Clean comedians are the go-to choice for many event organizers nowadays. Being able to choose an entertainer who will not offend the audience – no matter their age – is a great option.
However, there’s another reason why event organizers book clean stand-up comedians: people know them. If a few years ago everyone was crazy about comics like Louis C.K, Bill Burr, Craig Ferguson, Seth MacFarlane and Amy Schumer, things have changed.

It is precisely what Rik Roberts is all about. Read on to find out more about one of the funniest clean comedians in the world.
