Following Madrigal’s special will be the premieres of ANDREW SANTINO: HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE on Friday, June 2 and ERIK GRIFFIN: THE UGLY TRUTH on Friday, July 7.

        In “AL MADRIGAL: SHRIMPIN’ AIN’T EASY,” Madrigal tackles relatable topics like cilantro politics, parenting, anger management, dark family secrets and an unbelievable tale of seafood gone wrong. Directed by Neal Brennan (Chappelle’s Show), the former Daily Show correspondent’s unfiltered commentary takes aim at his kids, Yelp reviews and a revenge-fueled ballet recital.
