My Ugly Mouth is a collection of writings about life, the pop culture that made me, and the obsessions that keep me up at night.

Hailed by BroadwayWorld as a “black hole of self-absorption,” I am a Filipino American playwright with social anxiety, bipolar disorder, and a fat ass.

My plays have been developed nationwide, from the renowned Geffen Playhouse to the legendary Samuel French Off Off Broadway Festival, and they are published by Samuel French, Smith and Kraus, and Astringent Press. My romantic comedy The Bottoming Process was both a critical darling (“Pilapil’s voice and commentary shined!”—Los Angeles Times) and a threat (“diatribes against white people can offend.”—Stage Raw).
