Rickey first took the stage at an amateur comedy night at The Comedy Club in this hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. From there it was on to the big leagues touring the country with such acts as George Wallace, Will Downing, Dottie People and Najee. Rickey' television appearances include Showtime at The Apollo, HBO's Def Comedy Jam and Snaps, The Nashville Network, Uptown Comedy Club, Comic Escape, and of course, BET's own, ComicView, where he competed in the show's notorious Grandstand.
Rickey takes everyday situations and turns them into everyday humor. He does it all with the help of a few good imaginary friends of his. Such hilarious friends include 90-year-old church lady, Ms. Bernice Jenkins, along with Lil Daryl, a character that gained much notoriety on BET's Live from LA.
Rickey studied at Tuskegee University. He is a 1992 graduate of Alabama State University, where he earned a Bachelor's degree in English. When in his hometown of Birmingham, otherwise know as Magic City, you can catch Rickey a part of the "Hometeam" Morning Show on WBHJ-95.7. "Ms. Bernice Jenkins" can also be heard with her daily church announcements on Heaven 610.
Rickey was formerly the house MC for the Cobbblestone Comedy Theatre in Birmingham, and is busy distinguishing himself as a comedic genius in other comedy clubs, theatres and colleges throughout the world.
