RC Smith Summer Comedy Series at Arts Center Theatre
July 21, 2023
RC Smith is known in the television and comedy industry as one of the best "tv warm-up" guys in the business. A warm-up comic's job is to get people who are there to see a television program show live, in a great, upbeat mood, before they see the true star of the show.
A great warm-up comic can jump-start an audience from nothing to something and has to do it right from the get-go. He has to have great energy as soon as he hits the stage and he has to be a 100% hitter. RC SMITH IS THAT GUY!
RC is currently the warm-up comic for ABC's "The Chew", was a long-standing warm-up for "The Rachel Ray Show" and has also done warm-up for TV'S "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert", "Good Morning America", "The Colbert Report", "The Tony Danza Show", "Who Wants to be a Millionaire", "The Caroline Rhea Show" and "Ricki Lake". RC headlines all around the country and Canada and is a regular on a handful of 50,000 watt radio stations around the country which is a true testament to his adaptability, likeability, and creativity. He regularly plays Atlantic City and Las Vegas along with the Mohegan Sun Casino. RC's influences are Don Rickles, Lenny Bruce, and Gene Simmons. People that have seen him always remember him.
