BPAC's new Comedy Series continues with That's So Raven star Rondell Sheridan's hilarious show, "If You're Over 40 and You Know It, Clap Your Hands!"
“If you’re over 40 and you know it, clap your hands!” is a one man show by one of America’s favorite TV dads, comedian Rondell Sheridan.
“Clap Your Hands” is a non stop celebration of life, love and laughter told by a master storyteller, that will have you laughing at yourself.
Rondell’s “Victor Baxter” character has starred in “That’s So Raven”, “Cory in the House”, and “Raven’s Home” (Over 140 episodes in total) making him the longest running TV dad in the history of the Disney Channel.
“Clap your hands” is a look at life by someone well over 40. This is a show for folks with some milage on their tires, a show for folks who think eating dinner at 5:30 is a reasonable hour. Ya’ll know who you are. Grown folks. This is NOT a show for skinny jeans wearing Millennials. However it would be helpful if you could show us how to upload to TikTok and pronounce gif.
From the Tonight Show to several Showtime comedy specials to many, many, many appearances on Comedy Central. Rondell has been called one of the fastest comedy minds, when it comes to audience participation, in the business. Always funny, and never at a lost for words his clever take on everyday situations keeps audiences rolling.
As a stand up comedian, Sheridan transforms ordinary occurrences into hilarious and hearty tales. In an age where stand-up is under attack for its bawdy content, Sheridan disarms his audiences with a wholesome ease – a mixture of playful physicality, facial expressions and a gift to continually shift comedic gears and personas.
Born and raised on the South side of Chicago, Sheridan attended Marquette University in Milwaukee as an Interpersonal Communications major with a minor in Advertising. After college, he went with a gut feeling and schmoozed his way into an audition with the prestigious New York acting school Circle in the Square. With raw talent and a little good fortune, the novice actor was accepted to the program. He spent one year at the school honing his acting skills before moving on to perform in repertory work, regional theater and off-Broadway productions. The high point of his early career was creating a character in the original off-Broadway production of Leslie Lee’s “Between Now and Then.”
Sheridan then became a fixture on the stand-up circuit, headlining in clubs, colleges and on international cruise liners. He appeared on “The Tonight Show” with both Jay and Johnny, “The Keenan Ivory Wayans Show,” “The Conan O’Brien Show,” “Politically Incorrect,” starred in cable specials for both Showtime and Comedy Central, co-created the TV series Minor Adjustments , the first and only primetime series to premier on one network – NBC – then be sold and aired on a second – UPN – during the same TV season. Sheridan portrayed a child psychologist, who was the voice of sanity amongst his dysfunctional co-workers, family and friends.
Rondell has also co-hosted the syndicated talk show series MEN ARE FROM MARS, WOMEN ARE FROM VENUS, and stars on the syndicated series THAT’S FUNNY.
Put it all together, and you have one of the most popular comics of the Millennium.
