The preceding pictures are NOT what Rickey Smiley meant when he said, “Open Casket SHARP.”

Rather the term is used endearingly as a compliment to those who exercise high fashion. It’s true. However, the various unthordoxed funeral sights during the deceased last rights — is truly their right. Even though the tailored trend started in Puerto Rico it is fast making it’s way into sanctuaries and grave side services all over the U.S.

That has nothing to do with Steve Harvey wearing a velour hounds tooth suit coat with a sparkling red wine tie  and french cuffs while introducing Rickey Smiley at the start of the show. Not being out done in the “sharp” department, Rickey dawns the stage in an equally bling-appealing 2-piece suit, accessorized with a blush shirt and a cherry stained color tie and double stitched shoes. Quite sharp indeed, but none of that overshadowed the sharpness of Mr. Smileys comedy routine. It’s fresh, relative and clean. I found myself in the routine when he talked about:

Give it up for Rickey’s band!

Okay, I don’t sport a camel toe (often) but when the britches fit like paint-on…
I do sport an upside down McDonald’s sign and find myself singing Rickey’s song.

Lord knows, depth-rich laughter is good for the soul,
and Rickeys subjective humor is something like gold.

I was sharp the night I saw the routine on Netflix and the ethnic fun was like whoa.
I’m Qui
and I laughed at Gradmoma, the Bulldigers and my own camel toe.

Uh-oh! It’s family fun that you can take to heart.
Do yourself a favor & peep Rickey Smileys: OPEN CASKET SHARP.
Good comedy storytelling is indeed an art.
