Tennessee Based





Rik Roberts

Comedian, Speaker, Barney Fife Impersonator

  Rik Roberts is a Nashville, TN based comedian and speaker who focuses on providing 100% clean comedy and creative keynotes to groups who need a fun and engaging program.

Most recently seen on Pure Flix Comedy All-Stars, Rik keeps his humor relevant and easy to relate to. As a father of two young kids, he has found there are enough real life situations that we can all laugh at without going “below the belt”. Family friendly comedy is his specialty. Crafting comedy club level funny along with church clean content, his programs are a good fit for corporate groups, fund raising events, awards ceremonies and faith based events.

His emphasis on storytelling paved the way towards his speaking career. Just like in comedy, Rik keeps the pace of his keynote programs up using stories, facts, current events, visuals and crowd participation to make the points relevant to each group.

Rik grew up in Kentucky working alongside his father on tobacco farms. Later, he also logged in several Summers on thoroughbred horse farms in and around Lexington, KY. He draws upon these experiences along with the rural way of life in his programs.

A huge Andy Griffith Show fan, Rik developed a “Mayberry Method” approach to his business. After seeing increases of 34% in his first year after implementing the program, he decided to share the process with others in a keynote program of the same name. His slight resemblance to the bumbling deputy comes in handy when he takes the stage as Barney Fife.

Rik met his wife at a comedy club in 1998 and they have been married since 2002. He spends his time off stage writing songs – many of which are aired daily on SiriusXM radio’s LaughUSA and Jeff & Larry’s Comedy Round Up channels.

He’s appeared on:

  •          Comedy All-Stars (Pure Flix)
  •          Chonda Pierce’s “Stand Up For Families” (Dove Channel)
  •          “20 Greatest Redneck Moments” (CMT)
  •          “The Henry Cho Comedy Show” (Great American Country)
  •          “Bananas Family Comedy” (SONY)
  •          “L.O.L. Comedy” (Syndicated)
  •          Car Talk (NPR)
 
Rik is a member of the National Speakers Association and is the current President of the Christian Comedy Association.

Aside from his keynotes and comedy shows, Rik teaches comedy writing workshops across the country and online through his “School of Laughs”. He also releases bi-monthly episodes of the School Of Laughs Podcast.

“Roaming Barney Fife”

Sometimes your event needs a little extra security!

Having Rik appear as Barney Fife is one way to make sure your group has a truly unique experience. There are a variety of ways to utilize “America’s Favorite Deputy”. You can have the deputy:
  • “Arrest” individuals at the event with inside info you provide
  • Check nametags at the door
  • Mingle during social hour
  • Pose for pictures
  • Help hand out door prizes
  • Energize an auction and encourage bidders
  • Announce “safety award winners”
  • Patrol fairs, festivals and trade show halls


RIK ROBERTS REVIEWS

This is our third time hiring Rik Roberts as our keynote speaker for our annual customer conference. I have to tell you our customers just love this guy. His comedy is 100% clean. And he even weaves in real business ideas relative to customer service. It's a total home run. I can't speak highly enough about Rik and his talents and what he will bring to your conference, your training sessions, your employees and your customers. Just absolutely top notch. I can't recommend him high enough.
J.S., COO, EXCELERON (VERIFIED @EXCELERON.COM)

This was the second time we had Rik entertain for our company. Always funny and knows how to keep the entire room laughing from start to finish. Not often an entertainer takes the time to interact with the guests before and after a performance. A great down to earth guy that can put a funny spin on all of our day to day lives. Look forward to having him entertain for us again in the future. His Barney Fife is spot on and always a big hit with our employees.
M.M., RIVERSTONE GROUP, INC. (VERIFIED @RIVERSTONEGRP.COM)

I can't say enough great things about Rik! He showed up and was enthusiastic to speak to our group of sales professionals so early in the morning. We are a tough crowd, what can I say, and Rik really had everyone laughing and motivated after his performance. We took away some valuable listening lessons from his "Listen Up - Laugh it Up" presentation and would highly recommend Rik to anyone that needs to add a little motivation and laughter to any meeting! Thank you Rik for a clean comedy routine and words of wisdom!

The Home Builders Association of Alabama hired Rik Roberts to follow a long awards program and dinner. That's a tough act for any entertainer to follow but Rik was able to keep the audience in their seats by immediately capturing their interest. Then he kept their interest with a blend of hilarious observations and stories, everyone stayed laughing the whole time. Although it was a room full of adults on a Friday evening, he understood it was a professional gathering and kept the humor PG; which was appreciated. When Rik finished his set, he didn't just take off, he stayed and chatted with our members for a little while. He was a hit. We highly recommend Rik for any gathering in need of a good comedian who can do impressions, sing and play the guitar!

"I really appreciate all the time and effort you took to work with us to plan the "imposter" presentation. All the advance prep, your research and attention to detail was key in establishing believability...It takes quite a bit of effort to make a room full of behavioral health professionals think you are and expert in neurological science, and you certainly had them. In fact, you were so convincing you had my boss writing notes and she was in on your act from the beginning! And the transition to your comedy act was wonderful. The crowd really enjoyed your material...there was quite a bit of buzz afterward. Folks were talking about your act as they exited the ballroom and some were delighted to have recognized you from your television and radio appearances. Our folks are a hardworking group and they deal with a bunch of tough stuff...to see them really enjoy themselves was gratifying."

Thank you very much for performing for our group. Our team at Zoetis thought you did a great job and we and our guests thoroughly enjoyed your performance. We've done many of these events in the past and this was the first time we had a comedian as entertainment. So, we were a little nervous about whether our guests, who come from all over the USA and Canada, would enjoy this. We need not have worried because your routine was perfect for our guests and, not least of all, you were hilarious. Don Knotts' legacy is in good hands. We, also, appreciated that you spent some time after your act to talk with us and our guests which was an added bonus.

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!

Thank you for your wonderful presentation. CML had a get-together in the evening for all employees and company representatives; everyone was singing your praises. We had a lot of technical information we went through, and they were definitely ready for the comedy relief you offered at the end of the day! I will definitely mention your name to anyone looking for a speaker for their event, and we will keep you in mind if we do another event in the future. Thank you so very much for offering wonderful common-sense business information sprinkled with engaging humor that was enjoyed by all in attendance!

Rik Roberts presented to our group the "Mayberry Method". He was very well received by all level of employees. Not one person, in the audience of 190, lost interest during the 90 minutes he "entertained" and educated our group. We even had an added bonus of unexpected interaction of an official Kansas Highway Patrol Officer that assisted in his great message of how to react/respond when in an unusual or difficult situation. Many employees have requested to have him back again!

Rik has a natural gift of commanding the attention of his audience. He kept the audience engaged and involved throughout his performance. Rik leveraged his Midwestern roots and memories to mold and blend stories that our entire group could relate to. Anyone considering booking Rik for their event should do so in great confidence, as he will deliver the necessary and appropriate message effortlessly.
