Comedian Rodney Carrington returns to the Hollywood Theater at MGM Grand July 30 – August 12. Carrington is scheduled to perform at 10 p.m. nightly.
For more than 15 years, Carrington has blazed comedy trails with his stand-up comedy tour across America and multitude of chart-topping albums. In addition to recording six country music albums and performing stand-up comedy, Carrington has made several television appearances demonstrating his exceptional talents. He starred in the ABC television sitcom ‘Rodney’ as well as the Comedy Central special ‘Rodney Carrington Live at the Majestic Theatre.’ Carrington also is a fixture on successful syndicated radio shows such as Bob & Tom.
Carrington’s side-splitting singles have found their way to the top of the charts, along with six Top 10 albums: ‘Hangin with Rodney,’ ‘King of the Mountains,’ ‘Live,’ ‘Morning Wood,’ ‘Nut Sack,’ and ‘Greatest Hits,’ all of which continue to receive major radio airplay on country, classic rock and rock formats.
In 2008, Carrington filmed ‘Beer for My Horses,’ which he co-wrote and co-starred in along with country music star Toby Keith. He also appeared in the hit music video by Trace Adkins, ‘I Got My Game On,’ which won three awards on the 2008 CMT Music Video Awards, including ‘Male Video of the Year’ and ‘Video Director of the Year’ for Michael Salomon. Carrington won the category ‘Supporting Character of the Year’ for his role.
Carrington has six albums on major labels, all of which maintain coveted spots on the comedy charts. ‘Greatest Hits’ and ‘Morning Wood’ have achieved gold status from the Recording Industry Association of America and Carrington has been a Pollstar Top 100 grossing concert act since 2001.
Carrington recently premiered a comedy sketch music video on CMT entitled ‘If I’m the Only One,’ which is still currently playing on all country video outlets, featuring guest appearances by Jennifer Aspen (Rodney), Nick Searcy (Rodney) and Toby Keith. The song is one of the cuts from Rodney’s new all song CD on Capitol Nashville, ‘El Nino Loco,’ produced by Toby Keith, scheduled to be in stores June 16. Additionally, the first season of the ABC television show Rodney is now on sale exclusively in Wal-Mart stores.
