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.

His ability to entertain in a clean and down to earth fashion, was a much needed breath of fresh air. I highly  recommend Rik for any of your speaking and presentation needs.

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!

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.

“Rik Roberts was the spotlight for our bi-annual sales event. His humor was well received by our diverse crowd of sales people from all over the US and Canada. I was concerned about hiring a special person from out of state, but he was worth it. He kept the audience laughing from the beginning until the end.”
