Chicago Pride: Alec Mapa: Baby Daddy




Andrea James (US, 2013, 78 min)

Actor and comedian Alec Mapa (UGLY BETTY, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES) shares hilarious and heartfelt stories about how his life has changed since he and his husband adopted a five year old through the foster care system. No topic is off limits in this raunchy yet moving film of his award-winning one-man show: hosting gay porn award shows, a midlife crisis, musical theatre, reality television, bodily functions, married sex life, stage moms vs. baseball dads, and the joys, challenges, and unexpected surprises of fatherhood. ALEC MAPA: BABY DADDY includes behind-the-scenes footage of his family’s home life on a busy show day, which gives special insight into the tender truth behind many of his hilarious jokes.
