Paul Rodríguez’s exclusive video commercial!avatar

with 2 comments

Comedian Paul Rodríguez has been in the news a lot lately, but it’s not because he’s been promoting his upcoming comedy show, ‘Paul Rodríguez and Friends: Comedy Rehab.’

Instead of spending recent weeks chatting with late-night television hosts and plugging his new program, Rodríguez has been passionately advocating for water. Rodríguez, who is also the chairman of the Latino Water Coalition, led the four-day March for Water from April 14 – April 17, and he was back in the Valley on Wednesday to promote a Latino Water Coalition event scheduled for Saturday, May 9.

During an interview with Vida en el Valle on Wednesday afternoon at North India Bar and Grill in Clovis, Rodríguez said he just has not had enough time to both promote his upcoming show and fight for water. “If I try to do that, I’ll be lousy at both things,” he said.

So water has become his priority. And he said leading the 30-mile march, and staying  involved in the water cause, has been the most rewarding – and the most time-consuming – experience of his life. “This is the best thing I’ve ever done,” he said.

Since he hasn’t been promoting his show much, I invited Rodríguez to do an impromptu video commercial. (For a guy who is constantly spitting out one-liners, this was an easy task.) So check out the video – and be sure to tune into his show!

Paul Rodríguez and Friends: Comedy Rehab’ premieres on Comedy Central on Friday, May 1 at 11 p.m.

  1. Okay if this video is a sort of whats-to-come in Paul’s Comedy Rehab, I’ll have to tune in for sure.
    By the way, I know a lot of people, too many to list here, that can use a little rehabilitation. Make that a lot of rehabilitation!
