Bernie Mac perform. It was then Rod Man 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 comedian Earthquake.

Since those open mic nights, Rod Man has performed all over the country, winning first place at the Urban Comedy Festival in N.Y. in 1996. He's entertained audiences at Caesar's Place, The Gibson Amphitheater and The Apollo Theater, and built an impressive resume of film and television credits.

Comedy Central gave Rod Man his own half-hour special, and he appeared on HBO's "Def Comedy Jam," BET's "Comic View," "Showtime at the Apollo" and Comedy Central's "Premium Blend." Additional television appearances include "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, "The World Stands Up" for BBC America and "The Mo'Nique Show." He also co-hosted a morning drive-time show in Los Angeles on KJLH Radio 102.3 FM, owned by Steve Wonder.

On the big screen, Rod Man can be seen in Judd Apatow's "Funny People," starring Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen for Universal Pictures. Rod Man also appeared in "Love Chronicles," starring Terrence Howard, and is featured in the DVD releases "The Big Black Comedy Show Volume 2" with Mo'Nique and HBO's "P. Diddy Presents the Bad Boys of Comedy."
