Aida Rodriguez… She ready!
The 41-year-old Puerto Rican and Dominican American comedian appears in the launch date teaser for Tiffany Haddish’s Netflix curated stand-up comedy special, which will premiere in August.
Rodriguez, who rose to acclaim after competing on the eighth season of Last Comic Standing, is one of thesix comedians personally chosen by Haddish for Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready.
In addition to Rodriguez, the lone Latina in the group, the collection of specials also features comics Chaunté Wayans, April Macie, Tracey Ashley,Flame Monroeand Marlo Williams.
Haddish, who hosts and executive-produces each half-hour episode, shares a history with each of the six comedians after working together in the stand-up scene or on television. She believes the industry often excludes women, people of color, and LGBTQ performers and as such wants to put this diverse group of comedians in the spotlight.
Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready will begin streaming globally on Netflix on August 13.
In addition to her appearance on Last Comic Standing, Rodriguez has worked as a co-host who assists in delivering news and commentary on The Young Turks online platform.
