INDIO, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Multitalented comedian, actor and writer Rodney Carrington will grace the stage at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino. On Friday October 19, Carrington will show why he has such a huge fan following, already recording eight major record label comedy albums that sold more than 3 million copies.
His album Morning Wood has been certified Gold and Greatest Hits has been certified Platinum. For two seasons, Carrington starred in his own TV sitcom, Rodney, on ABC. He co-wrote and co-starred with Toby Keith in the feature film Beer for My Horses. In 2011 Rodney partnered with the American Country Awards by presenting at their awards show and hosting the American Country New Year’s Eve Live show on Fox.
According to Pollstar, Carrington has been one of the top 10 highest-grossing touring comedians for the last 10 years and among the top five the last several years. Rodney is on track to be in the top five again in 2012. He regularly performs to sold-out crowds across the U.S. and Canada.
Rodney broke through with his major label comedy CD debut, Hangin' With Rodney, in 1998. The album, featuring fan favorite songs "Letter to My Penis" and "Fred," sold more than 450,000 copies, and over 10 years later, consistently appears on the Soundscan comedy charts.
The next few years saw six more Top 10 albums: Live, Morning Wood, Nutsack, Greatest Hits, and King of the Mountains, and the newest one, El Nino Loco, all of which continue to receive major radio airplay and a place on the national comedy charts.
Carrington formed a foundation in 2010 to benefit those who need a helping hand. The Rodney Carrington Foundation has received recognition as a 501(c)(3) organization and is actively evaluating opportunities to support several local and national charities through ongoing events; $2.00 from each ticket sold for Rodney Carrington performances will go to the foundation.
Tickets for the 9PM Rodney Carrington performance go on sale Friday, August 24 for $49, $39, $29 at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, via telephone (800) 827-2946 or online at www.FantasySpringsResort.com
