Alec Mapa
Alec Mapa
Ellen Degeneres has called him “smart, hilarious and funny.” Variety has said, “Alec Mapa is a freak. No one should be this talented.” With uproarious live performances and groundbreaking television roles, actor and comedian Alec Mapa has entertained audiences worldwide in every imaginable medium.

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.

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.”

Alec lives in Los Angeles with his husband Jamie and his son Zion.
Kira Soltanovich
Kira Soltanovich
Kira Soltanovich developed much of her Amazon Special "You Did This To Me" at UnCabaret while she was hormone crazed and pregnant. She also appears in our Amazon series.

Kira has also appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Set List, 3rd Rock From The Sun, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. She's a recurring stand-up comic on the E! Network, VH1's All Access, and Love Lounge and was a series regular for four seasons on the Oxygen and Nationally syndicated show, Girls Behaving Badly.

Kira headlines in comedy clubs and colleges throughout the country, and has toured the world entertaining the troops in USO shows.

Kira has been a winner, finalist and semi-finalist in a myriad of comedy competitions and festivals, including Comedy Central's Laugh Riots, California's Funniest Female, Seattle International Comedy Festival, and the Boston Comedy Festival. Kira will perform at the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in the summer of 2005.

Based on her writing and acting, she was selected to be a part of the ABC Comedy Development Showcase where she was named "Hottest new writer". She has shot several pilots this year, including a Pilot Presentation for Comedy Central. You might also hear Kira as the voice of "Carla", a teenage know-it-all, on the animated series, Iggy Cool.

She grew up in San Francisco during a time when there were bad neighborhoods, cheap coffee and it wasn't ironic to ride the cable cars.

She began her comedy career back in 1998 right after asking her Russian immigrant parents if they were copacetic with her desires to become a stand up comedian. After her mother and father confessed "It's not like you're smart enough to be a doctor" Kira took that as their blessing to pursue her dreams and she's never looked back.
