RC Smith at the Comedy Shoppe Mt. Arlington, NJ

RC Smith:

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", “The Colbert Report”, "The Tony Danza Show”, “Who Wants to be a Millionaire”, “The Caroline Rhea Show” and “Ricki Lake”. Not only does RC jump-start a live studio television audience, he also does the same thing in a comedy club, theatre, private party, or corporate event. BOOM! Right from the get-go!RC processes an ornate ability to work with an audience. His style is rapid-fire, relentless, and non-stop. And, he gets away with it because he’s so gosh darn likeable. His improvisational stylings look like the material is made up on the spot and even though a lot of it is his material is often true and tested. He’s just so good at it…… looks truly improvisational. 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. His loyal friend Joey Kola is credited to helping RC get into the warm-up business as the warm-up for ”The Rosie O’Donnell Show” and” Martha Stewart Show”. Thanks for the day job Joey!RC is Brooklyn, New York based and during his down-time from the “Rachael Ray Show” is available to perform anywhere around the country. The show does not tape during the summer months and his agent and manager always have his taping schedule well in advance. We recommend in promoting RC for your live date mentioning his “longstanding warm-up act for the Rachael Ray Show”. People that have seen him always remember him.
