Parody Page

Richie has written and produced literally thousands of “ditties” about every conceivable subject under the sun. To list them all here would be a physical impossibility, as many of them are as current as today’s news.

Jay Leno said it best about topical humor.  To paraphrase, he said “Writing topical humor is like flicking a Bic lighter.  It’s very useful for a short time -it’s a flash of light that quickly burns out until you scramble to come up with the next one”

  There are many, many, MANY lighters in Richie’s drawer from his 27+ years on WGNA radio and previous years of club and convention performing.   Click on the buttons below to hear sample clips. P.S    TESTIMONIALS ARE INCLUDED AT BOTTOM OF PAGE.

have contacted Richie on numerous occasions to provide entertainment at our company events.  He's the best!  Two years ago, we had our first annual employee apprec I iation night.  We had never done this sort of program so we relied on Richie as our master of ceremonies.  With his help, our evening was a great success.  Richie worked with us on the event this year, too, including meeting with us in the planning stages with games, etc., and getting our audience involved.... I knew he would be the musical host I would call on from then on and pray that he wasn't already booked!

We hired Richie to “entertain the troops” at our 2005 holiday meeting.  He was very funny and our members had a great time listening to his crazy songs.  He definitely added lots of laughter and enjoyment to this event!

Richie wrote and performed a customized song saluting our retiring CEO.  His witty parody was synchronized to a video produced by a local advertising agency.  It was definitely the highlight of the function, which was attended by more than 300 people.  Richie is truly a comedic genius and a masterful entertainer.

Everyone was raving today about what a good time they had last night – it was light, breezy, funny and just what they needed after a long day!

I think we may be on to something.

Again, many thanks – we all truly enjoyed!!!!!

Take care, Kathy

  We really did love the customized song and our principal was very surprised!

 He laughed himself to tears. I produced a slideshow and a scrapbook for him including a page from every teacher and staff member in the building. He was overwhelmed. The customized song blew him away. You did a great job. Thanks again.

Richie is the best DJ HANDS DOWN!!  He is funny, outgoing and loves to get people out on the dance floor.  He has a great selection of music and knows what the crowd wants to hear, no matter what the function is.  I give him four stars! ****    Mackenzie Grosh
