Alejandra Bogue Gómez (Mexico City, 1965) is a Mexican actress, comedian, television host, and producer.

Career[edit]

Bogue's career began in the early 1980s as a dancer in various nightclubs in Mexico City and Acapulco. In the early 1990s she made her debut in the Teatro Universitario performing the play Baal by German modernist playwright Bertolt Brecht, directed by Jose Luis Cruz. In 1993 she won an award from the Mexican Association of Theatre Critics (AMCT).[2]

Bogue continued to perform on stage throughout the 1990s. She worked with Mexican stars including Patricia Reyes Spindola, Adriana Roel and Darío T. Pie. She then returned to the nightclub with Las Hermanas Vampiro. Bogue met the Mexican television host, actor and journalist Horacio Villalobos in 2001 through the transgender singer and actor Daniel Vives. In 2001 she began to collaborate with Villalobos in his television program Valvula de Escape on the music channel Telehit.[2]

In 2001, inspired by Saturday Night Live, Villalobos produced Desde Gayola, a segment of sketches in which, according to Villalobos, "is to make the audience laugh and take it to think through the comedy about the world in which we live.[3]

Bogue played the characters La Tesorito (a parody of Mexican actress and singer Laura León), Tearruina Fernández (imitation of Mexican television host Talina Fernandez), and Sonia Infame (imitation of the Mexican actress Sonia Infante). Bogue officially entered in the television group Televisa in February 2002, also obtaining the post of Coordinator of Costume in Telehit. Although Desde Gayola started in television as part of Valvula de Escape, also toured the country with stage shows. Bogue participated in "Había una vez...Desde Gayola", between 2003 and 2005.

In early 2006, Bogue left Desde Gayola, apparently for personal and work differences with Villalobos. Desde Gayola, finally is cancelled by Telehit in August of that year, claiming to have worked in poor conditions and have no support from the company.[4] However, Bogue continued to work as Costume Coordinator of the channel.

In late 2006, Bogue joins to the program Guau!, a television magazine format produced and broadcast by Telehit since 2005.

In 2008, Bogue produced and stared in the leading role of the Telehit sitcom ¡Que show con Alejandra Bogue! on which she acts, sings, and dances. The TV show is a mosaic of sketches with a series of characters.

This show also features versions of famous videos, interpreted by Bogue self. She doing impersonations of figures like Madonna, Annie Lennox and Nina Hagen among many others. Another aspect of the show is that it serves as a forum for the various social moves in the country, as it gives room for artistic expression and alternative films and videos, as well as supporting major artists of the cultural scene in need diffusion as: Fashion designers, writers and dancers from the National Dance Company, to name a few.[5]

In 2010, Bogue is chosen to be part of the Mexican stage version of the film Todo sobre mi madre of Pedro Almodóvar in the role of the transsexual character of Agrado (interpreted in the film by the Spanish transgender actress Antonia San Juan). For the role, many transsexual actresses auditioned, but Francisco Franco, director of the stage play, and finally chose Bogue.[6] The stage play was a box office success in the Teatro de los Insurgentes in Mexico City. Besides Bogue, featured performances of Lisa Owen Margarita Gralia and Ana Claudia Talancon.
