When Aida was about 7 years old she pointed at Johnny Carson on the television and told her mother, "I want to do that when I grow up." Her mother slapped her on the backside and said, "That’s not for girls." Since, she has rebelled against most of her mother’s wishes.
Aida Rodriguez's "girl next door" style of comedy has set her apart in a world that chooses to acknowledge funny over double-standards, catching the eye of some of the most recognizable names in comedy, she is creating a lane of her own.
Growing up in the inner city of Miami, Florida she understood how to survive in a world of deviants and predators, turning those into the most lively comedy act.
Look for Aida this fall on daytime television as one of the hosts of Hot Topics with Judge Joe Brown. She can also be seen on this season of Nickelodeon’s NickMom Night Out and Parental Discretion and on nuvoTV's Stand Up and Deliver. She is the host of The Wedding Zinger, a comedy roast special for the nuvoTV network and also one of the unique voices on the channel's talking heads style show Latino 101 alongside Edward James Olmos. Aida is Judge Joe Brown’s co-host on his radio series Real Talk and hosted Manic Minute Meals, a bilingual comedy cooking show for the net.
In addition to her comedic chops, Aida is a dynamic actor, writer and producer. Aida has written and produced four feature films that all have international distribution; The Greatest Song is one of Image Entertainment’s top sellers. Aida is one of the stars of the dramatic, award winning web series Illegal. She is one of the leads in the feature film Single Track, which is currently in production.
Selected to host the Miss California Latina Pageant, she is the first comedian chosen to host in over 20 years. Aida is a regular on all of Hollywood’s hottest comedy stages and has been on several USO and MWR tours, making her an international performer following her dream to also be Bob Hope when she grows up.
Comedian/actor Arsenio Hall says, "Aida has something I never had when starting my stand up career. She has tremendous self-confidence! That combined with being funny should be lethal. Her comedy is a colorful splash in the bland world of affairs."
