Who are all of the characters in “The Rickey Smiley Show?” Rickey Smiley is known for playing a numerous amount of characters himself, and the second season of “The Rickey Smiley Show” premiering on TV One on Friday, July 26th isn’t any different.
Rickey Smiley plays himself, and of course, he is host of a morning radio show and comedian based in Atlanta. He’s a single father of three children who has been divorced, and the show chronicles him trying to find the perfect balance between his career and being a family man.
One of Rickey Smiley’s most popular characters is Sister Bernice Jenkins, a church lady who puts everyone in check, and says whatever she wants in her famous church announcements. Rickey Smiley also plays Clarence the Janitor, a school custodian who uses his orthopedic boot to fight, and also claims to be a “professional soft-shoe dancer.”
Let’s not forget Pastor Watkins, a Southern Baptist pastor at the church Rickey Smiley and his family attend. He also plays the rapper MC T-Bagg and Lil’ Darrl, a fourth grader who has been held back for some time. He usually finds himself an uninvited guest at Rickey Smiley’s house and is very hard to get rid of. Another reoccurring character on “The Rickey Smiley Show” is Joe Willie, the leader of the gospel group The Deuteronomaires.
Rickey Smiley is expected to play a total of nine characters in the sitcom, and among the other cast members are J. Anthony Brown, who plays Maurice, the General Manager of the radio station Rickey Smiley works for. And all his character can think about is money and ratings. Ray J plays Kenny, the show’s producer and all around player. Noree Victoria plays Rickey’s manager who gets her job done, and wants to see her client truly succeed.
Demetria McKinney plays Rickey Smiley’s ex-wife Monica, who he tries to have an amicable relationship with despite their situation, but it doesn’t always turn out that way. His Aunt Sylvia is played by actress Roz Ryan, who lives with Rickey Smiley and helps take care of his children. His son Brandon is played by Jay Lewis, who loves everything tech and is a gaming nerd. Ajiona Alexus plays his teenage daughter De’Ann who, just like every other teenager, is glued to her phone. She loves fashion, but not her dad’s old-fashioned ways. Aaron, Rickey’s youngest, is played by Gabriel Burgess, who got his sense of humor from his father.
