LAFFLINE – The comedy bar where many celebrities started their career will close due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Several businesses were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Amid the quarantine measures in the Philippines, many companies and firms temporarily stopped their operations for several weeks.
The pandemic has not only affected businesses but as well as classes in schools, church gatherings, and the then normal in the society. Undeniably, things have greatly changed in just a few months.
With regards to businesses, among those that closed are the comedy bars. Eat Bulaga! host Allan K decided to declare bankruptcy and close Klownz and Zirkoh. The said comedy bars operated for 18 years and 16 years respectively.
Aside from Klownz and Zirkoh, another comedy bar is also set to close – the Laffline. Based on a report on Pep, entertainment manager Orli Domingo expressed that the owner of the comedy bar, Mr. Ricardo Castañeda, is just renting the space in Timog Avenue.
Domingo said that the owner continues to pay for the rent even though the Laffline is not operating due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That is why he decided to close the comedy bar. It is where the careers of many celebrities started.
Meanwhile, based on the report, Punchline which is the sister comedy bar of Laffline, under the same owner, may be back to operation when things return to normal. It is because its space is really under the ownership of Mr. Castañeda.
Several celebrities like Vice Ganda, Wacky Kiray, Pooh, Anton Diva, and Ethel Booba started their careers in the said comedy bars. Also, the late comedian Chokoleit has performed in the said bars.
