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 of
NBC’s Last Comic Standing. Aida Rodriguez’s ͞edgy, raw and in your face͟ 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 serum͟.
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 some of the nation’s most iconic comedy stages.

programs including but not limited to, Comedy Central’s The Nightly Show, two-time host of
the PBS’s Imagen Awards, Fox’s Laughs, Nickelodeon’s Mom’s Night Out, Parental Discretion,

Hackford which will be released December 2016 and will appear on Showtime this fall as the
Shaq’s All Star Comedy Jam’s first Latina.
When she’s not on your television or a local stage, you can catch Aida following another
childhood dream of becoming Bob Hope, Aida serves yearly on USO and MWR tours; making
her an international performer
