Comedian Rodney Perry

 

 

Rodney Perry’s high-energy comedy performances are the reason why he is a veteran in the game and one of the busiest brothers in the business. 

Perry currently serves as side-man on BET’s “The Mo’Nique Show” where he provides laughs alongside comedienne Mo’Nique five nights a week. For four seasons, Perry has served as co-host and Man On The Street for TV One’s comedy competition, Bill Bellamy’s “Who’s Got Jokes.” He’s also appeared on HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam,” BET’s “Comic View,” Showtime’s “Jamie Foxx’s Laffapalooza,” Starz network’s “Martin Lawrence Presents First Amendment Comedy,” E! Network’s “Chelsea Lately” and Byron Allen’s “Comics Unleashed.”

On the big screen, Perry has starred alongside Matt Damon in the film, “The Informant,” as well as appeared in “Bushwacked,” “Chicago Pulaski Jones” with Cedric The Entertainer, “Johnson Family Vacation” and DVD releases “Legacy,” “Redrum” and “Showstoppers.” 

Perry toured with the Budweiser Starting Lineup of Comedy. In 2002, he joked his way to a Bay Area Black Comedy competition championship. He has opened for legendary hip-hop artists Run DMC and the late music icon Ray Charles. 

Born in Chicago and raised in Monroe, Louisiana, Perry found his way to comedy by way of the U.S. Navy, where he performed to some of his toughest audiences. He eventually moved to the Bay Area where he honed his comedic craft and perfected his stage show, which includes hilarious observations on everything from the workplace to the joys – and occasional pains – of raising a big family.  Perry and his wife of 13 years are the parents of five children

 

JEP Quote:  "One of the best comedian that I have ever worked and a genuinely great guy.  A brilliant performer who's energy is infectious.  Rodney seemed to have a natural chemistry with our Host Kat and DJ Gman.  My outstanding memory of Rodney Perry will always be the spontaneous breakdancing that Rodney, Kat and DJ Gman did at the end of the Birmingham show".
