Al Madrigal is no stranger to Arizona, what with his coverage of Tucson’s Mexican-American Studies Ban, SB 1070, and government gridlock. Now The Daily Show’s senior Latino correspondent returns to the Valley with some breaking new comedy. While many know Madrigal from his Comedy Central appearances, including his special Why is the Rabbit Crying?, the comedian/actor has also made appearances CBS’ Welcome to the Captain and Gary, Unmarried, NBC’s Free Agents, as well as The Tonight Show, Conan, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and Lopez Tonight. When he’s not on stage or on television, Madrigal is making it to the airwaves with his All Things Comedy Network, which was founded by him and fellow comedian Bill Burr.
