Title: The Rickey Smiley & Friends Comedy Show
Location: The Cannon Center, 255 N. Main St, Memphis, TN 38103
Description: Marcus Dorris of Mix & Mingle Entertainment Presents…… The Rickey Smiley & Friends Comedy Show LIVE at the Cannon Center FRIDAY June 20th! Smiley appeared as the host of the 2000 season of BET’s “ComicView” program. He has also appeared on “Showtime at the Apollo”, HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam”, HBO’s “Snaps”, “The Nashville Network”, “Uptown Comedy Club”, and “Comic Escape”. His original comedy routines often feature the role-play of fictional characters such as “Bernice Jenkins” (AKA Granny Swims, Ms. Johnson or Mrs. Francis), “Lil’ Daryl”, “Rusty Dale” and “Beauford”. Bernice Jenkins has a grandson named Rufus, who’s a stereotype of the modern day “Gangsta”. He is referenced in “Two Of My Toes Fell Off” and another prank phone call where Smiley calls a pharmacy.
Smiley became the morning show personality for radio station KBFB in Dallas, Texas in April 2004. The show features the trademark prank calls, as well as news, information and the latest hip hop music. In 2008, Smiley signed a deal with Syndicated One (a syndicated radio division of Radio One) to take the show nationwide, and The Rickey Smiley Morning Show is now heard on a number of mainstream urban radio stations.
