AG SPEAKER RIK ROBERTS BRINGS THE LAUGHS

Monday, February 10th, 2020

AG Speaker Rik Roberts knows what it is like to work. With a background working on a tobacco farm Rik relates to farmers more than most speakers. Helping his Dad out at a young age in the fields taught him about work ethic. It taught him to appreciate good times. It also taught him how to prepare for times that are tough as well.

If you need an AG speaker who can keep it 100% clean – yet 100% funny – Rik is the guy for you. He also spent 4 years working with Thoroughbred horses. The beautiful (and sometimes stubborn) animals taught Rik to laugh at the things you can’t change. The hours mucking stalls and mowing fields gave him time to “think” and sometimes get into a little mischief. Above all, it gave him time to use his imagination.

When you start planning your next event, consider Rik Roberts. You can request his “Ten Tips for a Perfect Party” checklist with no obligation. Just send an email to him rik@rikroberts.com and request “Ten Tips” in the subject heading.

“Rik Roberts was great. He connected with our audience immediately and had them laughing from start to finish. We had him start the show dressed as Barney Fife issuing citations to a few of our guests. He was a huge hit and our audience loved him!”

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.

Barney Fife Invitations

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!

Mayberry Method at Collierville Chamber of Commerce

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!”

Kanette Keough-Rodgers | President, Collierville Chamber of Commerce

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!”
