2022 Keynote Speaker: Rik Roberts

Rik Roberts

Rik Roberts is a Nashville, TN based comedian and speaker who focuses on providing 100% clean comedy and creative keynotes to groups who need a fun and engaging program.

As a married man, and father of two young kids, Rik has found there are enough real life situations that we can all laugh at without going “below the belt”. Family friendly comedy is his specialty. His programs are a good fit for association meetings, corporate groups, fund raising events, awards ceremonies and faith based events.

Rik grew up in Kentucky working alongside his father on tobacco farms. The long days in the hots sun gave him a work ethic and motivation that he still taps into today. He spent eight summers working on thoroughbred horse farms. He often draws upon these experiences along with the rural way of life in his speaking engagements.

Most recently, Rik co-starred in “Mayberry Man.” This family- friendly movie was filmed in the Fall of 2019 and Rik plays a “Barney Fife Impersonator” at a Mayberry Festival.

KADPF is currently seeking sponsors for the keynote speaker for the 2022 Annual Conference.
