EP 203: Al Madrigal on Comedy, Trump, and Avoiding Cilantro

Comedian Al Madrigal (The Daily Show, I'm Dying Up Here) talks about exploring the dark side of the 70's stand-up comedy boom on his new Showtime series, why he’s resisted being pidgeonholed as a latino comic, and why he thinks white guys actually have it tougher in comedy. He discusses his audition for The Daily Show, and faking a border crossing as a field correspondent. Plus seafood as revenge, why you might want to avoid cilantro for the next 4 years, and Al Madrigal on Donald Trump and the border wall.
