Annotation: “I’m very passionate about everything that I do and I don’t play any games.
I just keep it honest. I don’t put on airs. That’s the only way you can be.
If you tell one lie, you’ve got to tell another lie. I’m cool with who I am. What you see is what you get.”
Stand-up comic. Single dad. Radio personality. TV star. Prankster. Producer. Community activist. Man of faith.
Visit a church, comedy club, college campus, or barber shop, and you’ll find few people who aren’t familiar with, or fans of, Rickey Smiley.
At least four million listeners in over eighty markets tune in every weekday morning to hear him banter with his radio show crew, hilariously prank call an unsuspecting listener, and perform skits etched by his one-man cast of characters including “Lil’ Darryl,” “Beauford,” and “Joe Willie.”
But in between the rapid-fire jokes, hip-hop beats, and celebrity dish are flashes of how Rickey views the world, from the challenges of raising children, to the importance of education, to the need to always stand in your own truth.
After more than two decades in the spotlight, Rickey is finally ready to delve more deeply into the opinions he voices ever so briefly on the air, riffing on those issues that his listeners, viewers, and fans find most important.
Stand by Your Truth is part memoir, part testimonial, and part life guide, mixing Rickey’s down-home humor with the values he learned from being raised by three generations of elders, steeped in the Baptist church, and mentored by some of the most celebrated comics in the entertainment industry today.
