Comedian Rickey Smiley Talks About Succeeding at Fatherhood and Building his Brand

Rickey Smiley is all smiles as he covers the June/July issue of Uptown Magazine.

Smiley has been doing his thing as a comedian and radio personality with “The Rickey Smiley Morning Show,” “The Rickey Smiley Show” on TV One, and “Dish Nation.”

Smiley dished about fatherhood and building his brand to the magazine.

Although starting off was a struggle like it is for most artists, Smiley found much success.

“I’ve just had some great and wonderful opportunities but my opportunities now are just going through the roof. I have a diction coach now. I’ve been practicing. I read the teleprompter every day so I’m prepared,” he said.

Smiley acknowledged comedy is different these days — in order to be successful.

“It’s not about telling jokes anymore. You have to be a great storyteller. You got to bring people into your neighborhood. You got to be animated and years of experience [will] get you into that space and you just crack people up. And don’t take yourself so serious. That’s what brought on my success,” he said.

And Smiley’s success is ever-growing — having many offers while he builds his brand.
