About
PROFESSIONAL MISBEHAVER RICK LEWIS is a 50 year old man who rides a 12 foot high unicycle, is the World's Funniest Waiter, and is the author of the book, "7 RULES YOU WERE BORN TO BREAK".

If you're looking for an absolutely unique way to bring a group of people together with clean wholesome laughter and fun, and to inspire them to excellence as individuals or as a group, Rick Lewis is exactly what you need.

Here is what the CEO of the Denny's Restaurant chain said about Rick after his presentation to 300 of the company's general managers.

"Rick Lewis provided the most captivating, engaging and eye popping performance I have seen in my 30 years of conference presentations. Even more impressive was his deep insight into human behavior, the culture we align to, its blessings and its curse. Using excerpts from his book, "7 Rules You Were Born to Break" Rick broke down obstacles to taking risks, gave inspiration to "stand out", to be you and be different; and even taught a few men how to stop and ask for directions when in need of help. I have read it through twice now and will borrow heavily from the work in my leadership journey. I am forever changed! Hire Rick and get the book. You will not be disappointed. You are missing out if you don't!"

- John C Miller
President & CEO, Denny's Restaurants

Here's how Rick's presentation works -

Imagine your guests sitting down for lunch or dinner as their server approaches the table to refresh the water glass.

Filling the glass to the absolute brim from a height of two-and-a-half feet, your guest is asked, "Is that enough water for you?" by a completely straight-faced waiter.

Imagine the same waiter returning to the table throughout the meal and becoming more eccentric with each visit.

In this first segment of his presentation Rick plays the role of an utterly inept server who breaks every rule of normal and expected behavior.

By the end of the meal your guests have leaned to the left or right at least a dozen times to whisper to the person sitting next to them, "Did you just see what I saw?"

The result?

Your guests connect with each other and they also begin a journey of awareness into how the unspoken rules of our culture shape our lives.

Suddenly an announcement is made by the hotel management. They have asked the new waiter to come forward and apologize for his behavior.

Nervously arriving on stage, the waiter stammers for words, but he is interrupted by a broadcast of show tunes over the loudspeakers. He is taken over by the mood of the music. As he sheds his uniform, the bright jersey of Rick the entertainer is revealed.

Your audience will finally realize that the waiter is actually their headline act.

Rick uses his training as a performer and comedian to captivate and delight your guests. A master of audience participation, Rick gets your crowd completely involved in his circus stunts and comedy routines.

As he balances objects, juggles and mounts a unicycle that is 12 feet tall, your audience gets the laughs and a powerful message at the same time. Breaking the right rules is essential for organizational excellence.

The audience are participants in Rick's message before it even begins. By the end of his comedy show Rick has the undivided attention of your audience.

Once the stage show has concluded Rick will transition into his speaking presentation. The theme of excellence is approached from a refreshing perspective. Intelligent Misbehavior is the foundation of personal and organizational success.

As a professional misbehaver and author of "7 Rules You Were Born to Break", Rick will share his unique approach that ensures both individual and organizational excellence.

Prior to the event Rick will conference with your group to understand your meeting objectives and tailor his speaking element to focus on the rule your organization could most benefit from breaking.

Rick Lewis provides a keynote-experience that uses world-class entertainment and fun to drive home a practical and powerful message. Breaking the right rules is essential for excellence.

Rick's presentation will inspire your audience to take positive action in their own lives and in your organization.

For groups wishing to maximize return on their presentation investment, Rick's book is a low-cost value add that will guide attendees to sustained change.

I organized an employee recognition event and hired Rick Lewis. He exceeded my expectations. Here is unsolicited feedback: "Presenter was excellent." "In my 30 years with the agency this was definitely one of the best awards program." "The motivational speaker was AMAZINGLY FUNNY!" "Great job getting the performer. Many years we've had less-than mediocre speakers, and this guy was a riot... and got a great message across. I especially like the fact that he really only spoke for a few minutes, but his messages were conveyed through the entire performance. Very smart!" "Everyone I talked to enjoyed the Awards Day this year. The best in my 21 years here in AZ!"

Rick Lewis-The World's Funniest Waiter provided our event with nothing but professionalism from start to finish. He was very accommodating to our needs. As far as the entertainment is concerned, Rick Lewis presented an outrageously funny act that received nothing but positive feedback for the remainder of the day. The most common comment was, "Best event ever!" I believe this is due to Rick's performance. We were very lucky to have found this true artist & entertainer. Not to mention,very proud to have provided our audience a perfect show for the occasion!

Rick Lewis delivered a unique show that dazzled our guests, kept them laughing & then as a speaker inspired them. We literally went on a wildly comical ride when he began his routine as The World's Funniest Waiter. When Rick finally revealed himself as the entertainer, the whole room filled with laughter. He coordinated directly with the resort which alleviated me from having to participate in the planning. His keynote address "empowered" our group to look beyond their disabilities & strive to overcome them. If you're looking for a unique entertainer & inspiring speaker that will leave a lasting message with your participants, Rick Lewis will deliver.

Rick's performance during the appetizer/mingling time, caused the guests to mingle among one another, more than any party we've hosted for our management. His deadpan facial expressions topped it off. The physical comedic routine to conclude the night was absolutely gut-busting fun. The off the cuff audience engagement made memories to last a lifetime for all attendees. Sincerely, Sharman Hickman Chicken Farmer from Arizona!

He was great to work with. For the fee we paid I thought his performance would have lasted longer.

Rick Lewis Motivational, Teamwork & Leadership+’s Response:

My sympathies to my client hosting this hospitality suite. I was hired to entertain his industry associates, yet Dave ran into competition from another hospitality suite and other local distractions offered to the delegates. There were less than 30 people in the room instead of the 100 or more anticipated. I use volunteers for all my routines and play off the audience, so a percentage of the routines were slightly shortened to accommodate the very small crowd. Dave's disappointment is understandable, yet seems misplaced in his expectation that an interactive variety performer would be able to deliver an ideal product with such a minimal crowd.

Rick was the perfect addition to our conference. He was very professional, greatly entertaining, and everyone just loved his act. He really took the audience by surprise and it was a great way to open up the day. It really set the mood for the rest of the conference and we highly recommend him to any group that is considering him. Thank you Rick!

Upon meeting Rick, you can help but notice that he is a professional. He is open to your ideas and suggests his own to compliment your overall experience. He kept to character throughout the "waiter" experience and knew when to slow down and spped up. Upon his introducton to begin the show he held the attention of everyone in the room. Everyone laughed, participated in the experience and looked forward to our next event. Rick Lewis is a true performer and speaker.
