Clean, Family Comedy.

If you are one of the nearly 1 million adults and kids who over the past several years has seen Ricky perform live at the Alabama Theatre in North Myrtle Beach, SC, you understand why he is building a large, enthusiastic following. His dry, gut pummeling humor is a workout for young and old.


Ricky, the “lovable, gifted idiot” is the most natural, spontaneous and thoroughly refreshing comedy character to come along in many years. And when he boasts, “I think about stuff,” he is telling the truth.

Who is

Ricky Mokel?

Ricky Mokel is the on-stage alter ego of Grant Turner. Since January of 2000, Ricky Mokel has been the star comedian in a family friendly, but otherwise Las Vegas style, musical variety show at the Alabama Theatre. It has been in this environment that Ricky Mokel–a lowly stage hand who, at the last minute, is pressed into entertainment duty–has been most appreciated.
