FIFE TAKES MANHATTAN

October 19th, 2017

Kansas, that is!

What an enjoyable morning it was in Manhattan, KS presenting The Mayberry Method to the Riley County Clerks office. These hard working folks are on the front lines of making sure things county-wide are running smoothly. Fife likes this kind of group!

Rik Roberts Mayberry Method

“Rik Roberts presented to our group the “Mayberry Method”.  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!”

Cindy Volanti, Human Resource Manager – Riley County Clerks Office – Manhattan, KS

Seguin, TX Chamber of Commerce Banquet

September 25th, 2017

I had a great time as emcee of the 97th annual Chamber of Commerce Awards for Sequin, TX. What a great community with a heart for servant leadership. Just outside of San Antonio is one of Texas’s best kept secrets!

Rik Roberts Emcee

“Rik Roberts is absolutely amazing. Everything he does throughout the night pulls the evening together perfectly. People are laughing, and having a great time as a result of the way he moves the program along. So whether you want an emcee, a comedian or a little bit of both, he’s the best!

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.”

Hyden, KY Bluegrass, BBQ & Barney!

September 11th, 2017

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!”

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

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!

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.
