expectations?

“Syempre naman po sinong ayaw manalo. Competitive po akong tao so sa lahat ng bagay gusto ko lagi ako angat hahaha OC ba kahit mga palo-sebo na laro or habulang baboy di ako papatalo eh. Hahaha. Pero ma-nominate palang iba na ang saya eh, lalo pa pag nanalo!”

Is there a secret or a tried and testes formula to win if not at least get a nomination?

“Hahaha ‘yun po di ko nga alam. Alam ko dati sa mga bida lang at prime ang mga awards-awards. Aminin natin lagi natin iniisip sa kahit anong award award kahit best in friendship award pa yan usually ‘yung pangalan ang nagdadala so di ko naiisip na mano-nominate kasi di naman ako star. Katuwa lang po na lagi ako napapansin.”

2016- Best Actress in a featured role Musical (winner), Best Stand Up Comedian, Best Crossover Artist.

2017- BEST STAND UP COMEDIAN nominated

Feathers in her cap. And looking forward to more.

And now, she’s busy with?

“Puro gigs po ako ngayon at mga corporate shows especially now na December na. Fully booked ang December. Need kumayod. Halos ubos ako sa pagkamatay ni Nanay…Now need gumastos ng malaki para sa operasyon ni papa ko.”
