Virtual Event Solutions from Clean Comedian Rik Roberts

Virtual Event solutions are here! Add some fun and bring on a professional for your next Virtual Event with clean comedian Rik Roberts.

 

VIRTUAL EVENT SOLUTIONS

We all see the meeting industry landscape changing beneath our feet. Hybrid meetings, virtual meetings and online conferences are here for a few years at least. Make the most out of your event and hire a professional entertainer and emcee. Rik has a variety of virtual event solutions. Engagement should be your number one goal and no one engages better than a well trained clean comedian. With over thirty years experience, Rik Roberts can add value to your experience with dynamic virtual event solutions.

YOU ARE BUSY ENOUGH ALREADY!

As someone who has planned multiple conferences, Rik gets it! Keep the expenses down, the engagement up and the stress to a minimum. As the event emcee, Rik can lighten your load. His entertainment-driven interactive segments keep your attendees engaged with your conference content. You already have enough on your plate. You know you will be handling last second changes, fielding calls, answering texts – why add emcee to your list?

A SEASONED PRO ADDS VALUE

Rik has thirty years of experience entertaining, speaking and emceeing live events. His background in improvisation comes in handy when unpredictable situations arise. Working as the warm-up comedian for TBN he also understands how to work a camera and stay on time. If you need videos or other content created – he can help you there as well. Virtual event solutions like content creation aren’t offered by everyone.

HE IS LIKE A SWISS ARMY KNIFE

Flexibility, reliabilty and usefulness all describe the value of a quality emcee. Think of Rik more as a partner than an add on. Form the very first brainstorming call all the way through the last segment of your conference, Rik is there to help.

CALL TODAY

Every event is unique. Give Rik a call and he will brainstorm with you on how to craft the right package for your needs and budget. And if he isn’t a good fit, he will be happy to recommend someone else who is.

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!”

The bottom line is Rik Roberts will take the time to get to know your group. He will only perform the kind of comedy you would expect to hear around the courthouse in Mayberry.

“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.”

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!

Listen UP – Laugh it UP Hits Williamson County Young Professionals

RIK ROBERTS LISTEN UP LAUGH IT UP

“Rik Roberts, a professional corporate comedian and keynote speaker worked with Williamson Inc. to spearheaded a YP “Improv” Night where we learned through guided exercises with Rik how to be better listeners, conflict resolution, and teamwork skills. We had a blast and everyone was laughing all night. Everyone walked away with new perspective that they felt they could use in their work lives. I highly recommend switching up a chamber luncheon and trying something like this out.”
– Rachel Layton, WYPA

Comedian Rik Roberts at KACo Conference

 

“Thank you so much for your awesome performance at the Kentucky Association of Counties 43rd Annual Conference & Exposition held Nov. 9, 2017 at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky.

The feedback that we received was overwhelmingly positive. Our large group appreciated your clean humor. When in Louisville it’s hard to compete with 4th Street Live entertainment. However, you maintained to keep everyone in their seats during the hour long performance. It was a pleasure working with you and we look forward to working with you again in the future.”

  • Sonya Chesser, Executive Assistant / Kentucky Association of Counties

Listen Up Laugh It up is an interactive, hands on workshop empowering people to accomplish more through creative agreement, listening, and taking action. If this sounds like something your organization would benefit from, check out this link to a demo video: bit.ly/LuLuRR

Join me at the HUCKABEE tapings in Nashville!

Monday, December 18th, 2017

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.
