Martina Aileen de las Alas , professionally known as Ai-Ai de las Alas (born November 11, 1964), 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!)".
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. 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. 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. 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.
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. She has also acted in the films Ang Cute Ng Ina Mo, Ang Tanging Ina N'yong Lahat and Pasukob.
She also released her first album with Star Records entitled Ang Tanging Ina Nyo, featuring six novelty tunes, with tracks including "Tanging Ina Nyo", "Volta", "Dance-phabet", "Tong Twalya", "Si Manloloko" and "Super Papa". On November 4, 2014, De las Alas was interviewed by TV Patrol on set of a music video filming on the night of November 3. During the November 9 episode of ASAP 19, she premiered her song "Nandito Lang Ako" and revealed that she will be going under the stage name of ADA. She stated that she was inspired by Jennifer Lopez's nickname J.Lo.
Return to GMA Network
After almost two decades of working with ABS-CBN, De las Alas decided to return to her home network GMA Network where she used to work as co-host on the noontime shows Lunch Date and Salo-Salo Together (SST). On her return, she inked a two-year exclusive contract. One of the deciding factors for her move was the lack of project from the Kapamilya Network It would be recalled that her last show in ABS-CBN was the remake of Dyesebel alongside Anne Curtis.
Her grand homecoming was celebrated in the Sunday-noontime show Sunday All Stars where she was warmly welcomed as the newest Kapuso. As her first project, Delas Alas joined the cast of the GMA's Telebabad series Let The Love Begin where she played the cool DJ mother of Ruru Madrid. The show aired its final episode last August 7, 2015.
De las Alas is also one of the main hosts and comediennes in the newest Sunday afternoon comedy variety show Sunday PINASaya alongside her best friend who she fondly calls as "kambal" (twin sister) Marian Rivera and the dynamic comedy duo Jose Manalo and Wally Bayola. Sunday PINASaya is making waves with its success in the ratings game, challenging its rival show, the longest running musical variety show ASAP 20 of ABS-CBN Corporation.
De las Alas is also set to host the new celebrity talk show of GMA Network entitled Celebri-TV which will replace the longest running celebrity talk show Startalk. She will be hosting alongside Joey De Leon, Lolit Solis, and Ricky Lo who are also the hosts of Startalk. It is set to premier on September 19, 2015.
Aside from television shows in the Kapuso Network, De las Alas also joined international shows in Canada and the United States of America through GMA Pinoy TV. She was one of the guests in the 10th anniversary of GMA Pinoy TV.
After the successful team-up in the Metro Manila Film Festival movie Enteng ng Ina Mo in 2011, De Las Alas is set to do another MMFF movie entry with Vic Sotto in 2015. The film with the working title "Romcom-in mo Ako" is a co-production of Sotto's M-Zet TV Productions and Octo-Arts Films. This will be directed by Jose Javier Reyes. The phenomenal Eat Bulaga! love team of Alden Richards and Maine "Yaya Dub" Mendoza , better known as AlDub, will also be part of this romantic-comedy movie.
