THURSDAY LOWDOWN: Rodney Carrington is a Comedian

Thursday night at the Blue Lake Casino there will be laughter. These yuks will be the result of the comic stylings of Rodney Carrington, a comedian of enough clout that, once upon a time, he had his own half-hour sitcom on ABC. Sometimes he sings songs, like the one above. If you like that song, maybe you should go. If not, well, scroll your Lowdown listings below.
