Glendale Heights, IL – Mikey “Pinoyboy” Bustos and Nanette “Dona Buding” Inventor rocked the McAninch Arts Center at College of Du Page last Sunday, August 30, 2015 with a very entertaining program of comedy and music, Pinoy style. The Philippine-American Cultural Foundation (PACF) and Piyesta Pinoy are proud to have sponsored the first ever Pinoy comedy concert featuring a very good combination of two very talented and funny singers/comedians to Illinois – You Tube sensation Mikey attracted the younger generation while veteran actress/comedian/singer Nanette Inventor attracted the baby boomers. “We were blessed to have two good entertaining comedians and a receptive audience.  Everyone seemed to enjoy the show. What a great relief!  If we had more time, we could have filled the 780 capacity theater. Thank you all for contributing to the success of Pinoy Comedy Concert.” said Adeline Fajardo, PACF president.

There was also a mini-palengke at the lobby with Pinoy food favorites from Manila Fiesta, Goldilocks, Titus Frozen Bangus , Val’s Asian Mart and merchandise for sale from Darlene’s Boutique.
