Tom Rhodes has been around, literally and figuratively. Now in his 40s, Rhodes has been a comic since his senior year in high school. Since then he’s lived in Florida, San Francisco, L.A., New York and in Amsterdam, where he hosted his own talk show for 2 years. Rhodes has played every American city that has a comedy club, and he’s toured the globe so many times that when Immigration looks at his passport, they ask for Cliffs Notes.
When Rhodes speaks, it’s in a mellifluous manner that suggests higher education, but Rhodes is somewhat proud that the last class he attended was in public high school. But Rhodes never settles for jokes about broken toasters or remoter controls, he would rather brood over race and culture. In addition to touring all over the world, Rhodes has appeared on a number of television shows throughout the years including “Comic Strip Live,” “MTV’s “Half Hour Comedy Hour,” “The World Stands Up,” “Late Friday” and has even had his own half-hour comedy special on “Comedy Central Presents …” Rhodes also briefly starred in his own sitcom on NBC called “Mr. Rhodes.”
