Born and raised in Paterson New Jersey, Rodney has always been a comedian. Even as a toddler, he would entertain at family gatherings, most of the time against his will. Years of therapy have helped him recover from these traumatic times. Thanks to Rodney's school years, school administrators decided corporal punishment was no longer necessary in the school system; they now want capital punishment!
Laney's comedy career started capriciously in 1988. While in the Air Force, stationed at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton Ohio, he accompanied a fellow airman, an amateur comic, to a comedy club. His friend bombed, but Rod took the stage and received thunderous applause. It was instant addiction; for Rodney it was the stage, for his friend it was crack cocaine.
For the next decade, he performed at open mikes, private parties, and wherever he got the chance. His professional career began in 1997. He commenced performing in clubs and colleges from New York to California. He was featured at Chris Tucker's Comedy Club in Atlanta, during the Urban Comedy Festival "Laffapalooza" and Judy Carter's comedy showcase in Big Bear California. He mostly appears in NYC, at the Gotham Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club, Caroline's and Dangerfield's.
Some comics wait for their big break, not Rod, he is making his big break. In 2001 he acted and executive produced his first feature film "Pride & Loyalty," which started its pay per view release June 2002. It starred an array of soap stars from "One Life to Live," "Guiding Light," and "All My Children" including: Marj Dusay, Gina Tognoni, John Bolger and Emmy nominated Rebecca Budig.
In 2002, he played Willie in the comedy "Tinsel Town," by Public Defender Pictures. It starred Paul Taylor, (2001 Emmy nominee from "As the World Turns") John Palumbo, ("OZ") Johnny Williams, ("GoodFellas," "Honeymoon in Vegas") and Eileen Fulton (Emmy-winning veteran from "As the World Turns").
Most recently, Rodney has completed pilots for Comedy Central, MTV, A&E and has been seen on P.Diddy's "Bad Boys of Comedy" on HBO, Fox News Channel's "Red Eye," "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson," CBS, Comedy Central's "Premium Blend," and in London on the BBC's "The World Stand's Up." He has also appeared at the prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal.
Determination may be Rodney Laney's biggest asset; according to his credit report, his only asset. He is ambitious, professional, and determined. I could go on and on about me, I mean him, but I have reached the end of the page.
