Rondell Sheridan

Biography

Rondell Sheridan has that same quality. Look at him, and your mouth naturally edges 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.

More often than not, Rondell's hundred-plus nights a year club, concert, and corporate live performances end with standing ovations. With fifteen years of learning his craft, and having over four hours of material, Sheridan can delight a crowd or amaze them with his penchant to create "funnies" for an hour by simply talking to the audience. People have actually been known to see him twice in the same week without him repeating a single piece of material. But Rondell is still not quite recognized for what he is: one of the great stand-up comedians of our generation.

Rondell Sheridan was only the second comedian (Jerry Seinfeld was the first) to whom the Writers Guild of America granted a "co-created by credit" for their own situation comedy. And, Rondell's series, Minor Adjustments, became the first and still only television show in history to run original episodes on two networks, NBC and UPN, during the same television season. As of this season, it still stands as the only series in UPN's history to have a larger ratings audience at the end of its first season than when the show premiered. Even more incredible, Minor Adjustments' UPN lead-in, Moesha, actually dropped by 50%, both in ratings and share, during the same four-month period. Yet, when UPN announced the next season's Fall schedule, Minor Adjustments wasn't renewed.

Even now, Rondell continues to succeed. He stars as Andre, the dad in Cousin Skeeter, one of Nickelodeon's greatest successes. Rondell Sheridan is also the host of the FOX Family Channel's highest rated series, Show Me the Funny. But even that has a strange cloud to its silver lining...the network has postponed production of further episodes simply because the re-runs are being enjoyed by similar numbers of Neilsen families as the first time they aired.

And yet, even while turning 40, it seems that Rondell is just beginning to blossom. Between his series and visits on game and variety/comedy shows, he's becoming almost an extra member to a lot of American families.
