The Meeting* was named among the Top nightclub shows of 2013 by Time Out New York, and received the 2012 Bistro Award for “Comedy Artistry” and a 2011 MAC Award nomination for Best Male Comedy Performance.
He was described by Michael Musto in The Village Voice as “Oscar Wilde meets Whoopi Goldberg.” In a recent story for Edge New York, Steve Weinstein said ”Comedian, raconteur, performing artist, gay rights activist and sexual outlaw: I’m not sure Justin Sayre is classifiable. The veteran performer is on his way to becoming a Downtown Manhattan institution along the lines of Charles Ludlum or Charles Busch.” Justin is a child of Forty Fort, Pennsylvania who demonstrated a supernatural instinct for “camp” at an early age. With a voice straight out the MGM finishing school for girls, he moved to New York believing it was still 1947. He was terribly misinformed.
As an actor, he has worked and studied with some of the finest professionals in the city. As a comedian, Sayre is regular guest at Homo-Comicus at the Gotham Comedy Club and contributing writer to Murray Hill’s ShowBiz on MTVX. As a gay, Justin has excelled at scarf placement, devilish quips, and a healthy but firm love of the American musical.
An evening of his short plays, Justin Sayre Is Alive and Well… Writing – called one of the “Top 10 Events on the New York Stage” by the New York Daily News – sold out two shows at Ars Nova in 2012. Sayre’s play, The Click of the Lock, was a finalist for the Eugene O’Neill Theater Conference and debuted at The Cherry Lane Theatre starring Randy Harrison. Sayre is a contributor to The Huffington Post and Flavorwire, as well offering playful and witty love advice at The Date Report.
“The Gay Agenda” – his debut comedy/spoken word album – was released in Fall 2014.
Anthony has performed at some lovely comedy festivals such as Hell Yes Fest, World Series of Comedy, Laugh Riot Grrrl and the Scruffy City Comedy Festival. Anthony
In a comedic landscape that is often wrought with sarcasm, self deprecation, and cynicism, Eliot Chang is a welcome relief! His point of view is honest and real yet marked by a fun positive energy that is genuine and refreshing. (That is something that sets him apart - the fact that he is still funny with this attitude and energy that other people try to put forth and it comes off as an act). He's simply fun to watch and makes me laugh. "

Currently that medium is television. Alec’s latest comedy special Alec Mapa: Baby Daddy premieres on Showtime June 12, 2015. Based on his award-winning solo show, Alec Mapa: Baby Daddy hilariously, irreverently chronicles Alec’s journey to fatherhood via foster adoption. TV audiences currently enjoy Alec in his recurring roles on ABC Family’s Switched At Birth and Lifetime’s Devious Maids.
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 CBS sitcom Some Of My Best Friends. He then starred in four seasons of the UPN sitcom Half & Half. Alec went on to appear in the ABC hit Ugly Betty and was a frequent guest star on Desperate Housewives. 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 & Me, and You Don’t Mess with the Zohan.
An accomplished stand-up comedian, Alec’s Wisecrack comedy special premiered on LOGO in 2005 and has since become a cult favorite. His follow-up comedy specials America’s Gaysian Sweetheart and No Fats, Femmes or Asians aired on the Here! And LOGO networks respectively.
