Join us for Rodney Carrington - Knee slappin', foot stompin, aisle rollin' good time!!

Rodney Carrington's unique brand of stand-up comedy and music has come to television. After over fifteen years of bustin' guts and leaving a trail of dust behind him on his non-stop stand-up comedy tour across America, and four chart-topping CDs (which have collectively sold over a million copies), Carrington has firmly carved out his niche in the history of comedy.
How Carrington got from his childhood beginnings as a shy kid who didn't think much of school to arenas full of people that pay money to hear him sing and tell jokes is a tale that could fill volumes. Although the story is a dream come true for him, Carrington never set out to be a comedian. While he was in junior college, he became involved in the theater program, and he realized that he not only liked acting, people actually thought he was good at it. From there it was a random whim that made him jump on stage at an open-mic night at a comedy club, and the rest, as they say, is history. Acting was put on the back burner in favor of stand-up comedy, but not permanently.

A native of Longview, TX, Rodney built a cult following through his regular exposure on syndicated morning radio shows, at the same time relentlessly touring the nation's comedy club circuit. His debut LP, Hangin' with Rodney, appeared in mid-1998; Rodney Carrington: Live followed a year later and Morning Wood in mid-2000. After the 2003 release Nut Sack, Carrington landed his own sitcom on the ABC network. Simply titled Rodney, it ran for two seasons from 2004 to 2006. The 2007 album King of the Mountains made the Top 20 on Billboard's Country Albums chart and then, in 2008, Rodney co-starred and co-wrote the feature film Beer for My Horses with Toby Keith. Keith would produce El NiƱo Loco, Carrington's first all-song album, which was released in 2009. By the end of that year he released the mostly serious Make It Christmas, his first holiday album.
