Rik Roberts

Rik grew up in Kentucky working on tobacco farms with his father. When the crop was in the barn, he would moonlight working with Thoroughbreds on some of the most beautiful land in the world. Whether in the field, on a tractor, or working out the horses, the rural way of living has always been in his blood.

After graduating from Bethany College in West Virginia, he worked for Simon & Schuster publishing company. But the cubicle life was not for this country boy. He has now been performing for over 24 years. At last count, he had taken stage over 5600 times, including 45 states, 3 countries and several times on the back of a flatbed truck!

His uncanny impersonation of Don Knotts as "Barney Fife" will take your group back to the days of good clean fun. His humor resonates with folks who work hard and want to have a great time. He’s been featured on several TV shows including CMT's 20 Greatest Redneck Moments, The Henry Cho Show, Laugh Out Loud, and Tennessee Crossroads. He also had his own episode of the Emmy® Award winning Bananas Family Comedy. Rik is a regular on Blue Collar Radio and Laugh USA. His six CD's have been featured on countless syndicated radio shows such as Bob & Tom, John Boy and Billy, Rick and Bubba and NPR's Car Talk.

Rik has developed a reputation as a presenter who can take even the toughest of crowds and bring them together for a truly unforgettable event. Using his down home demeanor and love of the simple life, he quickly forms a bond with the audience and takes them on a laugh-filled journey.

Rik is a proud father of two, husband to one, and resides in Nashville, TN. He is a member of the National Speakers Association and Christian Comedy Association.

"After a string of meetings Rik Roberts showed up with a sense of humor that had us laughing for an hour straight. Not only are his jokes and observations funny, his interactions with the audience - all spontaneous - were just as funny if not funnier. This is the second time we've hired Rik and both times he was just super - and so easy to work with! 5 stars all around!!"
