“Rik is funny and a great businessman, but perhaps his best quality is his desire to help others succeed. I walked away from his comedy business classes with some information that far exceeded the cost of the class. I highly recommend everything he offers! If he was a Cracker Barrel waiter, he would wear an apron with Four Stars!” – Addison Tweedy

Among other topics, we’ll discuss …
  • What goes in my promo kit?
  • When should I approach the clubs?
  • How do I get in with bookers?
  • How do I promote myself? Do I need a web site?
  • What is deductible?
  • How much do comedians make?
  • What market best suits my act?
  • What is a realistic timeline for my career?
  • What merchandise sells? Where do I get it?
  • What should I do for free, and where do I draw the line?
  • What’s the difference between a comedian and a funny speaker?


Comedy business workshops are the best way to shave years off the learning curve and get on track from day one. While I can’t remove all trial and error from your experience. I can help you understand why some approaches work better than others.
