Stand-up comedian and actor Al Madrigal will perform at Northwest Missouri State University at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 24, in the Charles Johnson Theater located in the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building.

The performance is sponsored by Northwest’s Student Activities Council and is open to the public. Tickets are available now at the Student Services Center in the Administration Building. Tickets are free for students and $5 for the public.

With more than 15 years as a stand-up, Madrigal has found success as an actor, correspondent and podcaster. He stars as Andy, a thoroughly whipped stay-at-home dad, alongside Minnie Driver and David Walton, in the hit NBC comedy “About a Boy” and has been a correspondent on the Emmy Award-winning “The Daily Show with John Stewart” since 2011.

Madrigal was named Best Stand-Up Comedian by the HBO/U.S. Comedy Arts Festival and has been a regular on television with numerous appearances on Comedy Central. He also has appeared on “Lopez Tonight,” “The Late Show with Craig Ferguson” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

In 2012, Madrigal and Bill Burr launched All Things Comedy (ATC), a podcast and video network founded, owned and operated entirely by comedians. On ATC, Madrigal and fellow comedian Maz Jobrani host “Minivan Men,” a weekly podcast for regular people with children.

“Madrigal has had college experiences just like the ones we are all making right now and he is fantastic at portraying them in lighthearted comedy,” said Student Activities Council Director of Special Events Madison Yarbrough.
