Madrigal has a list of network television credits including appearances on the late night circuit on shows like Conan, The Tonight Show and Chelsea Lately. HBO’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen has also named him “Best Stand-Up Comedian”.

To interact will all you fans, Madrigal will have an “Ask a Professional Comedian” session on Tumblr and will also live tweet the Comedy Central premiere from his Twitter account @almadrigal.
