Turn your next meeting into an entertaining, powerful and unforgettable event

Rodney is the corporate world's go-to resource for comedy entertainment. With customized, high-energy humor, Rodney effectively communicates your message to your complete satisfaction (or he cleans your house for a month).

For nearly 20 years, Rodney has entertained audiences worldwide, catering to clients in a variety of industries, including travel, software, finance and shipping - to name a few.

He has served the needs of his varied clients through hosting awards presentations, announcing product launches, emceeing sales training seminars, producing videos for company-wide meetings and division retreats, serving as a professional and highly believable impersonator, and, of course, providing Stand-Up Comedy at a variety of venues -- you name it, he's probably done it (always within the parameters of the law, of course).

Rodney Sherwood proves that "corporate comedy" is not an oxymoron.

Rodney packs a one-two punch as a top-notch writer and performer. As a writer, Rodney has created copy for hundreds of corporate videos, dozens of TV shows, a multitude of CD-ROMs, and more than a handful of motion pictures. As an actor, he is equally as accomplished, having performed in all of the above -- anything not mentioned above, well, he's done that, too.

For both writing and performing, Rodney has been honored with numerous awards, including an Emmy for writing and performing on the TV show Free Ride, a Telly for writing and directing Winning Customers (a comedy video starring the VP of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Microsoft), a Codie for writing and performing in the CD-ROM game, The Lost Mind of Dr. Brain, and a prestigious Bronze World Medal award at the New York Festival for his writing and hosting work on the video Between the Lines.

You can't spell corporate comedy without Rodney Sherwood. And a "C." Oh yeah-and an "M."

When you hire Rodney, you'll get a program tailored exactly to your particular needs and budget. His nearly two decades of experience mean he brings the best available resources to every job, including cutting-edge production techniques, a full menu of styles and genres from which to choose, and comedy that's on target with your audience -- and always garden fresh. (See just some of his testimonials below).

In short, Rodney is very familiar with and comfortable in the corporate culture. That means less hassle for you and more fun for your attendees.

Rodney Sherwood: He takes the business of being funny…seriously

Sherwood hits a home run for Microsoft.
When Microsoft needed a host to add fun to their company meeting, they called Rodney Sherwood. The event was held from second base in Seattle's Safeco Field (home of the Seattle Mariners), in front of 18,000 employees. Microsoft called on Rodney because they knew he could deliver. After all, the previous year, when Microsoft used satellite's to broadcast the event to over 50,000 worldwide, in addition to a live audience of over 3,000, Rodney was Microsoft's go-to teammate for warm-up and comic relief. Rodney delivers the kind of fun and memorable meetings that get him called back again and again and again.

"I wanted to give a special thank you to you for all the fabulous work that you did for us at MGB this year. As always, you were amazing! Not only were you a great host, but also you were so great in your employee interviews. All the bits filmed at MGB were just awesome. We are getting a ton of great feedback about the program. You have a unique gift to bring out the best in people in your interviews. And you can make the sourest of people break into a laugh. Thank you for all you bring to Microsoft. It is a pleasure working with you and I can only hope that we will have the chance to work with you many more times."
