Rickey Smiley
Tuesday, Jun 18, 2019

DISH NATION’s Rickey Smiley is the star of the nationally syndicated radio program The Rickey Smiley Morning Show, which broadcasts each weekday from WHTA-FM (107.9). He is known for having made millions laugh for over 25 years. As a celebrated comedian, television host and top-rated nationally-syndicated radio personality, Rickey has earned a reputation for delivering to audiences both on and off stage. With the distinct ability to take everyday observations and turn them into comedic gold, Rickey is one of the few “clean” comics amongst the upper echelon of contemporary comedians. At any given performance, audiences are treated to such original characters as “Mrs. Bernice Jenkins,” “Lil’ Daryl,” “Joe Willie” and “Beauford.” In addition, his comedy shows often include a live band, which he often accompanies (he is an accomplished pianist and organist).

Rickey has recorded eight best-selling albums, including iTunes #1 best-selling comedy album, “Rickey Smiley: Prank Calls Number 6.” Smiley has hosted BET’s “Open Casket Sharp” and “Comic View,” and has appeared on “Showtime At The Apollo,” “Uptown Comedy Club,” HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam” and “Snaps.” In addition to being featured on DISH NATION, his nationally syndicated morning radio show can be heard in over 50 markets.

Rickey was born in Birmingham, Ala. He graduated from Woodlawn High School and went on to attend college at Alabama State University in Montgomery, Ala. He is a member of Omega Psi Phi fraternity and Kappa Kappa Psi National Band fraternity. He is the proud father of six children.

His birth date is August 10.
