infancies of his comedy career at the tender age of 7. His
teacher noticed Rodney's funny nature and made a deal with him. If he would
"shut up throughout the course of the day” he would be given an opportunity to
perform for his classmates at the end of the day. Rodney took his teacher up on
that deal. This was the beginning. Perry calls Atlanta home when he’s not traveling the country to sold-out

“Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family”. Even though Perry is a sought out
Actor/Host, he still remains a comedian at heart. He is currently preparing for his
‘made for TV’ comedy special entitled "No More Mr. Nice Guy” and can also be
