Storyline

Stand-up comedian Rodney Carrington would like to take you to the middle of real, everyday America. In the tradition of "Home Improvement" and "Roseanne" comes a down-to-earth guy's guy who, with his own heartland intelligence, speaks the truth. Rodney is quitting or getting fired from jobs he hates while doing stand-up in dive bars at night. He may not have much money, but he still finds excitement. He's not afraid to walk into a department store naked on a dare. Not afraid to take credit for flowers someone else sent his wife. Not afraid to get between his fighting boys. Not afraid to tell his wife he wants to make stand-up his career. He's going to figure out how to find happiness while being the best damn husband, dad and son he knows how to be.

One of the Funniest People in America
29 December 2004 | by (Whitesburg, Kentucky) – See all my reviews

I've been a fan of Rodney Carrington for many years. If you've not heard any of his stand-up comedy you're really missing out on one of the funniest people in America. Rodney Carrington has sold out Rupp Arena in Lexington, KY many times along with many other arenas and concert halls across America. As for the sitcom, it's very good, well written and is usually very funny. It places a struggling stand-up comedian in rural America in various situations as he tries to further his comedy career while also working to support his family. Many of the episodes are based on the stand-up comedy of Rodney Carrington and the real life situations he has faced. I've not heard anything about how this show has done in the ratings but I do hope it is picked up for next year. You're missing out if you have not seen this show.
