Comedian and actor Rondell Sheridan has audiences in stitches all over the country, and, on Friday, March 6, 2020 at 8 p.m., he’ll share the laughs with Asheville at the Wortham Center for the Performing Arts.
Born and reared on the South Side of Chicago, Sheridan attended Marquette University in Milwaukee as an interpersonal communications major in advertising. After college, he was accepted to the apprentice program of the prestigious New York acting school, Circle in the Square, where he spent a year honing his skills before launching his career in repertory, regional theatre, and off-Broadway productions.
Sheridan first appeared in 1982 at a small club in New York’s West Village; six months later, he was a regular, honing his comedy to become a storytelling master. He is best known for his role as the fun-loving dad Victor Baxter on Disney’s long-running series That’s So Raven.
Sheridan has long excelled as both an actor and a stand-up comedian, appearing on The Tonight Show (with both Johnny Carson and Jay Leno), Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Late, Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Comics Unleashed, Showtime and Comedy Central, and he’s had recurring roles on Nickelodeon, the Disney Channel, and NBC’s Minor Adjustments.
In his new show, If You’re Over 40 and You Know It, Clap Your Hands!, Rondell brings nonstop hilarity to the stage in a celebration of life, love and laughter—transforming personal observations into hilarious routines about his life.
