Biography

Since becoming "The Daily Show's" (Comedy Central, 1996-) first-ever Senior Latino Correspondent in 2011, writer and comedian Al Madrigal transitioned seamlessly into the faux-news network satirical stable of writers. A latecomer to stand-up comedy, he worked for his family's human resources firm for over 10 years, firing more than 1,500 people in the process before trading in his 9-5 punch card for the comedy stage in his late 20s. Mining comedy material as a half-Mexican, half-Sicilian married father of two, Madrigal's skewering of Hispanic stereotypes and political absurdity paved the way for his future gig at Comedy Central.
