Born in Lexington, KY, Rik Roberts was instilled with down-home values and the type of politeness and courtesy you get used to in a small town. After graduating high school, Rik earned a Bachelor's Degree in Communications from Bethany College in West Virginia. He started his comedy career in Columbus, OH while working a day job at Simon & Schuster Publishing. Early comedy experiences included landing a spot with the nation's top touring improvisation comedy troupe "Midwest Comedy Tool & Die."

Beginning in 1997, Rik started headlining at America's top comedy clubs. Nearly ten years later, Rik has become a favorite at The Improv, The Punchline, Funny Bone, The Stardome, Zanies - you name it! It was this background that led to his current career of corporate entertaining.

Rik moved to Nashville in 1998 and turned up the heat on his career. He quickly appeared in videos on Great American Country and began making regular appearances on syndicated morning shows. His dedication to "clean" comedy earned him an episode of the Emmy award winning "Bananas Family Comedy" show. Shortly after that, he was tapped to expand his Barney Fife Impression on "Comedy at Large."

Rik enjoys spending time with his wife and their new baby boy. Watch for his upcoming documentary "Daddy's First Year" - a humorous look at the preparation a father-to-be makes before and the adjustments that follow childbirth. He also enjoys teaching comedy classes at his home club "Zanies" in Nashville, TN.

Rik's act is multi-dimensional. In addition to his stand-up routines, he sings his original comedy songs, and he can "re-appear" as America's Favorite Deputy to really bring down the house! This triple punch guarantees something for everyone. If your event requires an entertainer who will not put getting laughs ahead of maintaining dignity - Rik is the right man for the job!

Rik realizes the difference between "doing a gig at a comedy club" and "professionally entertaining a diverse audience who appreciates the cleaner side of comedy." Rik realized early on that corporate and private groups require a different kind of performer. One who is upbeat, positive, professional and considerate of the audience - a performer who will not jeopardize the reputation of those who hired him.

Delivering the appropriate show means knowing the audience. Rik prides himself on interacting with the group in a way that is fresh and inviting - not crude and demeaning. He can "customize" his show to suit your needs. This ability alone sets him apart from the other clean comedians.

Join a growing list of folks who have hired Rik for their corporate events, sales meetings, awards banquets and holiday parties. Comedy + Music = Good Clean Fun!
