I enjoyed getting to hang out with him for the few hours he was with us. Larry shared some seriously hilarious stories that connected with our group. Even though he's from 6 hours away, I'm sure some of our folks felt like Larry had grown up right there in our own neighborhoods as he told jokes and stories about people who could have been us, our relatives, or people we know. We all had a good time."
"Rik Roberts return performance was even funnier than the first time he entertained us. The Fairfield Glade Resident Services Comedy Night had a packed crowd and were laughing all evening. Rik’s clean comedy and presentation were outstanding. 'Barney Fife' joined the fun and his presence made for a delightful show. We would love to have Rik back again."
"Rik Roberts offers the perfect combination of education and entertainment. As the keynote speaker for our Chamber's general membership luncheon, Rik began by engaged the audience with his dead-on imperination of Deputy Barney Fife. After some interactive fun with a few key business and community leaders in the room, he segwayed into a fantastic presentation about eliminating distractions in the workplace through the "Mayberry Method". The audience loved him, and everyone left with takeaways that can be easily implemented to increase productivity in any organization. Rik was a pleasure to work with, and I highly recommend him!"
"We had Rik Roberts come in to present Game Winning Drive to our annual agency off site meeting. Rik really honed in on issues such as team work, unity, accountability, and owning your mistakes. He did it in a judgment-free way that gave us take-aways and connecting points we can take back to our home offices and apply. It was extremely well done, very professional and with plenty of laughs. Rik hit the nail on the head, and managed to not ruffle any feathers. He is an expert at people and it shows.

Larry's ability to tie in bits from our other training earlier in the day made it that much funnier! It was just what we needed after a long day of training!"

"John Felts was absolutely amazing! He exceeded our expectations when he had completed his performance. He involved the crowd which everyone loved. He also used a wide variety of material to ensure he targeted all of the audience. John also took time before the dinner started to socialize with the crowd and that probably enabled him to include them in some of his show.
