Warning: contains swears, sensitive subject matter, and questionable parenting
Aida Rodriguez is many things: an alto singer, a salsa dancer, an actress, and even an event host. Perhaps most importantly, though, she’s a single mother of two. And perhaps most obviously, she’s a comedian.
The minute Rodriguez opens her mouth it becomes obvious that her in-your-face, logically warped, unabashedly raw views on parenting and family would create plenty of material for the stage. And, in fact, they’ve created so much material that she’s been featured on Nickelodeon’s Mom’s Night Out, NuVo TV’s Stand Up and Deliver, and several USO tours. Most recently, though, she was a finalist on season eight of NBC’s Last Comic Standing, where she inspired Keenan Ivory Wayans to say that she’s “like a dose of truth serum.”
Punch Line Sacramento
Surrounded by a sea of tables drenched in red light, the central stage of Sacramento Punch Line presents a lineup of the country’s top touring comedians. For 20 years, the club has been canning the cackles of audiences, featuring sidesplitting stars such as D.L. Hughley, Dave Chappelle, and Chris Rock before they broke onto the national stage. With a first-come, first-served policy, audience members can arrive early at the intimate theater to snag a table close to the stage. Before the show begins, servers take drink orders for beer, cocktails, soda, or sparkling water.
