Rodney Carrington

Rodney Scott Carrington (born October 19, 1968) is an American stand-up comedian, actor, and country music artist. He has released six major-label studio albums and a greatest-hits package, on Mercury Records and Capitol Records. His comedy act typically combines stand-up comedy and original songs. Carrington has also starred in the sitcom Rodney and in the 2008 film Beer for My Horses.

Rodney Carrington lived in Longview, Texas, from 1988 to 1990. Carrington worked as a comedian in local venues, gaining exposure through radio programs such as The Bob and Tom Show.

Carrington's first album, Hangin' with Rodney, was released in 1998 via Mercury Records Nashville. This album, composed of both standup comedy and original songs, contained the non-charting single "Letter to My Penis" and peaked at No. 73 on Top Country Albums. He moved to Capitol Nashville for his next album, 2000's Morning Wood. It was his first Top 20 album, and it brought him to the singles charts for the first time with "More of a Man", which reached No. 71 on Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs). After it came the live album Live: C'mon Laugh You Bastards, which did not chart.

Carrington's third release for Capitol was 2003's Nut Sack. It included the single "Don't Look Now" which reached No. 60. A Greatest Hits package followed in 2004. This album comprised selections from his Capitol recordings on two discs: stand-up routines on one disc, and songs on the other. It also included his first non-comedy song, "Things We Didn't Know." Also in 2004, Carrington made his acting debut in Rodney, a sitcom based largely on his own life which aired on ABC for two seasons. He released King of the Mountains in 2007, and in 2008 he appeared in the film Beer for My Horses.

King of the Mountains contains his second serious song, "Angel Friend", a tribute to his best friend Barry Martin, who died suddenly in 2003.

El Niño Loco, his sixth Capitol album, was released in 2009. The latter album is composed entirely of songs, a first for Carrington. And it also contains his 3rd non-comedy song "Funny Man".

Later in 2009, Carrington released his first Christmas album, Make It Christmas. The first single from the album, "Camouflage and Christmas Lights" became his first Top 40 country hit in December 2009.


Rodney: You can talk about anything if you go about it the right way, which is never malicious.
Rodney: I thought comedy would be the hardest thing I could do, and if I could do that, I could do anything. 

Rodney: I didn't plan on being a comedian. I didn't plan on getting married and I didn't plan on having kids, but I did all those things.
Rodney: I can drink on the job if I want to. I can go on stage with a beer and it's OK. I can say whatever I want. It's a great job to have.
He appeared in the music video for Trace Adkins' 2007 single "I Got My Game On", and starred alongside singer Toby Keith in the 2008 film Beer for My Horses.
Carrington lives in Bixby, Oklahoma, a suburb of Tulsa.
