Rik Roberts entertains at KACo Conference in Louisville, KY

Comedian Rik Roberts at KACo Conference

 

“Thank you so much for your awesome performance at the Kentucky Association of Counties 43rd Annual Conference & Exposition held Nov. 9, 2017 at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky.

The feedback that we received was overwhelmingly positive. Our large group appreciated your clean humor. When in Louisville it’s hard to compete with 4th Street Live entertainment. However, you maintained to keep everyone in their seats during the hour long performance. It was a pleasure working with you and we look forward to working with you again in the future.”

Listen Up Laugh It up is an interactive, hands on workshop empowering people to accomplish more through creative agreement, listening, and taking action. If this sounds like something your organization would benefit from, check out this link to a demo video: bit.ly/LuLuRR

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.

Mayberry Method Rik Roberts

“Rik Roberts presented the “Mayberry Method” to our group.  He was very well received by all level of employees.  Not one person, in the audience of 190, lost interest during the 90 minutes he “entertained” and educated our group.  We even had an added bonus of unexpected interaction of an official Kansas Highway Patrol Officer that assisted in his great message of how to react/respond when in an unusual or difficult situation.  Many employees have requested to have him back again!

Mayberry Method Rik Roberts

 

“Rik Roberts (aka Barney Fife) spoke for CML USA, Inc. at our International Sales Meeting. We had representatives from Italy, Canada, Portugal and the U.S. After a full day of being served very technical information, our representatives enjoyed being able to relax and enjoy his performance. Rik’s business message was clear and on point, and his very entertaining comedy routine had everyone in stitches from beginning to end. We wanted something light and entertaining yet informative for our sales professionals. From fun “citations” a the beginning to allowing photos to be taken with Barney, Rik Roberts provided exactly what we were looking for!”
