Rickey Smiley

Rickey Smiley is a legendary comedian, actor, author, television host and award-winning radio host of the top-rated, nationally syndicated show, The Rickey Smiley Morning Show. A comedian for more than 30 years, Rickey is constantly performing across the country on his own theater tour and also makes special appearances on the Martin Lawrence-hosted, LIT AF Tour. Rickey’s tours often include a live band, which Rickey accompanies as an accomplished pianist and organist. Some of Rickey’s fan favorite characters include “Mrs. Bernice Jenkins,” “Lil’ Daryl,” “Joe Willie,” and “Beauford.” Rickey starred in the stand-up specials, Rickey Smiley: Open Casket Sharp and Comedy Central Presents: Rickey Smiley, and released eight bestselling albums including the #1 comedy album, Rickey Smiley: Prank Calls 6. Rickey started his career at The Stardome Comedy Club in Birmingham, AL, and for over a year until the pandemic in 2020, Rickey sold out every Monday night at the club with Rickey Smiley’s Comedy & Karaoke Night, hosted by Rickey with a live band.
