Comedian Michael V is on the cover of the September 2008 issue of Reader’s Digest, becoming only the 2nd Filipino to achieve that feat (the first one was former President Cory Aquino).
Reader’s Digest is a widely read general interest family magazine, which started in the United States and has international editions, including Asia. The comedian said he was so surprised because he thought the magazine would only write a feature story about his life. “Parang â€˜di ako makapaniwala kasi may nagpadala ng sulat regarding the cover. Sabi pangalawang Pinoy palang daw ako na mag co-cover.” he said. “So parang di ko alam gagawin ko talaga. Kasi alam ko lang may feature. â€˜Di ko alam na mag co-cover pala.” he added. He is a mainstay of GMA Network’s gag show Bubblegang and he is also the host of Bitoyâ€™s Yari Ka.
