Funnyman Rodney Perry, host of Bounce TV’s “Off the Chain,” was in Charlotte this week to attend the William Wilson Celebrity Invitational, a two-day charity event to raise money for two causes – providing scholarships for survivors of domestic violence and Autism Speaks.
The Post caught up with Perry while he was in town. In the following Q&A the comedic actor shares how he got his start in show business and his personal ties with domestic violence. Questions and answers have been edited for brevity and clarity.
QUESTION: The William Wilson Celebrity Invitational is a benefit for victims of domestic violence and Autism Speaks. Do you have a personal connection to either cause?
ANSWER: Absolutely. When you talk about autism, you are talking about something that we are dealing with now more than ever. I’m a father of six children. Luckily my children are healthy, but it’s a tough endeavor when you are a parent and your child is suffering from autism. So anytime you get a chance to give back, you give back.
