Al Madrigal Takes on His Biracial Identity in ‘Half Like Me’

By Jamilah King Jan 20, 2015

Al Madrigal, known for his role as the senior Latino correspondent on "The Daily Show," is set to debut his own one-hour special on biracial identity. The special, called "Half Like Me," is being billed as a "docu-comedy" and airs on Fusion this Thursday, January 22 at 10:00 p.m., ET. 

"Being half has always been confusing," Madrigal says in the preview for the special. "White people think you’re Mexican and Latinos give me shit about not being Latino enough."

From the Huffington Post:

The special follows the star on a quest for identity that many Latinos in the U.S. can identify with. The journey takes him from a family reunion in Tijuana and smoking cigars in Little Havana to some Spanish classes with a group of elementary school kids. He discusses the issue of Latino identity with big names in the community such as Univision’s Jorge Ramos, cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz and columnist Gustavo Arellano.
