Aida Rodriguez is a comedian, actor and writer. Lauded by
Esquire Magazine as “raucously funny,” she has become a favorite with
fans and critics alike. With her first hour-long standup special now
streaming and her own TV series in development, both at MAX, Aida is
bound for the comedy stratosphere. In November 2021, Aida’s first hour
standup special Fighting Words premiered on HBOMax. In the special, the
comedian takes to the stage to address today’s audiences about
cancel-culture and the social issues of the day, not just because
they’re ripped from the headlines, but because they are in the pages
torn out of her personal life. Additionally, Rodriguez is developing her
own half hour comedy series with HBOMax based on her own incredible
life story, which includes surviving two kidnappings, sexual abuse, and a
period of homelessness. Co-written and ExecutiveProduced by Rodriguez,
Chris Case (Showtime’s Flatbush Misdemeanors) and Nastaran Dibai
(Netflix’s Dear White People), the project examines the struggle of
a comedian (Rodriguez) who is trying to kick start a career while
raising two very different teenagers on her own over multiple time
zones. It is an uplifting story of survival and triumph in the face of a
darkly funny Miami inner-city upbringing, where she learned
skills that allowed her to thrive and endure.
In 2020, Aida headlined the HBO LatinX standup special Entrenos while
also appearing in Showtime’s Shaquille O’Neal Presents: All Star Comedy
Jam, one of only four women to have performed on the series in its 15 seasons. Prior to that, she
had her own half-hour special on Netflix’s hit comedy series They Ready,
Executive Produced by Tiffany Haddish and Wanda Sykes. In reviews
Decider gushed that the special “will have you laughing, crying and begging for more” and Esquire Magazine declared
“This is Rodriguez’s genius—using comedy to turn pain into progress, to
give voice to the voiceless, and to laugh instead of cry.”
In addition to her TV projects, Aida was handpicked by director
Taylor Hackford for his feature film “The Comedian” starring Robert De
Niro. She is also the five-time host of PBS’ Imagen Awards, which
recognizes and rewards creative excellence of Latinos in television and
film. She is a guest writer for Buzzfeed as well as a regular
Commentator on the popular online progressive political talk show The
Young Turks. Rodriguez hosts her own podcast, Truth Serum, which is an interactive weekly wrap-up
show covering the week’s hottest topics, where inclusivity and diversity
are a standard, not an initiative.
A long-time favorite on the standup circuit, Aida was a finalist on
NBC’s Last Comic Standing and has been featured on several comedy
fan-favorite TV series, including Comedy Central’s This Week at the
Comedy Cellar, HBO’s Pause with Sam Jay, and TBS’ Tournament of Laughs.
She tours the country performing her distinct brand of poignant and
insightful comedy to sold-out audiences, inviting her longtime fans to
laugh hard, think hard, and feel hard.
