One of the Original Latin Kings of Comedy, Mexican-American standup comedian-actor Paul Rodriguez first popped up on the pop culture radar beginning in the ’80s, eventually scoring roles in flicks like Born in East L.A.,D.C. Cab (both Folio Weekly guilty pleasures), and his own directorial debut, A Million to Juan. The 61-year-old Rodriguez was rated No. 74 on Comedy Central’s “100 Greatest Standups of All Time” and is a noted conservationist. Rodriquez is also a Republican, so we’re curious as to his views on Trump’s imminent “Wall of Welcome” running along the U.S.-Mexico border. Oh, well!
