Alex Calleja: Getting Ready To Make the Whole World Laugh


One of the top stand-up comedians in the country, Alex “The Master” Calleja from Comedy Manila, has been selected to represent the Philippines at Laugh Factory’s Funniest Person in the World Contest, where he will be competing with 88 comedians from 55 other countries.

Alex Calleja is one of the top headliners from Comedy Manila, a production house that features comedians that perform observational stand-up comedy showcasing comedians that are funny and original. Some of the comedians from Comedy Manila are Ryan Rems Sarita, Nonong Ballinan, Victor Anastacio, Red Ollero, James Caraan, and GB Labrador.

Alex has been doing stand-up comedy since 2007, and his natural comedic prowess not only made him one of the most popular comedians today, but also one of the top comedy writers in the country, writing for ABS-CBN shows like Goin’ Bulilit, Showtime, and Funny Ka, Pare Ko. Alex is also one of the DJ’s from Magic 89.9’s popular radio show Boys Night Out: Taco Tuesdays.

Alex is clearly taking over TV, radio and the live stage when it comes to comedy, making him a good choice to represent the Philippines at Laugh Factory’s Funniest Person in the World Contest.

We can all send Alex to the next round of the competition by just doing three things: watch, like, and share.

The top 20 comedians with the most number of likes, shares and votes will travel to the USA to perform in front of a live audience to compete for the title of the Funniest Person in the World.

The Philippines will not be one of the happiest places on earth if we don’t have the funniest citizens in the planet. Filipinos will always have that natural wit and humor and it is time for us to showcase that Pinoy humor to the rest of the world.

Let’s all make sure a Filipino comedian takes the world stage and make the whole world laugh with original Filipino humor.
