October 24, 2008

Banana Split Girls Roxanne Guinoo, Cristine Reyes, Angelica Panganiban, Valerie Concepcion and RR Herrera. Banana Split is the female version of Goin’ Bananas, the popular ’80s gag show that starred Christopher de Leon, Johnny Delgado, Edgar Mortiz and the late Jay Ilagan. The scriptwriters of Banana Split consist of the same writers, who worked in Goin’ Bananas, Tropang Trumpo and Goin’ Bulilit. Banana Split Girls Cast are not just sexy girls but are touted to be good actresses as well.

At first Banana Split got a negative reaction mainly because of its allegedly suggestive concept, and that it mainly targets the male audience. Director Edgar “Bobot” Mortiz denies it was conceptualized as such, “Hindi sila komedyante dito, kundi actors sila doing comedy. So maipapakita nila ‘yung talent nila hindi bilang komedyante kundi ang magpapatawa dito ‘yung script namin. “Yung (Goin’) Bananas namin nung araw, ‘yung pinakita namin, we are not comedians noon. We were actors doing comedy. ‘Yun din ang gusto kong gawin dito sa Banana Split. Di sila komedyante, artista sila. Banana Split airs every Saturday right after MMK (Maalaala Mo Kaya) on ABS-CBN.
