The family of Manuel “Jun” Urbano Jr., better known as “Mr. Shooli,” confirmed his passing on Saturday, December 2. He was eighty-four.

Actor, director, creative director of advertising, and satire artist Urbano was highly regarded for his contributions to Philippine media.

His character Mr. Shooli, the perplexed Mongolian title character of the political commentary series Mongolian Barbecue, gained the most notoriety on television, in movies, and online. In a 2014 interview with Inquirer.net, Urbano stated that he thought comedy was one of the finest ways he could relate to the Filipino people.

Urbano would even ask politicians to debate political matters with Mr. Shooli on YouTube, such as former senators Dick Gordon and Antonio Trillanes IV.

In addition, he is the director and writer of the movies M.O.N.A.Y (Misteyks obda neyson adres Yata) ni Mr. Shooli, Juan Tamad at Mr. Shooli: Mongolian Barbecue, and Vontes V.

The University of the Philippines (UP) bestowed on him this year’s Gawad Plaridel, one month before to his demise, in October. He received recognition for both his work in multimedia commercial advertising and his social criticism through his Mr. Shooli persona.

Mr. Shooli, Urbano’s well-known alter persona, delivered his Gawad Plaridel award speech. He has used comedy to discuss the various realities that exist in the nation.
