"I'm OK now, but I'll tell ya...last week I was in rough shape."

Rodney is one of the best comics ever. Here are some of my favorites:

I get no respect. Even as a kid, I got no respect. I asked my dad if I could go ice-skating. He told me, "Wait til it gets warmer."

My dad carried around the picture of the kid that came with his wallet.

My mother got morning sickness after I was born.

And my wife, she's no prize. She's a terrible cook. At my house, we pray after we eat.
I told her that I dont think meat loaf should glow in the dark.

I went to see my doctor...I told him "Doctor, every morning when I get up and look in the mirror I feel like throwing up. What's wrong with me? He said, "I don't know, but your vision's perfect."

My kids were afraid of the dark. Then they saw me naked, getting out of the shower. Now they're afraid of the light.

My kids cried when they found out they weren't adopted.

My wife isn't very bright. The other day she was at the store, and just as she was heading for our car, someone stole it! I said, "Did you see the guy that did it?" She said, "No, but I got the license plate."

I know I'm not handsome. On Halloween, when I open the door, the kids give me candy!

I went to a hooker. She told me she had a headache.

I know I'm not a sexy man. This morning when I put on my underwear I could hear the Fruit-of-the-Loom guys laughing at me.

My doctor told me to watch my drinking. Now I drink in front of a mirror.
I know I drink too much. When my doctor drew blood from me, he had to run a tab.

Rodney was funny. The comedy world suffered a big loss when he died.

So funny! Rodney has always been one of my favorites and I take my humourous anecdotes from him more often than not.

Whole-heartedly agree!

"... And my son, I tell ya. (straightens tie) I told him, 'You know, some day, you'll have kids of your own.' He says 'Yeah, well, so will you!'

I never understood the running gag about his doctor's name. Something like Dr. Vinnie Boombache. Does anyone know what that was about?

On one of his albums his routine is interrupted by a heckler, Rodney's response "If your going to heckle me, ask me something I know, like drugs or prostitutes".

Doctor Vinnie Boombotz...I think it was just a fictional name Rodney came up with. Like Johnny Carson's lawyer, Bombastic Bushkin.

Rodney has been known to hit the stage in nothing but a bath robe.
0 f#s given that day.
One of the greats.

He's loved here. Here's a 20 page thread on him:

Thanks for linking! I found this one on there:

"Oh, I was an ugly kid. My old man took me to the zoo. They thanked him for returning me. "
