Cox Financial Group – Client Appreciation Dinner

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2019

A client appreciation dinner is a great way to celebrate 25 yrs of business. Gather your clients and reward them with food, facts and fun at a great dinner!  Based Hudson, TX, Randy Cox provides financial services and takes great care of his clients. We had a blast the entire evening!

“FANTASTIC JOB!  Everyone raved about your performance.  Barney was great just milling around and Rik was VERY FUNNY!  THANK YOU so much for making the trip.”

A note from Rik:

Client Appreciation Dinners are a great opportunity to spend time with your people outside of the “transactional” space. You have more time to enjoy their company, share stories and genuinely show appreciation for your clients. Too often the pressures of time constraints prevent this from happening during an appointment.

A dinner is also a great way to allow your clients to meet each other, have a meal and ideally – a LOT of FUN.

That is where a clean comedian can really come in handy. I only perform clean and have the heart of a servant. So you get a wholesome show from a guy who wants your night to be successful. And … I can also appear as a Barney Fife Impersonator to really add in some bonus laughs and photo ops!

Having “Fife” work the room is a great way to add laughs into any otherwise “stale” environment. Let Barney greet them at the door, mingle while they are in line for food, or simply go table to table and interact with your guests. There are always great on-on-one laughs as part of the roaming “Barney Fife” portion.

I would love to hear from you if you are planning a client appreciation dinner. Your clients deserve a fun evening. And you don’t want a hassle from your entertainment. You want good, clean fun. Lets talk!

Barney Fife Impersonator in Frankenmuth, MI

Tuesday, October 8th, 2019

My job as a Barney Fife Impersonator is just too much fun.  Along with my 100% clean comedy show, I can appear at your event as the famous bumbling deputy from Mayberry.

Some clients go above and beyond to create a cool Mayberry vibe. OLV Investment Group created the awesome “Selfie Frame” for folks to get a pic with the deputy. They also sent out invitations using the frame to tie things together.

OLV Investment Group Testimonial:

“Rik Roberts did an exceptional job!! From the time he came in as Barney Fife having pictures made, to mingling with clients, to visiting with people all through dinner, it helped to create a warm evening for our Client Appreciation Dinner! His performance was very engaging and fun! Thank you Rik for two successful evenings honoring our clients!”

If you need a Barney Fife Impersonator for your event, feel free to connect with me by filling out the contact form on this site. Or by sending and email to Rik@RikRoberts.com.

There are a variety of ways to incorporate the deputy into your event. Roaming Fife is a term I use to describe mingling with guests before or after my comedy performance. It’s comparable to “table magic” where magicians go from table to table performing a short trick. But with Fife, it’s witty conversations and a few trademark  “sniffs” while guests get a picture with the bullet toting deputy.

Other options include bursting into an event and issuing “citations” based on inside information you provide in advance. This is an especially fun way to acknowledge or recognize folks for great work. Whether they are “falsifying documents” by working more hours than they report, or “speeding” out the door Friday afternoon, we can have some fun with Fife!

Cooking with (Propane) Gas!

Wow – I had so much fun I had working with the folks at North Carolina Petroleum & Convenience Marketers at their recent convention. These people work hard and are INCREDIBLY family-focused. The event kicked off with a dinner where I got to provide a clean comedy show.

The next morning I appeared as “Barney Fife” to “arrest” a few unsuspecting attendees.

And the third day I delivered my productivity keynote “The Mayberry Method”.

All in all I was impressed with their drive and character. If you are in the Carolinas, make sure you get your propane from one of the dealers who are part of NCPCM!

Valentine’s Day Fun

Saturday, February 9th, 2019

If you are like me it can be hard to share your feelings. Valentine’s Day can put the pressure on you to express yourself even if you aren’t very eloquent or articulate. This song communicates those feelings the way a kid might say them. Hope you like it and get a chuckle or two as you watch.

“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

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!
