Revered as one of the first Latin Kings of Comedy, Rodriguez has spent over 40 years making audiences laugh all over the world in English and Spanish. His first big break came while doing comedy warm-ups for Norman Lear’s show “Gloria” and has had a successful career since then with starring roles and featured appearances in more than 40 films and countless television shows and comedy specials.
As an accomplished writer, director and producer for television, motion pictures and feature shows, Rodriguez executive produced in the comedy concert film “The Original Latin Kings of Comedy,” in which he starred with Cheech Marin, George Lopez and Carlos Mencia. In addition to many other successful television and film projects, Rodriguez also wrote, directed and starred in the comedy, “A Million to Juan” and six comedy specials for HBO including “Loco Slam,” “Live in San Quentin” and “Idiots and Armadillos,” which he also executive produced.
Langston is best known for his comic performances on “The Gong Show” usually appearing with a paper bag over his head and thus became “The Unknown Comic.” Langston’s career began in 1970 when he appeared on “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In” and proceeded with appearances on many more series, including “The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour,” “The Hudson Brothers Razzle Dazzle Show,” “The Wolfman Show” and “The Bobby Vinton Show.” Additionally, Langston wrote material for Joan Rivers, Jim Carrey, Ruth Buzzi and many other comedians as well created comedic situations for “Candid Camera” and appeared in several of his own segments.
