Al Madrigal is a super guy. He's hilarious, for one: You've probably seen him on Conan or on Craig Ferguson, and he was the Jury Award winner for Best Stand-Up Comedian at the Aspen Comedy Arts Festival.

We've actually known Al since our college radio show days... and even then he was always helpful, friendly and all-around awesome. And that is the kind of folks we want to surround ourselves with at MaxFunCon. He was recently a guest on Jordan, Jesse Go! - head over to the MaxFunCon site for a sneak of his standup as "Smiling Al Madrigal" at MaxfunCon. You can also subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.
