Rik Roberts spent his youth in Kentucky working on tobacco and horse farms. His interest in becoming the next Tom Brokaw – or perhaps host of Saturday Night Live – inspired him to chase after a college education.
After earning a degree in communications from Bethany College, Rik worked for Simon & Schuster in Columbus, OH. He joined a nationally touring comedy troupe “Midwest Comedy Tool & Die [MCTD] in 1992. Shortly thereafter, he decided to jump head first into stand-up comedy. He now has over twenty years of headlining experience across the United States and abroad.
His comedy is 100% clean and appropriate for each audience. He’s appeared in his own episode of the award winning BANANAS COMEDY SHOW which features the nation's top "clean" comedians. Believing that the world needs more clean comedy, Rik teaches comedy writing workshops across the country and online through his “School of Laughs”. Rik spends his time off stage writing comedy songs – many of which are aired daily on SiriusXM radio’s LaughUSA and Blue Collar Radio channels.
His love of all thing country led to him being featured on CMT's "20 Greatest Redneck Moments". He also was a writer and performer on “The Henry Cho Comedy Show” on Great American Country.
Rik is a proud father of two and happy husband at home in Nashville, TN and is a member of the National Speakers Association and is a board member of the Christian Comedy Association.
