Comedian Rickey Smiley has a net worth of $2.5 million. That net worth has been accumulated thanks to his appearances on movies and in TV shows, but his biggest claim to fame is in what many consider to be a lost art: The prank phone call. Smiley first became a well known figure on the TV stand up comedy show ComicView on Black Entertainment Television. He served as the host of ComicView for its 2000 season. Also during this period he performed stand up comedy on other TV programs, such as Showtime at the Apollo, Def Comedy Jam, and Uptown Comedy Club. Smiley's stand up comedy is characterized by his unusually clean style, and the variety of comedic characters he employs in his act. These include "Bernice Jenkins," "Rusty Dale," and "Beauford." In 2004, Smiley was hired by Dallas, TX radio station KBFB as their morning radio host. His show featured, of course, his famous prank phone calls, in addition to news, weather, and hip-hop related programming. Rickey Smiley has also made appearances in various comedy films, including Friday After Next from starring actor/rapper Ice Cube, and the similarly titled but unrelated First Sunday, in which he plays his character Bernice Jenkins.
Rickey Smiley (born in Birmingham, Alabama) is a standup comedian, television host, actor, and radio personality best known for his prank phone calls. The calls feature Smiley disguising his voice and carrying on a conversation with the recipient of the call.
Smiley graduated from Woodlawn High School in Birmingham, AL and Alabama State University in Montgomery, AL. He is a member of Omega Psi Phi fraternity and is known for informing audiences of his membership in his acts. Smiley is also a pianist, often playing the piano in his shows, and an organist and sometimes refers to himself playing it at his home church.
Smiley has two biological children, but has adopted eight others.[citation needed]
Smiley appeared as the host of the 2000 season of BET's "ComicView" program. He has also appeared on "Showtime at the Apollo", HBO's "Def Comedy Jam", HBO's "Snaps", "The Nashville Network", "Uptown Comedy Club", and "Comic Escape". He is known as one of the few "clean" African American comics, preferring to use humor rather than vulgarity to get laughs. His original comedy routines often feature the role-play of fictional characters such as "Bernice Jenkins" (AKA Granny Swims, Ms. Johnson or Mrs. Francis), "Lil' Daryl", "Rusty Dale" and "Beauford". Bernice Jenkins has a grandson named Rufus, who's a stereotype of the modern day "Gangsta". He is referenced in "Two Of My Toes Fell Off" and another prank phone call where Smiley calls a pharmacy.
Smiley became the morning show personality for KBFB Radio in Dallas, Texas in April 2004. The show features the trademark prank calls, as well as news, information and the latest hip hop music.
He has also released several humorous songs based on his bits, such as "Roll Tide" featuring his redneck character Buford, and "We Miss Robert", based on a routine of his in which a friend of a deceased drug dealer performs a rap song called "We Miss Robert" at the funeral, which is actually a song about a woman, performed in hop
