Rik Roberts presents Game Winning Drive to U.S. Food and Drug Administration

Sunday, June 10th, 2018

Rik Roberts Game Winning Drive

“We had Rik Roberts come in to present Game Winning Drive to our annual agency off site meeting. Rik really honed in on issues such as team work, unity, accountability, and owning your mistakes. He did it in a judgment-free way that gave us take-aways and connecting points we can take back to our home offices and apply.  It was extremely well done, very professional and with plenty of laughs. Rik hit the nail on the head, and managed to not ruffle any feathers. He is an expert at people and it shows. I highly recommend him if you have similar event where you need to tune up your leadership, accountability and communication skills.”

– Daniel Connally, Special Assistant | U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Office of Regulatory Affairs

 

Fife Impersonator Rik Roberts gets “Key to the City”

Monday, January 15th, 2018

What an honor to receive a medallion that is equivalent to the “Key to the City” of Mt. Juliet, TN!

Thanks to Capt. Chandler and Chief Hambrick for having me over to judge the chili cook-off. Aunt Bea would have been proud! #FifeIsMyLife

Join me at the HUCKABEE tapings in Nashville!

Monday, December 18th, 2017

I have so much fun as the audience warm up comedians for the TV Show “Huckabee” on TBN! The audiences are top notch, the set is state of the art, and the team from the producers all the way to the parking lot greeters are the sweetest folks you’ll ever meet. And, Governor Huckabee is a really, really decent human being.

The show features guests who are grounded by faith. Many times, their stories are those of reception after having gone astray.

Naomi Judd was a recent guest (and a huge fan of the Andy Griffith Show). She discussed how to deal with clinical depression. If you struggle, her book will help you. “River of Time” is the title.

Had fun and was inspired meeting the Dibiase’s. Ted “The Million Dollar Man” and Ted Jr. are doing great work out of the wrestling ring these days. Brought back some memories of watching the matches back in the old days! http://milliondollarman.com

I had the pleasure of meeting Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, legendary soul singer Sam Moore. You might know him as the singer of Soul Man (1967) with Sam & Dave, or from touring with Booker T and the MGs. Catch him singing Soul Man and being backed up on guitar by Steve Cropper!

If you want to join me for a taping of Huckabee the tickets area FREE! But you do have to reserve them. You can do this online by following this link:

I occasionally am away on gigs and will have a back up in my place. If you want to make sure I’ll be there on the date you are attending just shot me an email at rik@rikroberts.com.

Kentucky Baptist Convention

Monday, June 12th, 2017

When I have the opportunity to blend my comedy with my Christian background I get really excited. Such was the case recently during three events in Western, KY for the  Kentucky Baptist Convention Senior Adult Program. It was a total blast and very affirming all at once!

“Rik Roberts was not only exceptional all the way around, he was easy to work with and just a down-to-earth guy.  Your organization is blessed to have him on board. Rik, thank you for blessing our hearts with laughter.  Your comedic antics were refreshing, and you have the best Barney Fife impersonation that I have EVER heard and seen! You were extremely well received, and I was pleased with your ministry at our events.

FUN TIME AT THE RYMAN

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

RIK ROBERTS COMEDIAN

 

Time sure flies. I think it was 1994 when I first performed with this funny man. Next thing I knew he had blown up into one of the most recognizable comedy voices in our time. “Larry the Cable Guy” had a hilarious show at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. It was good to hang backstage and catch up little bit. Git-R-Done!

 

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!!

– Patty Poole, Orica
