ADDISON -- A single mom, successful stand-up comedian, and a finalist on the popular show "Last Comic Standing," Aida Rodriguez sat down with us during a recent swing through DFW at the Addison Improv.

And as we found out, she does it all and doesn't care what you think.

"We've been handcuffed, or I would say muzzled by political correctness," Rodriguez said. "Society has been castrated by political correctness and I think that there's a difference between saying something that is inappropriate and hurtful versus someone that is just being honest."

She says she's been influenced by many people but really loved the work of George Carlin and Richard Pryor.

Rodriguez is currently on tour. You can see if she'll be in a city near you here.
