This Week on ‘We Rise Together’: AC Bonifacio, Alex Calleja, Kim Molina + Jerald Napoles!

A world-renowned stand-up comedian, a fascinating dancer, and an incredibly talented couple joined this week's episodes of "We Rise Together"!

On the August 16 episode, stand-up comedian and now podcaster Alex Calleja joined the show to talk about his recent viral interview with Ogie Diaz, where he lamented the effects of the pandemic on him and his family.

It was during these difficult times that Alex learned how to adjust in terms of his career as a comedian, and shared how he adapted to digital platforms such as using live streaming and doing podcasts.

"Dati kasi kapag live 'yan, maririnig mo agad ang reaksyon [ng audience]. Ngayon ang ginagawa ko, adjust ka lang ng onti. Makakatulong din sa pag-develop mo sa sarili mo. Ngayon, kapag nag-iistand up ako sa mga tao, ayoko ng may audio, kapag may tawanan, nasasapawan 'yung boses mo. So ang ginagawa ko, mute pero naka-on ang video. Kasi sa'kin, nakikita kong may gumaganun [tumatawa]. Dito, ang rhythm ko is the movement," he shared.

New Generation Dance Princess AC Bonifacio shared more of her "ASAP" experience with her best friend, dancer and social media personality Niana Guerrero. In case you didn't know, AC was the one who made Niana's guesting possible in the variety show.

"'ASAP' has been trying to get Niana, but it never really pulled through. So I was like, 'Okay po, ako na po ang magco-contact kay Niana.' I texted her, tapos we told Tito, we told Tita. Sobrang close po kasi talaga kami ni Niana, as in parang family na talaga," she shared.

AC said Niana really had a memorable experience being an "artista" for a day.

"We had so much fun, she had so much fun also that day meeting all the artistas. She was like, 'Wow, naging AC Bonifacio for one day.' We come from very different worlds, right? Me being on television, and her being online. It was very nice that she got to experience that," she added.

The stars of the new romance film "Ikaw at Ako at ang Ending," Kim Molina and Jerald Napoles, had a fun chitchat in the August 21 episode as they talked about their newest project.

According to Jerald, as cliche as it may sound, their fans can expect a different Jerald and Kim in this movie since it's a far cry from their usual rom-com films.

Kim also believes their movie is relatable in many ways, especially for people longing for love during a pandemic.

"It's very relatable especially now dahil si Mylene, 'yung character ko, at 'yung character ni Jerald, si Martin, sila ay dalawang tao na gusto lang naman makaramdam ng tunay na pagmamahal at kaligayahan. Pero paano mo 'yun makakamit kung patapos na ang mundo? So 'yung feeling na the world is ending and you only have each other, so paano kayo magsu-survive sa ganon," she said.

"Tapos meron din siyang twist na, what if may chance ka na baguhin ang buhay mo ngayon, pero ang kapalit nga nun maraming bagay gaya ng katapusan ng mundo," Jerald hinted.
