Jose Marie Borja Viceral who uses the stage name Vice Ganda, is a Filipino comedian, television presenter, endorser, actor, and recording artist. Viceral is a regular host/judge on ABS-CBN’s noontime variety show It's Showtime and starred in films, two of which are considered the highest-grossing films in Philippine cinema.
He is best known for his stand-up routines, for which he uses observational comedy, situational irony and sarcasm in pertaining to Filipino culture and human sexuality. He is also the first openly gay endorser for a major product (Globe Telecom).
The youngest of five children, Viceral grew up in the neighbourhood along José Abád Santos Street in Manuguit, Tondo, Manila. His father, a barangay captain, was murdered when he was young, prompting his mother to leave the children for work abroad as a caregiver. He took Political Science at Far Eastern University, and at age 19, had begun writing and performing stand-up comic routines in comedy bars in Ermita, Manila.
He was bullied regularly as a child for being a closeted homosexual by his peers but luckily he turned his pain into passion and became a very out and proud celebrity that can make a difference in the gay community.
