Comedian Rodney Carrington Serious About Doing Nothing

TULSA, Oklahoma (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It’s a busy time for comedian Rodney Carrington – and it’s not.

The popular stand-up comic releases his new CD, King Of The Mountains, on Tuesday (Apr. 3), which will be followed by a Comedy Central special on April 14 and a DVD, Live At The Majestic, hits stores on May 1.

But while that sounds like a lot of work, Carrington admits HIS work is done, and he’s spending his days playing golf and working on fixing up a house in his hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma.

He’s also finishing up work on his first book, which he says was harder than he anticipated.

In his words, “They had someone interview me and write my stories down, and when I looked at it, I thought, ‘Who gives a f what I did in 7th grade? So I cut all that out, put the funny stuff in and it was the size of a pamphlet. So now I’m adding new stuff.”
