Chamber Dinner will feature comedian Rik Roberts

Posted: Friday, December 2, 2016

The 93rd Annual Huntington County Chamber of Commerce Dinner will be held Monday evening, January 16, 2017 at the PAL Club, 2099 Riverside Drive. The event will begin with a social time at 6 p.m. followed by dinner catered by Kim’s Katered Affair at 6:45 p.m. Rik Roberts will be the featured entertainer for the evening.

After earning a degree in communications from Bethany College, Roberts worked for Simon & Schuster in Columbus, Ohio. He joined a nationally touring comedy troupe “Midwest Comedy Tool & Die” in 1992. Shortly thereafter, he decided to jump head first into stand-up comedy. He now has over twenty years of headlining experience across the United States and abroad.

Roberts spends his time off stage writing songs – many of which are aired daily on SiriusXM radio’s LaughUSA and Blue Collar Radio channels.

With the countless hours onstage, Roberts has evolved into a master storyteller. His emphasis on storytelling paved the way towards his speaking career. Just like in comedy, Roberts keeps the pace of his keynote programs up using stories, facts, current events, visuals and crowd participation to make the points relevant to each group.

Roberts is a member of the National Speakers Association and is a board member of the Christian Comedy Association.

The cost for the event is $35 per person. To make your reservations and meal selections for the Chamber Annual Dinner, RSVP by sending in your reply invitation, call the Chamber office at (260) 356-5300 or e-mail skimmel@huntington-chamber.com by Monday, January 9, 2017.
