Rickey Smiley, who hosts the eponymously titled #1 syndicated urban radio show in the country (Reach Media), will tape his full-length comedy special on December 30 at the Lyric Theatre in his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. The momentous occasion marks the return of Smiley’s comedy to the big screen with his last comedy special 2011’s “Open Casket Sharp.”
Smiley has cultivated a loyal fan base over decades as a stand-up comedian, television host, actor, and radio personality. Some of his credits include “The Rickey Smiley Show” (TV One) and “Rickey Smiley For Real” (TV One), a reality show about his colorful family, and the feature films “All About the Benjamins” and Ice Cube’s “Friday After Next.”
“It means so much to me to have the opportunity to tape my next comedy special in the city where I was born and raised with my hometown peeps,” he explains. “There’s no better way to end the year than laughing together.”
