Comedian/Actor Arsenio Hall says; “Aida has something I never had when starting my stand up career. She has tremendous self-confidence! That combined with being funny should be lethal.” Her comedy is a colorful splash in the bland world of affairs, becoming the first and only Latina to ever appear on BET’s “Comic View: One Mic Stand”.
Currently wowing audiences on the L.A. Comedy scene with her regular appearances at The Improv, Laugh Factory, Jon Lovitz Comedy Club this Puerto Rican Latina is a regular opener on the road for Russell Peters and has toured abroad performing for the troops on USO Tours.
