“…with the people who say that I’m “difficult to work with,” I want you to look at where they are, and look at where I am.”
Rickey Smiley is an incredibly entertaining comedian and radio host. He’s been doing his syndicated radio show for 12 years now but he continues to supplement or leverage his radio career while continuing to do sold out weekend comedy shows. While he pokes fun at the black church he is a devout believer who feels most at home in it as well as away from all the pomp and circumstance of show business. During our interview, he was at a relative’s house named Ms. Jenny, in the projects in Alabama. He had to let the elderly woman in the background know that he was on an important call when she was trying to have a conversation with him.
