Rodney Carrington, a comedian, actor and writer, brings his special brand of humor to the Bill Heard Theatre, RiverCenter for the Performing Arts, 900 Broadway, at 7 p.m. Feb. 25.
Carrington has recorded eight major record label comedy albums selling more than two million copies, has starred in his own self-titled TV sitcom, which ran on ABC for two seasons and most recently co-wrote and co-starred with Toby Keith in the movie "Beer for My Horses."
Last summer, Carrington released a new all-music CD, "El Nino Loco," his seventh album on Capitol Nashville, which debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s comedy charts. Additionally, the first season (2004–05) of the ABC television show "Rodney" has recently been made available exclusively in Wal-Mart stores.
In August, Rodney released his new Christmas album, "Make it Christmas."
"It ain't got a funny song on it," he says. "It's a big-band, Frank Sinatra-type Christmas record; something I've always wanted to do."
The album includes many holiday classics such as "Mary, Did You Know?," "O Holy Night" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”.
According to Pollstar, Carrington has been among the Top 10 grossing touring comedians as he has performed for sold-out audiences throughout the U.S. and Canada for the last five years.
Tickets are $41.25.
