Rodriguez attempts to transform painful episodes of her life into comedy material, while also addressing difficult issues such as misogyny and racism.
 
Aida was a top ten finalist in the eighth season of NBC's Last Comic Standing (2014), but was eliminated in the seventh episode of the season after losing a head-to-head showdown against Rod Man (who ultimately won the LCS title). She finished in a tie for ninth place.[citation needed]
 
Rodriguez is a five-time host of the Imagen Awards, which recognizes "the positive portrayal and creative excellence of Latinos and Latino cultures on screen".
 
Through the stand-up comedy circuit, Rodriguez met Tiffany Haddish, who has proven a long-time friend and a strong advocate for women of color comics. In August 2019, she was featured in the comedy anthology series Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready on Netflix, hosted by Tiffany Haddish.She was one of six featured comedians, each given a half-hour comedy special.
 
Currently, Aida appears as a co-host of The Young Turks online platform.
