Comedian Rodney Carrington Set for Salem

Rodney Carrington, a multi-talented comedian, actor, singer, and writer, will bring his comedy stylings to the Salem Civic Center Friday night, November 12. This show is for MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY.

Carrington has been playing sold-out shows around the world as one of the top 10 highest-grossing touring comedians for the past two decades. He has recorded eight major record label comedy albums, followed by three albums on his own record label, Laughter's Good Records. His 2017 album "Here Comes the Truth” climbed to #3 on the comedy charts, racked up millions of streams on Spotify and even spawned a Netflix special. Rodney has added "author" to his list of accomplishments, with the release of his book “Rodney Carrington, Coming Clean" published by Hatchette Books.

Over the years, he has starred in his own TV sitcom, “Rodney", which ran for two seasons on ABC, co-wrote and co-starred with Toby Keith in the feature film, “Beer for My Horses”, which won the Tex Ritter Award from the ACM, and starred in his own Netflix special "Here Comes the Truth”.

Rodney is fresh off the release of his latest album, "Get Em Out", which hit #1 on iTunes, and he is gearing-up for non-stop touring in the second half 2021.
