alabama farmers cooperative

“Rik performed at Alabama Farmers Cooperative’s manager’s meeting and did an outstanding job.  From his impersonation of Barney Fife during hospitality to his stand-up after dinner, his performance was just what we needed.  His humor was very appropriate for our group.  From the comments I have received, everyone enjoyed Rik’s performance.  We would definitely recommend him for any group.”

Mayberry Method Speech

“May I use this means to express our sincere appreciation for a job well done at our annual Mid-Year Conference.  Your portrayal of Barney Fife was “right on” and was very funny with some real life lessons to be learned by those in attendance.  I’ve heard nothing but positive remarks regarding your presentation from our attendees.  Best regards.  Ron”

Rik Roberts Corporate Speaker

Rik made our annual conference!We tied in our TitlePAC fundraiser into his act and Rik was so accommodating! We also had problems with audio visual presentation but Rik didn’t miss a bit. Attendees commented that his comedy was hilarious but there was substance in his presentation on eliminating distractions in the work place.

Rik is a pro in every sense of the way and a great comedic talent. I recommend Rik whole-heartedly! Thanks so much, Rik!!

Fake “Expert” Strikes Again … This Time In Atlanta!

Monday, March 6th, 2017

For the second time in three days I was able to “fool” the audience as a fake speaker. This time, I was speaking on the coal industry to commercial explosives and blasting systems provider Orica.

As I explained how windmills were reversing the Earth rotation, I got a few puzzling looks …

RIK ROBERTS ORICA SPEAKER

And then, when I informed them that a solar energy expansion pilot program in Seattle was a major failure I won them back.

There was just enough “true” mixed in with the “false” that it made for a great surprise.

Here is what the client had to say …

“Rik was a great addition to our conference of joint ventures & independent distributors. He had great ideas on how to trick the audience into believing he was an industry expert who we soon figured out knew very little about our industry. He was responsive to my communications, punctual at our event & everyone really enjoyed his comedic routine. His timing was spot-on, the topics were universal and he did a great Barney Fife!!

“During a time when everyone could use a good laugh, Rik Roberts delivered in a big way at our recent annual meeting. Rik’s performance, highlighting his role as a husband and father, connected perfectly with our audience. Anyone looking for a speaker who will work clean and make their audience laugh and simply enjoy themselves should definitely welcome Rik Roberts to the stage!”

Client Testimonial:

“The Home Builders Association of Alabama hired Rik Roberts to follow a long awards program and dinner.  That’s a tough act for any entertainer to follow. But Rik was able to keep the audience in their seats by immediately capturing their interest.  Then he kept their interest with a blend of hilarious observations and stories, everyone stayed laughing the whole time.  Although it was a room full of adults on a Friday evening, he understood it was a professional gathering and kept the humor PG; which was appreciated.  When Rik finished his set, he didn’t just take off, he stayed and chatted with our members for a little while.  He was a hit.  We highly recommend Rik for any gathering in need of a good comedian who can do impressions, sing and play the guitar!”

I had a blast providing comedy for the attendees at IBTM America in Nashville, TN this June. Lots of laughs and made a few new friends. This gathering of international event planners puts entertainment providers and event buyers in the same room for excellent networking. Thanks to Doug Spangler of Spangler Entertainment and Tim Grable of The Grable Group for inviting me to be part of it all.

West Virginia Academy of Family Physicians

Just had an excellent time and a bunch of healthy laughs with the West Virginia Academy of Family Physicians last weekend. I believe this was the third time for the group and I have more fun every show. Family doctors fill a real need in all states. In a day and age when so many people just go see a specialist, please realize the value of a physician who is familiar with your family history.

Thanks again WVAFP – I look forward to next time!
