When Aida was a teenager one of her relatives declared that she would end up a statistic, she did! She is 1 out of the 10 to make it to the finals on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing”.
Aida Rodriguez’s “edgy, raw and in your face” style of comedy has set her apart in a world that celebrates funny over double standards. Catching the eye of some of the most recognizable names in Comedy, she is creating a lane of her own. Roseanne Barr doesn’t understand why Aida doesn’t have her own show yet and Keenan Ivory Wayans told the world that she is “like a dose of truth serum”, she is stealing the nation.
As a single mom of two, Aida has honed and nurtured her craft all while juggling the daily grind and stresses of family and career. While providing endless material, family remains the heart of the Aida Rodriguez experience. “Suddenly, the pages of my journal have become a laughing matter!”
Aida is a regular on the nation’s most iconic and historic comedy stages across the country. She has also hosted and/or been featured on numerous television and radio broadcast programs including but not limited to, Comedy Central’s The Nightly Show, 2 time host of the PBS’s Annual Imagen Awards, Fox’s Laughs, the Daytime Television show Hot Topics with Judge Joe Brown, Nickelodeon’s Mom’s Night Out, Parental Discretion, as well as NuVo TV’s Stand Up and Deliver and serves as one of the unique voices on the network’s talking heads style show Latino 101 alongside Edward James Olmos.
Aida Rodriguez is also breaking down barriers in the world of comedy. Previously selected to host the Miss California Latina Pageant, Aida was the first comedian chosen to host in over 20 years. Following her dream as a little girl to be Bob Hope when she grew up, Aida has also been on several USO and MWR tours, making her an international performer.
