Sunset Retirement Communities, Jenison, MI

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!

“Rik Roberts understood our audience. He worked the room as “Fife” and raised the level of engagement and participation from everyone. Rik’s material is genuinely funny and appropriate for all ages. We are glad we found him.”

Kentucky Baptist Convention

Monday, June 12th, 2017

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.”

NEBRASKA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES

Home visits can be stressful and rewarding all at once. My goal for this presentation was to reward the workers with an hour of stress-free laughter. What a great time and a super-nice group!

RIK ROBERTS COMEDY

 

“I am so glad we made the choice to have Rik come to Nebraska for our conference! As the work our home visitors do is very stressful, and many of the topics of the conference were “heavy,” the break for comedy during our luncheon was a perfect way for our participants to “Recharge!” Rik was a joy to work with, extremely professional and 100% appropriate for our audience. We had a lot of wonderful feedback!”

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.

Chamber of Commerce Fun!

Monday, February 13th, 2017

What a fun group and great time we had in Northern Indiana!

I love performing for Chambers of Commerce. Being around business leaders is inspiring. And, I know they always can use a good laugh. Here is what Steve Kimmel, Executive Director of the Huntington County Chamber had say afterwards.

“I’m sending you a big “thank you” for the hilarious night of comedy you provided at our Annual Dinner. Your sense of humor is spot on with the folks of Huntington County, Indiana. I heard from several people that the entertainment was one of the best the Chamber has had in years. Thank you for driving up from Nashville to spend the evening with us. We certainly plan to have you back.”

I hope to return sometime down the road!
