Martina Aileen de las Alas, professionally known as Ai-Ai de las Alas, is a Filipino actress of film and television, dubbed as the "Philippine Queen of Comedy" and "Comedy Concert Queen". De las Alas first gained nationwide recognition for her movie Ang Tanging Ina which became a blockbuster hit. Due to the movie's popularity, it received a TV series spin-off with Alas again taking the lead role. The movie eventually spawned two sequels; "Ang Tanging Ina N'yong Lahat" and "Ang Tanging Ina Mo (Last na 'To!)".

Personal life[edit]

De las Alas is the daughter of Engr. Rosendo de las Alas (1920–2008) and Gregoria de las Alas née Hernández (died 30 December 2013), and was later adopted by her spinster aunt, Justa de las Alas.[5][6][7] She earned a Mass Communication degree from Far Eastern University (FEU) in 1985.

She was married to actor Miguel Vera and had two children; de las Alas also had a son from a previous relationship.[3] Before acting, she worked as a sales lady in a department store and also performed as a stand-up comic in comedy bars around Metro Manila.[8] She married 28-year old American businessman Jed Salang on April 3, 2013. Her marriage to Salang, who is 20 years her junior, ended after a month, with de las Alas confirming their separation on May 19.[9][10]

Career[edit]

De las Alas has done several movies including blockbuster hit Ang Tanging Ina produced by Star Cinema. It was followed by more comedy films like Volta where she played a superhero, which spun off into a television series. In the noon-time television show MTB: Ang Saya Saya she was one of the lead hosts. In prime-time teleseries, she played an important role in the TV remake of Bituing Walang Ningning as Dorina's mother.
