An Evening with Rickey Smiley

Birmingham native and local favorite Rickey Smiley returns to the ASC with an evening of hilarious stand-up (as himself) and sketch comedy – as his most outrageously funny character yet, Minister Joe Willie. Known for making millions laugh for 20- plus years as a comedian, TV host, and nationally syndicated radio personality, Smiley has taken the world by storm with his unique blend of comedy and originality. With the distinct ability to take everyday observations and turn them into comedic gold, he is a standout in the entertainment world and one of the few "clean" comics among the upper echelon of contemporary stand-up acts. He is the only comedian who has had the honor of hosting BET's Comic View for two seasons. In 2007, Smiley became host of the Atlanta-based Rickey Smiley Morning Show, reaching more than 60 radio markets nationwide. He has released eight comedy CDs featuring hilarious prank phone calls, church announcements, and parodies. In addition, Smiley released his DVD special, Open Casket Sharp, which premiered on BET in fall 2011 and debuted at No. 1 on iTunes. He also co-created The Rickey Smiley Show, a sitcom airing on cable and satellite channel TV One, which stars Smiley in a role loosely based on his own life. It also stars former ArtPlay student and Make It Happen Performing Ensemble alumna Ajona Alexus. Smiley's show at the ASC is sure to be a sellout, so get your tickets early!
