RODNEY LANEY was born and raised in Paterson, New Jersey and has always been a comedian. Even as a toddler, he would entertain at family gatherings, most of the time against his will. Years of therapy have helped him recover from these traumatic times. Thanks to Rodney’s school years, school administrators decided corporal punishment was no longer necessary in the school system; they now want capital punishment!
Laney’s comedy career started capriciously while in the Air Force. He was stationed at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio where he accompanied a fellow airman, an amateur comic, to a comedy club. His friend bombed, but Rod took the stage and received thunderous applause. It was instant addiction. For Rodney, it was the stage, for his friend it was… Well, you know. He has executive produced and acted in the feature film Pride & Loyalty, which started as a pay per view release. He played Willie in the comedy “Tinsel Town,” created by Public Defender Pictures, which starred John Palumbo (OZ) and Johnny Williams, (GoodFellas, Honeymoon in Vegas.)
