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!

Laugh All Night – Athens, AL

Monday, 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.

Columbia Marking Tools, Detroit, MI

Monday, May 29th, 2017

“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.”

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 …

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.
