Rik Roberts

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.As a married man, and father of two young kids, Rik 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. His programs are a good fit for association meetings, corporate groups, fund raising events, awards ceremonies and faith-based events.

Rik grew up in Kentucky working alongside his father on tobacco farms. The long days in the hots sun gave him a work ethic and motivation that he still taps into today. He spent eight summers working on thoroughbred horse farms. He often draws upon these experiences along with the rural way of life in his speaking engagements.

In 2018, Rik was featured in his own half hour comedy special Put Down The Sweet Tea on the Dry Bar comedy channel.

Most recently, Rik co-starred in the movie Mayberry Man. In the movie, Rik plays a Barney Fife impersonator at a Mayberry Festival.

You can also hear Rik’s comedy daily on SiriusXM satellite radio channels Laugh USA and Jeff & Larry’s Comedy Roundup.

Rik Roberts was absolutely the best entertainment that we’ve ever had. We were very pleased with his services!

Volunteer State Bank
Our company recently had Rik Roberts to entertain our management team for the second time. Both times we felt we got two great entertainers for the price of one. As Rik Roberts, his standup comedy act is hilarious. Enter Barney Fife and the fun is taken to a new level. Rik and Barney are funny, engaging with the audience, and very entertaining. We will certainly ask him back a third time!

Florida Farm Bureau Insurance
We were celebrating the 75th Anniversary of our charter and Rik provided the laughter, levity, and fun for all in attendance. His early morning presentation was clean, enjoyable, and set a positive tone for the entire day. Rik was the perfect speaker for our event and his “Barney Fife” was spot-on.
