065: Rik Roberts - Comedy under Christian constraints
Rik Roberts runs the School of Laughs. But not in Australia. Rik is Kentucky born and now lives in Nashville, Tennessee, which will explain our two contrasting accents. As you can guess, like the School of Hard Knock Knocks, the School of Laughs is a stand-up comedy school.
That's where the similarities end. Rik, in contrast to just about all of our previous interviewees identifies as a Christian comedian.
In this School of Hard Knock Knocks podcast, you'll hear a unique perspective on finding the funny within the constraints of Christianity, and how being squeaky clean can be great for business - at least in the USA.
And while I have your attention, the upcoming Melbourne and Adelaide comedy courses are filling up quickly, with guest comedians Joe White, Glynn Nicholas, and Greg Fleet. If you're interested in kick starting your stand-up comedy career, or getting your set polished from seasoned comedians, then be sure to sign up to our August and September courses - while you can still get the early bird price. Who doesn't like a discount?! Amen!
