Alec Mapa: Baby Daddy
It’s rare that a film can successfully combine raunchy sex jokes with heartfelt stories of love and compassion, but Alec Mapa does just that in his new hour-and-17-minute documentary. The film chronicles a day in the life of the comedian — from sun-up to sun-down — including a sold-out stand-up show of Mapa’s. Throughout the routine, jokes about gay porn give way to perceptive stories about the American adoption process for gay couples. The part that had me laughing the hardest: Mapa’s rendition of Miley Cyrus’s “Party in the USA,” sung like Bette Davis. Fri., Oct. 10, 5 p.m., Tampa Theatre. — Devon Crumpacker
