  • It’s true, laughter is strong medicine. It draws people together in ways that trigger healthy physical and emotional alterations in the body. Laughter boosts your mood, strengthens your immune system and protects you from the damaging effect of stress. In this time of pandemic, a laughter or two can go a long way to lift up your dreary spir-its and anxieties.

    JOJO ALPUERTO is a realtor by profession, a stand-up comedian, singer/musician by preoccupation. Vancouverites surely remember him as the other half of funny duo, “Pork en Bean”. Alpuerto is a comedian who’s naturally funny without even trying. He also serves his community as highly esteemed pastor at the Church of Latter Day Saints in British Columbia.

    JEPPY PARAISO is the man behind viral “Tita Che” videos. Raised in America by Fili-pino parents, Paraiso has always been in touch with his Filipino roots. After seeing all the posts about American aunts on Thanksgiving, he couldn’t help but compare them to his own titas. Hence, the birth of “Tita Che” in November 2017. Paraiso worked as pastry chef at a gourmet doughnut joint in Washington DC. It started with a simple one-minute video inspired by the Thanksgiving Clap-back memes that everyone around him had been sharing. “Tita Che” is now considered amongst most popular social me-dia influencers. He helps younger Filipinos growing up abroad familiarise themselves with Filipino culture, values and traditions.
