Soon, Myanmar will get a taste of Eat Bulaga!, the longest-running noontime show in the Philippines.

This was announced during the variety show’s 40th-anniversary episode today and on its official social media accounts.

“First Big Announcement: There will be a new Eat Bulaga franchise! There will now be Eat Bulaga Myanmar!” a tweet from earlier this afternoon says in English and Filipino.

A post on Facebook, meanwhile, includes a photo of longtime hosts Vic Sotto and Joey de Leon with a representative from Eat Bulaga! Myanmar, Captain Aung Po.

Ngayon pati ang mga taga Myanmar ma-experience na ang isang libo’t isang tuwa! (Now even those from Myanmar will experience one thousand and one joys),” the photo’s caption reads, referencing a line from the show’s theme song.
