Rod Man got hooked on comedy watching Russell Simmons' Def Comedy Jam, where he saw the likes of Martin Lawrence, Chris Tucker, and the late, great Bernie Mac perform. It was then he knew what he wanted to do with the rest of his life. "Watching comedy made me feel good, so I figured why not try to be the one making other people feel good. So he signed up for open mic nights at Atlanta's Uptown Comedy Club, hosted by the hilarious Earthquake. "Uptown was the place to be on Tuesday nights. The place was packed. You never knew who would stop in and do a guest spot. And you never really knew when you were going to hit the stage, because the list meant absolutely nothing to Earthquake."
Since those open mic nights, Rod has become an award-winning, quintessential entertainer. He has graced the stage at Caesar's Place, The Gibson Amphitheater, and The Apollo Theater. Comedy Centralgave him his own half hour special. And he has made many other television appearances, among them "The Bad Boys of Comedy" for HBO, Martin Lawrence's "First Amendment" for Starz, Nick Cannon's "Wild 'N Out" for MTV, "One Mic Stand" for BET, "The Funny Spot" for TV One, and "The World Stands Up" for BBC America and The Monique Show. Rod can be seen on the big screen in Judd Apatow's "Funny People" starring Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen for Universal Pictures.He even co-hosted a morning drive-time show in Los Angeles on Stevie Wonder owned KJLH Radio 102.3 FM.
