Memorial Weekend Comedy Show is coming up faster then you know it and Rodney Perry is one of the featured comedians. Check after the break for the full interview.
Over the past decade, Rodney Perry’s star has climbed to phenomenal heights. From his career-defining performance on Budweiser’s Starting Lineup of Comedy Tour to his side-man antics on BET’s award-winning Mo’Nique Show, Rodney has become well-known for his high-energy, free-for-all performances. As the loving father of five children, perhaps this is a benefit of being constantly surrounded by youthful spirits.
In the midst of a promotional campaign for The Mo’Nique Show’s recent NAACP Image Award Nomination for “Outstanding Talk Series,” Rodney Perry managed to squeeze some time out of his busy schedule and settle down for an interview with Clayton Perry – reflecting on the influence of Eddie Murphy, the mentorship of Cedric the Entertainer, and the “fine lines” of comedy.
