Comedy Cartel – The true pioneers of Point-of-view Stand Up Comedy in the Philippines

Comedy Cartel, the true pioneers in point-of-view stand-up comedy in the Philippines produced another quality comedy show last night as they held the 8th Leg of the Laugh and Stack Open Mic showdown.






We invited blogger friends over, so they could witness the type of comedy that Comedy Cartel offers and to help us spread the good news that there are superb comedians waiting to be discovered.

The event was held at Relik Tapas Bar and Lounge at BGC.

Before the show started, we were treated by Relik Tapas Bar and Lounge with sumptuous dishes.

Relik Olla Mia, is a platter with Spicy chicken empanada, garlic mushroom, patatas bravas, baked mussels, pepper pizza rolls and my personal favorite, fried chicken skewers.



Relik Olla Mia, Php. 1,150


Flaming Pork Belly Hamonado, hamonado, baked to it’s perfection placed in a bed of mashed potato and some veggies. I’m not really a fan of sweet meat but if you guys are…this could be a bang for your buck. It’s perfectly plated and it adds excitement when you see your food served at your table with flame.


Flaming pork belly hamonada, Php. 695.00


Chorizig. One of Relik’s most popular dishes. I’ve tried this before and this is really, REALLY good. Who doesn’t love chorizo and sisig? 


Chorizig, Php 220.00



Relik’s Nachos. These nachos tastes authentic with 3 dips served for your satisfaction.

I ordered some beer and Relik Spicy Beef barbeque (photo not available) as a token of appreciation for the bloggers whom I invited and showed up despite the short notice.





Comedy Cartel aims to develop fresh stand-up comics by giving them a room/venue with a real audience to practice their materials and hone their comedic skills. At the same time the genius behind the show(Patrick Cruz) spiced it up by turning it into an open mic competition with a cash prize for the champion.
All comics are being coached by veteran comedians right after their sets, and are also undergoing workshops to assure 100% improvement.


The open mic competition will run till the end of the year. They are already on their 8th leg. The audience, professional comedians and the open micers gets to vote who’s gonna be in the top 5 for each leg. The top 15 comics will qualify to hit the stage for the finals in December. 


The show started at 9:15 PM with 11 contestants who shared their comedy prowess to the crowd. The house is packed with comedy fans from all over the globe. Relik even turned down 20 walk ins because the place is already a standing room. So if you wanna see the show, you better book your reservation as early as now. The Next leg will be on the 26th of July 2014. 


Comedy Cartel is known for producing good comedians like Alex Calleja (who was discovered by Tim Tayag and now writing for a Comedy show at ABS-CBN) and GB Labrador, one of the founders of Comedy Manila. Other talents of Comedy Manila like Victor Anastacio, Red Ollero, Ryan Rems, Ryan Puno, James Caraan and Jeps Gallon also started with Comedy Cartel and are now reaping the fruits of their hard work.


Here are the Top 5 for Laugh and Stack’s 8th Leg.

Comedy Cartel’s Laugh and Stack

Happy Monday! 

Last month, we blogged about Comedy Cartel’s Laugh and Stack and some readers asked us the type of comedy that this group offers. Miguel joined the Laugh and Stack Open Mic show down last Saturday and I was able to take a video of his performance. So, for those who asked, and who’re still asking, here’s the video clip of Miguel at the Plantation Bar.



The contest is still open to those who’d love to try stand-up comedy. Please check out Comedy Cartel’s Page for more details.



Leg 4 of Laugh and Stack will be at Relik Tapas Bar this coming Saturday, May 24, 2014. Entrance is FREE but expect that the venue will be jam packed so make your reservations early.
