Marvic Castelo Sotto (born April 28, 1954), known as Vic Sotto, is a Filipino actor, television presenter, comedian, singer-songwriter and film producer from the Philippines. Sotto is well-known for his various television and film projects on the major Philippine television networks, GMA Network, TV5, ABS-CBN and RPN. Sotto is one of the three pioneer hosts of Eat Bulaga!, which is the longest running noon-time variety show in the Philippines; Sotto also owns a film and TV production outfit named M-Zet Productions. Sotto won four consecutive titles for Philippine Box Office King from 2004 through 2007 in the Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Foundation Awards and received three nominations for Best Actor in the Metro Manila Film Festival Awards.


Family background

Marvic Castelo Sotto was born on April 28, 1954 to Marcelino Ojeda Sotto, Sr. and Dr. Herminia Castelo. He studied at Colegio de San Juan de Letran. He is the brother of Marcelino "Maru" Sotto, Jr., Vicente "Tito" Sotto III, and Valmar "Val" Sotto. [1]


Early career

He started his career as a folk singer and guitarist. 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".

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!

Current career

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).

Personal life

Sotto has 4 children from previous relationships: Vico Sotto (with actress Coney Reyes), Danica Sotto-Pingris and Oyo Sotto (with actress Dina Bonnevie) and Paulina Sotto (with former commercial model / TV actress Angela Luz).

Sotto confirmed his engagement to Eat Bulaga! co-host Pauleen Luna in September 2015. The couple married on January 30, 2016 at Ayala Alabang, Muntinlupa City.[2]
