"Funny and touching. Alec Mapa: Baby Daddy is so adorable Brad and Angelina are trying to adopt it."
- Joan Rivers
"[Mapa's] show has an underlying positive message that gay parenting is just parenting."
- Frank Lowe, The Advocate
"Mapa riffed a lot on the joys and challenges of being a father and managed to be both touching and funny..."
- Michael Musto, The Village Voice
"It's rare that an evening of comedy can make you laugh hysterically and cry in the same hour."
- Suzy Evans, Backstage
"In comedy, as Mapa clearly knows, pain is never far off the horizon, so when he experiences the emotional roller coaster of the adoption process, and the universal agonies and ecstasies of parenthood, expect to shed a tear or two."
- David Lewis, SF Gate
"This man is a scream. Such a talent, and that talent is showcased wonderfully in the documentary
Alec Mapa: Baby Daddy directed by Andrea James."- Greg Hernandez, Greg in Hollywood
