Marvic "Vic" Castelo Sotto (born April 28, 1954) (better known as Bossing), is a Filipino actor, television show host, comedian, and film producer working for GMA Network and stars on noon-time variety show Eat Bulaga!. He won three consecutive titles for Philippine Box Office King (2004, 2005, and 2006).[citation needed]

Biography[edit]

Marvic Castelo Sotto was born on April 28, 1954, to his parents Marcelino Ojeda Sotto and Dr. Herminia Castelo. Sotto studied at Colegio de San Juan de Letran. His grandfather Vicente Sotto has Chinese ancestry. He is the brother of Marcelino Antonio "Maru" Sotto, Jr., Vicente "Tito" Sotto, and Valmar "Val" Sotto. [1]

Early career[edit]

He started his career as a folk singer and guitarist. He then joined his brothers Tito and Val in a gag show "OK Lang" under IBC TV Network. During these years, Sotto was also the lead vocalist of the disco funk band VST & Company. He produced such songs as "Awitin Mo at Isasayaw Ko", "Rock, Baby, Rock", and "Kung Sakali".[citation needed]

He joined his brothers Tito and Val in the early 1970s gag show “OK Lang” under IBC 13. This is where he met another comedian, Joey de Leon, who invited the brothers to join him. The trio of Tito, Vic and Joey (TVJ) was thus formed, casting in Iskul Bukol, TVJ (Television's Jesters), Rock and Roll 2000 and hosting Eat Bulaga!.[citation needed]

In the last three decades, he has done sitcoms and television shows for 3 networks, ABS-CBN, GMA Network and TV5 (most of which were for GMA).
