Rik Roberts is a very funny man. He’s a comedian. A podcaster. A speaker and a student of comedy. (He runs a comedy podcast in which he interviews a ton of awesome speakers.)
In this conversation Brad and Rik talk about how Rik got started in comedy, how he transitioned to being a keynote speaker, and what in the heck it is like to do online or virtual comedy through a Zoom camera. (Spoiler: it ain’t easy.)
What many people don’t understand about motivational speakers and comedians is that the performance is only a small part of the package. It’s show business. And the “business” part is probably as hard as the on-stage part. Rik is really good at both. And this fact is part of what makes him so fun to talk to.
