Other stars were Mark Bautista, TJ Trinidad, Gie Tongie, Geoff Eigenmann, Carla Abellana, Kyla and Ogie Diaz.
The public viewing is expected to end at 6 p.m.
A necrological mass, sponsored by Zsa Zsa Padilla’s “ASAP” family, will be held at the memorial chapel Saturday night. It will be followed by another eulogy arranged by Dolphy's contemporaries and other comedians he worked with over the years.
Another necrological service is scheduled on Sunday morning.
Dolphy’s burial on Sunday will not be open to the public but the Quizon family has allowed live media coverage. The burial is expected to start around 2 p.m. The Comedy King's final resting place is a simple black granite tomb located along the main road of the Heritage Park west cemetery.
