Warm and friendly is how you feel once you greet the welcoming smile of comedian Rodney Perry in person, and after only minutes of being in his presence the smiles turn to hearty laughter as his gift is to entertain. Born in Chicago and raised in Monroe Louisiana. Rodney served his country for eight years as a member of the United States Navy.
Rodney Perry has had the opportunity to learn the business of Comedy from some of the best. His first job in Hollywood was serving as writer/warm-up guy for Kym Whitley’s show “Oh Drama” on BET. Doors continued to open for Rodney as he got opportunities to serve as opening for the likes of George Lopez, Cedric the Entertainer, and Steve Harvey. The relationship that would prove to be the most poignant would be the one between Rodney and Mo’Nique.
The first time Rodney ever spoke to Mo’Nique she offered to take his wife on a shopping spree. Rodney says, “That was the day I met my personal angel, my sister”. They would go on to perform all over the country and to share microphones on syndicated radio as well. When the Radio Show ended Mo’Nique told Perry that bigger and better things were coming. That thing happened to be the Mo’Nique Show on BET.
Perry now calls Atlanta home. Rodney Perry’s Comedy career has given him many opportunities, from his work as Co-Host of the Mo’Nique Show to his starring role as Harold in “Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family”. Even though Perry is becoming a sought after actor and host he is and always will be a comedian first. Currently, Rodney Perry is preparing for the release of comedy special for television entitled “Rodney Perry All The Way LIVE” and can be seen as the current host of Bounce TV’s “Off The Chain”!
