The perfect Sunday night entertainment is kind of a tall order. You want to have fun but also something to get you ready for the week. That’s what UnCabaret delivers every Sunday. This Sunday, August 21, Beth Lapides hosts…
Alec Mapa is so bighearted and openhearted and has such a compelling story that it’s no wonder they call him America’s Gayasian Sweetheart. You may know him from Ugly Betty, Two Broke Girls, Jane the Virgin, or Desperate Housewives. Or from his Showtime special Alec Mapa: Baby Daddy based on his award-winning solo show that irreverently chronicles his journey to fatherhood via foster adoption. But get to know him better. Well worth it. We heart Alec Mapa.
Quinn Cummings The Oscar nominated actress who played The Girl in Neil Simon’s Goodbye Girl. She continued acting, notably in the TV drama Family. And then she was lured into the world of writing. She has published three acclaimed books including Year of Learning Dangerously about homeschooling her daughter. Quinn is our new friend, via Alec Mapa, and we are quite enamored of her.
Byron Bowers Master of the slow burn! One of the very few stand-up comedians to have appeared on Jimmy Kimmel, Byron has also toured nationally with Dave Chappelle, Hannibal Buress, Eric Andre and shared the spotlight at the Oddball Comedy Festival in 2013 with Louis CK, Jim Gaffigan and Sarah Silverman.
Eliot Glazer is known to TV fans for his work as a story editor on Younger and for his recurring role on Broad City. Digitally, Eliot contributed to Billy Eichner’s Billy on the Street and consulted on Hulu’s Difficult People. He also writes, produces and stars in the Above Average sketch web series Eliot’s Sketch Pad and It Gets Betterish and Haunting Rendtions, the latter which he developed into a live show. As if he weren’t prolific enough, his book of eassays My Parents Were Awesome was published by Random House.
Del Shores Our friend Del Shores (Queer as Folk, Sordid Lives, Southern Baptist Sissies) has written, directed and produced film, television as well as theatre. He has just finished shooting his most recent film and we look forward to hearing his very latest!
Matthew Patrick Davis is perhaps the tallest performer to have graced the UnCabaret stage. Matthew is a versatile actor/musician/composer and you’ve seen him in The Sarah Silverman Program, Comedy Bang! Bang! and Community. He has bridged the gap between The Kennedy Center and his in Coke commercials. That;s the kind of thing you can do when you are tall. He also has written a musical called The Compete (Abridged) History of America. That’s a tall order.
