Dress down. If attending late (21:30) show, ask if you can come early and dine upstairs to have credit towards the $20 pp minimum. It's a vastly nicer environment in which to dine.

It was wonderfully hilarious I just couldn't stop laughing. I would highly recommend this show to anyone with or without kids. Gay or straight I would go again and take more friends.

Alec Mapa: Baby Daddy is an outrageous evening of stories and stand. Join “America’s Gaysian Sweetheart” Mapa as he hilariously recounts his latest heart stopping adventure on the road to fatherhood. Recently, Alec’s life was turned upside-down when he and his husband, producer Jamison Hebert (Bullied), adopted a five-year-old boy. How do you go from stand-up gigs, red carpets, gay cruises, and circuit parties to being a responsible car pool driving, P.T.A. member? Find out on this fast-paced ride with sudden dips and turns!

Ellen Degeneres has called Alec Mapa “smart, hilarious and funny." Variety has said “Alec Mapa is a freak. No one should be this talented.” With uproarious live performances and ground breaking television roles, Mapa has entertained audiences worldwide.

Alec’s television career has gone from desperate to ugly with not one but two 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 was 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 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. 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 stand up comedy specials Wisecrack and No Fates, Femmes, or Asians continue to air on Logo and have gained him a huge cult following.

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.”
