Monroe’s creative and charismatic comedic voice has created a buzz within the New York comedy circuit. His intelligent and hysterical perspective resonates and has earned him respect among his peers.

Monroe is on his way to becoming the type of comedian he admires—one who says exactly what he wants, the way he wants to say it.

Aida Rodriguez
Aida Rodriguez
When Aida was a teenager one of her relatives declared that she would
end up a statistic, she did, she is 1 out of the 10 to make it to the finals of
NBC’s Last Comic Standing.

apart in a world that celebrates funny over double standards. Catching the
eye of some of the most recognizable names in Comedy, she is creating a
lane of her own. Roseanne Barr doesn’t understand why Aida doesn’t have
her own show yet and Keenan Ivory Wayans told the world that she is “like
a dose of truth serum”.

As a single mom of two, Aida has honed and nurtured her craft all while
juggling the daily grind and stresses of family and career. While providing
endless material, family remains the heart of the Aida Rodriguez
experience. “Suddenly, the pages of my journal have become a laughing matter!”
