Alec Mapa with Featured Guests Jeffery Self and Michelle Collins!
“Alec Mapa is a freak. No one should be this talented.” Variety
“Smart, hilarious and funny.” Ellen Degeneres
Alec‘s televison career has gone from desperate to ugly! He is beloved for his recurring roles on ABC’s Desperate Housewives and Ugly Betty. On Wisteria Lane Alec is known as Gabriel Solis’ personal shopper, Vern. On Ugly Betty no gossip report would be complete without the latest from Alec as fashion reporter extraordinaire Suzuki St Pierre.
Audiences first discovered Alec on Broadway in the Tony Award winning production of M. Butterfly.
He guest starred on over 40 television series, including Switched at Birth, Alias, Friends, Roseanne, Seinfeld and NYPD Blue. Alec played network television’s very first gay asian series regular role on the short lived CBS sitcom Some Of My Best Friends. He then starred in four seasons of the UPN sitcom Half and Half. He has also appeared as his own very fine self on The Tonight Show, RuPaul’s Drag Race, Showville and UnCabaret on Amazon.
Film audiences howled at Alec as N’Cream in the wildly popular drag queen musical Connie and Carla. Other films include Playing By Heart, Marley and Me and You Don’t Mess with The Zohan. Alec’s Wisecrack stand up comedy special premiered on LOGO in 2005 and has since gained a huge cult following. He is the subject of the 2013 award winning documentary Baby Daddy.
Alec has entertained live audiences with Rosie O’Donnell aboard her R Family Cruises and all over the world with Atlantis Cruises. Alec was awarded the prestigious Davidson Valentini GLAAD Award for promoting equal rights for the LGBT community. A tireless fundraiser Alec has toured the country on behalf of The Human Rights Campaign and The Matthew Shepard foundation earning him the unofficial title of “America’s Gaysian Sweetheart”.Learn More
