Mayberry Method at Collierville Chamber of Commerce

Sunday, June 3rd, 2018

Rik Roberts Collierville Chamber of Commerce

“Rik Roberts offers the perfect combination of education and entertainment. As the keynote speaker for our Chamber’s general membership luncheon, Rik began by engaged the audience with his dead-on impersonation of Deputy Barney Fife. After some interactive fun with a few key business and community leaders in the room, he segued into a fantastic presentation about eliminating distractions in the workplace through the “Mayberry Method”. The audience loved him, and everyone left with takeaways that can be easily implemented to increase productivity in any organization. Rik was a pleasure to work with, and I highly recommend him!”

“We had Rik Roberts do a show for about 35 of our producers and their spouses tonight. He did an excellent job. Everyone in the group was laughing. He had some good Ag related material and kept us laughing for over an hour. If we ever want to hire a comedian again we would be happy to hire Rik Roberts.”

“We loved having Rik perform for us. I could not measure the decibels of laughter coming from the room as he performed. He had some of our most highly esteemed men doing some really funny stuff. Our group really enjoyed him. He brought us together with laughter by breaking down social barriers. Rik was a great choice!

Funny Finds Me Sometimes

Friday, February 2nd, 2018

Some of the best comedy just happens. Like when you pull a guy out of the audience after he just proposed and he turns out to be a Department of Corrections employee. Short clip, have a laugh on me!

Join me at the HUCKABEE tapings in Nashville!

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.

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!”

Fake “Expert” Strikes Again … This Time In Atlanta!

Monday, March 6th, 2017

For the second time in three days I was able to “fool” the audience as a fake speaker. This time, I was speaking on the coal industry to commercial explosives and blasting systems provider Orica.

As I explained how windmills were reversing the Earth rotation, I got a few puzzling looks …

RIK ROBERTS ORICA SPEAKER

And then, when I informed them that a solar energy expansion pilot program in Seattle was a major failure I won them back.

There was just enough “true” mixed in with the “false” that it made for a great surprise.

Here is what the client had to say …

“Rik was a great addition to our conference of joint ventures & independent distributors. He had great ideas on how to trick the audience into believing he was an industry expert who we soon figured out knew very little about our industry. He was responsive to my communications, punctual at our event & everyone really enjoyed his comedic routine. His timing was spot-on, the topics were universal and he did a great Barney Fife!!

– Patty Poole, Orica

Palmyra, MO “Expert Weather Predictor” Fake Speaker Appearance

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

What do you get when you cross a stand-up comedian with false credentials?  A fake expert on weather prediction! I recently had the opportunity to speak to a group in Palmyra, MO for B. & S. Insurance.

They wanted to through a curveball to the farmers attending the annual meeting. Buy, were they surprised when the “Current Al Roker Award Winner” told them solar energy was burning the paws off of baby squirrels!

Frank Burch had to approach the “expert” and ask him to step aside while he introduced the “comedian” who had just arrived.

This is what the client had to say about the experience …

Rik Roberts was the entertainment for our two annual farmer meetings. His clean comedy was funny and engaging for our diverse group of farmers. In the days since his performance, we have had many calls and compliments thanking us for having such a good speaker. He was wonderful to work with, and our customers enjoyed the show. Rik was probably the nicest speaker on and off stage that we have had in the past 15 years. I would recommend Rik Roberts for any event that wants a truly entertaining comedy show.
