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.

ARROWHEAD FUNERAL DIRECTORS

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

I know what jokes you are thinking of right now! But no, they were not a “dead” audience and they were not “dying to leave the room”. They were in fact a great group of very family focussed funeral home directors and suppliers who wanted to take their service to another level.

Arrowhead Funeral Directors Association

Among the group were Gregg Bright (far left) and Tim Koch. The group was also complimented by a gentleman who recently remodeled his home to be a replica of The Andy Griffith Show set! You can check out the results – and even stay in this bed and Breakfast – at www.TaylorHomeInn.com. Tell him “Old Barn” sent you!

“Rik was fantastic. Everyone is still sending me positive comments and others want to know how to book him for their events. Thanks, Rik!”

FIFE TAKES MANHATTAN

Thursday, 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

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!”

Rik Roberts Corporate Speaker

Rik made our annual conference!We tied in our TitlePAC fundraiser into his act and Rik was so accommodating! We also had problems with audio visual presentation but Rik didn’t miss a bit. Attendees commented that his comedy was hilarious but there was substance in his presentation on eliminating distractions in the work place.

Rik is a pro in every sense of the way and a great comedic talent. I recommend Rik whole-heartedly! Thanks so much, Rik!!
