Comedian Paul Rodriguez on Appearing on Golden Girls, His Skateboarding Son, and Chihuahuas

Paul Rodriguez is more than just one of "those guys that was in that thing." You know him from The Newlywed Game, if you're a little older, and the Original Kings of Comedy if you're not so old. He's been around show business so long that his son is almost more famous than him.

Rodriguez may be slowing down on standup gigs, but he's keeping the wheels greased with voice-over work and a big ol' philanthropic heart.

Before he becomes "the guy that plays Palm Beach Improv this weekend," we chatted with Rodriguez about chihuahuas, the Golden Girls, and the streets of Compton. Seriously, how much fun does that sound?
