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.

The best TV program on abc1/ abc ever!!
27 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

Rodney is the best TV program on abc1 (in UK) ever! I am so disappointed to read that it seems series 2 will be the last. Series 1 was excellent and had me in stitches all the way through every episode. Series 2 has just started on abc1 in the UK. It is excellent but the episodes do not seem to follow a logical order like series 1. For instance, tonight's episode, "Welcome Ho" seemed to logically follow the last episode of series 1 where Rodney leaves for a 2 month tour but instead was shown in the middle of the series after "Sleepover". Series 1 was best but 2 is still great, I want them all on DVD or video but there is no retail release so I am recording them all at the moment onto DVD. I have 4 episodes in order of series 1 on DVD so far but cant do series 2 until its finished because I am not sure what order they should be. If you like the show buy 1 of Rodney Carrington's CDs from US. The Greatest Hits is super, I bought it new on eBay and it was still well under £10 to UK from US!
