Rodney Carrington is a multi-talented comedian, actor, singer and writer who recorded eight major record label comedy albums, which have sold millions of copies. Rodney recently released two new albums on his brand new record label called Laughter’s Good Records. An album of new songs and material entitled Laughter’s Good debuted at Number One on the Overall Comedy Charts. The same week, the re-release of Rodney Carrington Live, C’mon Laugh You Bastards debuted at Number Two on the Overall Comedy Charts.
Two Rodney television specials aired in 2014. CMT premiered the all new Laughter’s Good and re-aired his extremely popular Live at the Majestic which originally aired on Comedy Central. Carrington also debuted his new YouTube series called “Bit By Bit” which airs every Tuesday at 3pm CT.
According to Pollstar, Rodney has been one of the top ten highest grossing touring comedians for the last ten years and among the top 4 or 5 the last several years. Rodney is on track to be in the top 5 again in 2014 as he regularly performs to sold out crowds across the US and Canada. All of the above follow on the heels of Rodney’s previous projects and accomplishments. He starred in his own TV sitcom Rodney, which ran for two seasons on ABC. He also co-wrote and co-starred with Toby Keith in the feature film Beer for My Horses which won the Tex Ritter Award from the ACM. Rodney added “author” to his list of accomplishments with the release of his first hard cover book entitled Rodney Carrington, Coming Clean published by Hatchette Books. Carrington has appeared on countless other TV shows, including the ACA (American Country Awards) and hosting the American Country New Year’s Eve Live show on FOX. He also won “Supporting Character of the Year” from the CMT Music Video Awards for his appearance on the Trace Adkins’ music video “I Got My Game On.”
Another of Rodney’s projects of which he is very proud is the Rodney Carrington Foundation, a 501c(3) which he founded that benefits charities who need a helping hand.
Rodney broke through with his major label comedy CD debut Hangin’ With Rodney in 1998. The next few years saw seven more Top 10 albums: Live, Morning Wood, Nutsack, Greatest Hits, King of the Mountains, El Nino Loco, and Make It Christmas, which continue to receive radio airplay and regularly place on the national comedy charts. Morning Wood has earned a RIAA gold record certification, and Greatest Hits (a double CD), has now reached platinum status. Rodney also released Make it Christmas which features his original song “Camouflage and Christmas Lights”, a tribute to our military.
Rodney’s popularity derives, in large part, from his connection with his audience, both at his live shows, and through social media. By the looks of his schedule in 2017, he shows no signs of slowing down!
