“It's Funny Now” – STAND-UP COMEDY
100% clean and original humor
Rik has 20+ yrs experience as a clean comedian. Sit back and relax as he takes you on a fun filled ride through life's experiences and adventures. Shows can range up to an hour and are a perfect fit for any group who wants to laugh hard, take it easy and unite through laughter. The full one hour show is 70% Stand-up and 30% musical comedy with optional audience participation.
“The Mayberry Method” – ELIMINATE DISTRACTIONS, INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY
This speech starts with a bang!
Imagine your attendees surprised by America's Favorite Deputy blowing a whistle as he enters the conference room. Next, he pulls out a few “citations” that he has written up on members of your group. The group belly laughs as the “harmless offenses” are revealed. Once the group is engaged, Rik steps out of character and delivers a speech about increasing productivity by eliminating distraction, managing time more effectively and setting clearer goals.
“Takin' Care of Business” – INNOVATION, COLLABORATION, PERFORMANCE
Make your company rock!
Your business is your music and your employees are your band. Are you ready to rock? Learn about the 3 keys to rockin' success -- Innovation, Collaboration and Performance. This speech kicks off with some live guitar and wraps up with a group sing-a-long. In between, your group will learn the keys to team focused techniques designed to inspire and create.
“Game Winning Drive” – CHARACTER, LEADERSHIP, INTEGRITY
Lead the followers
This speech is great for leadership conferences, sports banquets and award dinners. Taking stories right out of today's sports headlines and history's record books, we will explore the steps that lead to real winning. By emphasizing team work and integrity, your attendees will identify leadership qualities that they can develop to become a champion in their own right.
“Accept, Commit, Explore” – TEAM BUILIDING THROUGH IMPROVISATION
The A.C.E. approach to improvisation
This workshop kicks off with a brief outline of the three steps needed to build a killer team. That is followed by hands-on team building improvisational exercises that are as fun as they are useful. The exercises reinforce the three keys until each group of employees develops a common base for success.
This workshop is led by Rik and former members of national touring improv troupe Midwest Comedy Tool & Die.
“Imposter Speaker” – CORPORATE PRANKSTER!
An outspoken speaker, clueless and hilarious
The audience thinks they are about to be addressed by a motivational speaker who is an expert on a topic (you get to pick). Rik comes in as a character and begins a speech which seems to be on target. Then, slowly the audience realizes he is an imposter. Facts, figures and philosophies are way off base. Once everyone is in on the joke, Rik steps out of character to deliver his stand-up comedy show. In the past Rik has appeared as:
* an expert on Lean Six Sigma,
* a speaker who gives the right speech but in the wrong banquet room,
* a speaker on “focus” who can't seem to pull it all together,
* an undercover military figure who has tracked an employee's career,
and more. You get to play a role in picking the topic and character. Rik does the rest!

Many great people influenced me to become a comedian. Without a doubt, Don Knotts was the biggest inspiration. Whether it was the classic bumbling deputy, or the Disney movies he did with Tim Conway ... he always had me in stitches!

Celebration in Austin, TX on 09/13/2008
"Rik was gracious, accomodating and did exactly what he said he would. It was a tough weekend because of Hurricane Ike but he made it all work. This was a birthday party for my wife and the "audience" was mixed....including a number of small (2 and under) children. He worked them all into the routine and had fun. Our guests liked him a lot and I received lots of positive feedback on his performance both as Barney and his "stand up" comedy. I'm glad I found him and would certainly recommend him to others."

I highly recommend Rik."
