A frequent guest on the Tonight Show
and star of the '90s NBC sitcom Mr. Rhodes

calls his mix of "dark and absurdly optimistic cynicism." In addition to two stand-up specials on Comedy Central, he's also known for hosting the Dutch late-night talk show The Kevin Masters Show Starring Tom Rhodes
, a gig which resulted in his being known as "the David Letterman of the Netherlands." Born in Washington, D.C. and raised in Florida, Rhodes has traveled the globe performing comedy, playing top clubs on five continents. He's recorded three stand-up albums and a recent stand-up special, Light Sweet Crude
on Netflix. He hosts the critically acclaimed Tom Rhodes Radio
podcast, and writes about travel for The Huffington Post
. Now see him live at Zanies in Rosemont.
