Carrington is a multitalented comedian, actor, and writer who has recorded eight major record label comedy albums selling over 3 million copies. Rodney starred in his own TV sitcom Rodney, which ran for two seasons.
In Rodney, Carrington will take the audience on an enlightening trip into the real middle America. In the tradition of Home Improvement and Roseanne, Rodney is a down-to-earth guy's guy who, with heart, intelligence and a candid view on life.
The show's story revolves around character Rodney Hamilton from Tulsa, Oklahoma (where Carrington resides with his wife and three boys) who wishes to quit or get fired from a job he hates while doing stand-up in dive bars at night. He may not have much money, but he still finds excitement and wishes to become a full time stand up comedian.
Rodney's life revolves around his family - his wife Trina (Jennifer Aspen) and his sons Jack (Oliver Davis) and Bo (Matthew Josten). He also spends a lot of time with his best friend Barry Martin (Nick Searcy) who constantly tries to escape his wife Genie, and with his crazy sister-in-law Charlie (Amy Pietz).
Another recurring character is police officer Gerald Bob (Jon Reep), who has a sexual relationship with Rodney's sister-in-law, Charlie.
Rodney isn’t 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.
