The mission of the Rod of God Comedy, Rod Allison, is to reach all people with the message that you can be funny without being vulgar and that you can be a Christian without losing your sense of humor.
This statement best describes the comedic styling of comedian Rod Allison (a.k.a. "Rod of God Comedy"). Whether he's performing infamous impersonations, telling jokes about every day life, or performing music that penetrates the heart, Rod Allison is sure to touch his audience in a special way. This Comedian/ Singer/ Trumpeter
is an attorney by day and a comedian by night. His unique mixture of abilities allows him to reach everyone … regardless of age or color.
Rod's ability to reach all people with his comedy has been showcased through numerous performances. He has performed at the Regent in Las Vegas, guest-appeared on North Carolina's #1 Gospel station (WNNL "The Light" 103.9 FM ) on Sonya Hamm's "BREAKFAST CLUB" Program, performed/emceed at the 1997 and 1998 SOUL EXPLOSIONS, and has performed nationally at numerous churches, organizational events, colleges, corporations, as well as prisons.
Rod is also a gifted trumpet-player and singer. He was a featured soloist for the highly acclaimed NCCU Jazz Band which opened for performers such as the Count Basie Orchestra,
Branford Marsalis and other notable musicians. He was also the recipient of the ROTARIANS OUTSTANDING MUSICIANS AWARD and a lead vocalist for multiple choirs and a quartet group.
Rod Allison started doing comedy at the age of 7 in a small town north of Charlotte, North Carolina, known as Kannapolis. He did jokes at school, church, and family reunions and at his late grandfather's nursing home to entertain elderly people that were hurting and in need of a good laugh. Rod experienced firsthand the healing power of laughter
when he saw his elderly aunt rise from a coma after he repeatedly spoke jokes into her ear.
Pursuing comedy seemed the farthest thing from Rod's mind as he pursued his education and ultimate dream of becoming an
attorney. He graduated from North Carolina Central University in 1995 as class valedictorian and went on to earn his law degree from UNC-Chapel Hill School of Law in 1998.
Rod Allison attributes all his success to his strong Christian faith and to his parents' raising him in the fear of the Lord and of the Belt!
Whether you need a Comedian/Emcee for an upcoming event, or whether you need a mixture of comedy and music, Rod is truly prepared to offer the total package. Rod Allison is indeed a man on a mission to prove that there is still a place for "GOOD CLEAN COMEDY."
