A versatile actor, writer, and stand-up comic, Rodd has consistently applied his creativity in taking his career to the next level. Six years into the comedy game, he became acutely aware of the glut of white stand-up comics. Rodd then embarked upon a successful plan to make a niche for himself as the “whiteboy” performing in primarily black nightclubs. At first glance, both club owners and audiences were surprised, but Rodd’s talent quickly won out, and he was soon warmly embraced by cheering crowds.
This has led to several TV appearances including Showtime’s comedy special “White Boyz in the Hood”, P. Diddy’s “Bad Boys of Comedy”, Bill Bellamy’s “Who’s Got Jokes?”, and three performances on BET’s “Comicview.” He has captured the title in the “Bay Area Def Comedy Jam”, and finished third in the “Bay Area Black Comedy Competition” at the Paramount Theater in Oakland, Ca.
