Vice Ganda, before rising to stardom, is commonly called ‘Totoy’ (young boy). The youngest of five, ‘Tutoy’ or Jose Marie Borja Viceral in real life grew up on the streets of Sta. Cruz, Manila. At first glance, he is like any other young boy in their neighborhood, playing basketball and fond of checking on women. But for ‘Tutoy’ he found out since the start that he was not so fond of women.
‘Tutoy” became inspired to enter the entertainment scene in the early demise of his father, and the fact that his mother had to go abroad and work for the family. He was branded as “Vice” by his close friend, a sweet version of his surname “Viceral.” He studied Political Science in Far Eastern University where he also had an inclination as he became popular while playing basketball.
In 1999 when Vice Ganda decided to join the field of stand-up comedy that started as a casual fun in a comedy bar where his talent was discovered. From here, Vice began his career as a comedian in Punchline and The Library. Comedy bar owner Ricardo Castaneda coined the name Vice Ganda or “Beautiful Vice” — the name that led him to further his career and became popular even in cinema while gaining avid followers.
As he became enthused with his newfound destiny, Vice Ganda continued to rise to stardom and he penetrated the television through tele-series, sitcoms and variety shows.
His biggest break was when Vice Ganda, in 2009 became an official member of the television giant ABS-CBN where it became a top-rated noontime variety show. He was tagged as “the unkabogable Vice Ganda,” when he became regular int he show as a result of backing from his followers.
Vice, the fashion icon and endorser, proved his success on screen in his strings of movies that really became a hit — the reason he was branded as “ the phenomenal box-office star. “ He was the first-ever “Gay superstar in Asia.” The wide array of songs he interpreted and recorded also became a hit like his album “Lakas Tama,” under Vicor Music.
