Al Madrigal‘s stand-up comedy blends political satire with personal stories of marriage, family, and fatherhood. Madrigal is best known for his role as the “Senior Latino” correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewartwhere he helped shed light on racism and anti-immigrant sentiments in the U.S. and had the chance to “drive tanks, swim with manatees, go to Mexico City and make a fake drug deal.” Since leaving The Daily Show, Madrigal has been busy doing stand-up; releasing a comedy special Shrimpin’ Aint’ Easy, in which he applies his comedic insight to topics like “cilantro politics,” anger management, and a wild tale of seafood revenge; and co-founding the All Things Comedy podcast network with Bill Burr. Madrigal currently stars in Showtime’s I’m Dying Up Here, a series about stand-up in the 1970s.
