About
Rick March was born and raised in Chicago he has been slinging barbs and wisecracks since he was born. His first words were to the doctor in the delivery room, 'Go bleep yourself, its cold out here!' A steady diet of donuts and self-loathing combined with a passion for making people laugh, Cranky Ricky has been described as 'Don Rickles on Steroids'.

He has performed at clubs and parties across the country and has contributed to MAD Magazine. The founder of Best Comedy Roasts and its 'Roastmaster', Ricky leads the team into all of its roasting adventures.

Rick March or Aric, to the people whom he owes money to, has always been a wise guy (not Soprano style either).

When kids watched cartoons, Rick favored Burns and Allen reruns. When the Beatles were taking over America, Rick spun Bill Cosby and Allen Sherman records.


When Rick was a disk jockey in Syracuse, he first introduced the public to his menagerie of accents. He recorded voice over commercials for bug spray and wrote and produced a radio show called The World According to Myron Putchnick.

A couple of decades and a lot of laughs later, he's back on stage. From Zanies to The Comedy Store to anyone who will listen, Rick slings his sarcastic barbs and observations on the inane to make fun of everything stupid and everyone too serious about life

What can I say, other than WOW! We booked Rick and his two pals for our fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club, and they were absolutely phenomenal! I have heard absolutely nothing but positive from everyone involved, and was told by several people the night of the show that we need to do the event again (look for Comedy for a Cause part 2 sometime next year). Rick was extremely easy to get ahold of, and was always just an email or phone call away. Anytime I had a question, he was there to answer it for me. If you're looking for a very affordable, VERY funny night of comedy, Rick March is your guy!

Rick is a very funny guy and a professional, to boot. He spent a lot of time researching our company prior to the event, interviewed key individuals in the company and attended a company mixer all to help elevate his material. Rick was willing to bounce ideas beforehand and put in the time to appreciate the subtleties of our corporate culture. An entertaining fellow and a good human being! Rick will do everything in his power to make sure the event is a success.

We had originally hired Rick and when I called to confirm for our X-mas party he told me he would be bringing 3 more comedians. What a great surprise! They all did a wonderful job and everyone had a great time. Thanks so much Rick and I would recommend them to anyone.

We received $5000 worth of entertainment for a $500 price. Well worth the money. The comedy show has been the talk of our campus ever since the event. Fantastic performers...would highly recommend!!!

I unfortunately could not give Rick a higher score than 5 as that is all you would allow. He was AMAZING! Numerous people said to me the next day that their cheeks were still sore from laughing so hard the night before! Several people told me that was the best comedy routine they had ever seen. Some of the ad lib stuff was right on and I know there was no way in advance that he could have set that up. Not only was his delivery spectacular but his facial expressions added to the comedy. I hopefully will have the need to hire him again. I would highly recommend anyone who had the need for a comic to hire him.

I am very pleased with hiring Rick March for my wedding. It was in a church so it had to be clean material and he did a fantastic job. Everyone was laughing hysterically. I was worried about my makeup because I was crying from laughing so hard. He was a crowd pleaser and got everyone involved.

Rich March and his team did a wonderful job roasting us at our wedding. He used the information we gave him to create his notes and had great inprov jokes throughout the show by feeling out the audience. Our guests were non-stop laughing throughout the entire show and we would recommend him to any bride and groom who are looking for unique entertainment ideas for their wedding.
