“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


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.
