Perhaps best know as the fun loving dad, Victor Baxter, on Disney’s long running series “Thats So Raven”. From the Tonight Show with both Johnny and Jay, to Conan O’Brien, to several Showtime comedy specials to many, many, many appearances on Comedy Central. Rondell has been called one of the fastest comedy minds, when it comes to audience participation, in the business. Always funny, and never at a lost for words. Rondell is a must see. Recently featured on Craig Ferguson his clever take on everyday situations keeps audiences rolling.
Look at him, and your lips naturally edge closer to your ears. Maybe it’s his open, inviting eyes; maybe it’s his big, easy smile. Or just maybe, it’s because over the last decade or so - whether Rondell’s acting, hosting, or doing stand-up - you’ve laughed every time you’ve seen him.
As a stand up comedian, Sheridan transforms ordinary occurrences into hilarious and hearty tales. In an age where stand-up is under attack for its bawdy content, Sheridan disarms his audiences with a wholesome ease - a mixture of playful physicality, facial expressions and a gift to continually shift comedic gears and personas.
Born and raised on the South side of Chicago, Sheridan attended Marquette University in Milwaukee as an Interpersonal Communications major with a minor in Advertising. After college, he went with a gut feeling and schmoozed his way into an audition with the prestigious New York acting school Circle in the Square. With raw talent and a little good fortune, the novice actor was accepted to the program. He spent one year at the school honing his acting skills before moving on to perform in repertory work, regional theater and off-Broadway productions. The high point of his early career was creating a character in the original off-Broadway production of Leslie Lee’s “Between Now and Then.”
Sheridan then became a fixture on the stand-up circuit, headlining in clubs, colleges and on international cruise liners. He appeared on “The Tonight Show” with both Jay and Johnny, “The Keenan Ivory Wayans Show,” “The Conan O’Brien Show,” “Politically Incorrect,” starred in cable specials for both Showtime and Comedy Central, co-created the TV series MINOR ADJUSTMENTS , the first and only primetime series to premier on one network – NBC - then be sold and aired on a second - UPN - during the same TV season. Sheridan portrayed a child psychologist, who was the voice of sanity amongst his dysfunctional co-workers, family and friends.
Rondell has also co-hosted the syndicated talk show series MEN ARE FROM MARS, WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS, and stars on the syndicated series THAT’S FUNNY.
Put it all together, and you have one of the most popular comics of the Millennium.
Thank you for providing us with a top-flight comic to perform at the Holly Springs Cultural Center. Rondell’s performance was funny and entertaining and he had no problem engaging members of the audience as part of his routine and his story-telling.
2012 reviews for his comedy CD A BANANA AND A GUN:
The title alone would suggest that Rondell is a nut, but he's a very clever nut! This CD will keep you laughing throughout, and for days after. I highly recommend it!
What comedy should be
Rondell's latest project is wonderful. I'm almost willing to offer a money back guarantee. He has the innate ability to take everyday circumstances and objects, and create comedic brilliance. He says the stuff we all think. He even says the stuff we wish we were creative enough to think. Something is clearly wrong with him, but that's what makes him so hilarious.
The way comedy used to be
I remember listening to comedy records as a kid. I would listen over and over again, each time laughing more than the time before. Then I got Sirius/XM radio and started listening to the comedy stations. I laugh once in a while, but a lot of the stuff just isn’t that funny. Rondell’s work is the real thing - this album is smart and clever, but wicked and biting in just the right amount. I keep playing it for friends and laughing all over again and I even had a person at a red light ask me what I was laughing so hard at. I love this album. This is some funny s*&t!
