Who's Got Jokes?
Rodney Perry (born September 15, 1970 in Chicago, Illinois) is an American comedian, actor and writer.

Born in Chicago, Illinois and raised in Monroe, Louisiana, Perry found his way to comedy by way of the United States Navy, where he performed to some of his toughest audiences. He eventually moved to the Bay Area where he honed his comedic craft and perfected his stage show, which includes observations on everything from the workplace to the joys and occasional pains of raising a big family.

Perry has also teamed up with Tony Rock in the film The Last Laugh, a drama about comedy. In addition to his nightly role on The Mo'Nique Show, Perry constantly tours with his stand-up act. He is currently preparing to shoot his first comedy special, Rodney Perry All the Way Live, in summer 2011.
