Improv Addison presents Rickey Smiley
Best known as host of the 2000 season of BET’s ComicView, Rickey led the show to its highest jump in ratings in the show’s ten-year history. BET then quickly signed Rickey to host The Way We Do It during the 2001-2002 season, and that show went on to become one of the top five shows on the network. It’s his genuine love of performing that has brought Rickey many accolades on stage, on camera and off. He was a guest presenter on the 2001 NAACP Image Awards and hosted the special awards banquet for the 2002 Stellar Gospel Music Awards. In his personal life, he finds time to devote to church, to charities, to the Big Brother Program and to family.
