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.”

Barney Fife Impersonator

“Rik made our event a huge success! He interacted with our crowd like he had known them for years and brought smiles to young and old. Barney Fife was a huge hit and lots of folks took pictures and took home a memory from our event. Rik did a great comedy skit with some volunteers that we selected and was eager to help throughout the day. He became our emcee by the end of the day. His clean comedy routine brought laughter to everyone. Rik was perfect for our family friendly event and we couldn’t have been more pleased with his work. We will have him back again and would recommend his services to liven up about any crowd you could put together. Thanks Rik! Great job!”

MAMIC + MAYBERRY METHOD = FUN

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”

Laugh All Night – Athens, AL

Monday, August 28th, 2017

It’s always great to raise money for a worthy cause. It is also a lot of fun to see a comedy show. And, is there anything better than spending time with friends? Yes – when you can do all three at the same time!

I had a really enjoyable evening working with comedian Jonnie W. at Lindsay Lane Baptist Church as we raised money for Tim DeTellis and NEW MISSIONS in Haiti. Using the Laugh All Night platform, we were able to raise awareness and achieve sponsorships for several children to attend school.

As a side note, you don’t have to wear black to do this.

Interview with Jeanne Robertson!

Thursday, July 20th, 2017

Jeanne Robertson

Every once in awhile you have a chance to meet one of your favorite comedians. She prefers the label “humorist”. But whatever you call her, you have to admit Jeanne Robertson is flat out hilarious.

Jeanne joins me to discuss a career that started in late 60’s and has carried her into her mid seventies! You don’t last that 54 years in show business unless you are jaw dropping funny.

Jeanne got on my radar a dozen or so years ago when I heard her routines on Laugh USA (SiriusXM Satellite radio). I had never crossed paths with her at a comedy club and kept wondering “Where did this hilarious lady come from?” It turns out she comes from North Carolina and entered comedy through the speaking circuit. She’s quick to tell you she is a humorist – not a stand-up comedian. But don’t let that fool you. Her stories are full of laughs all the way to the huge surprise payoff.

After getting to know her for years through her routines, I finally got the chance to meet up with Jeanne in early July at a session on humor at the National Speaker’s Association conference in Orlando, FL. We were both on a panel and let me tell you something – she flat out killed it! It was then I knew I had to get her on the show. We talk about her COMEDY WITH CLASS Humor Competition (sign up HERE) and a whole lot more.

With over 126,000 YouTube Subscribers and over 49 MILLION views Jeanne is more popular than ever.

Volunteers are dear to my heart. Selfless acts like taking care of others should be rewarded. Luckily for me, I had a chance to bring laughs (and Barney Fife) to an appreciation banquet for just those kinds of folks. What a fun time!
