Rickey Smiley has been around for a minute. He was host on BET's Comic View years ago. Late 90's early 21st century. I want to say he's from Alabama or somewhere like that, but I'm not sure. You will have to hit Wikipedia for that.

I was right:

Rickey Smiley (born in Birmingham, Alabama) is a standup comedian, television host, actor, and radio personality best known for his prank phone calls. The calls feature Smiley using a disguised voice and talking to whoever picks.

Smiley became the morning show personality for KBFB Radio in Dallas, Texas in April of 2004. The show features the trademark prank calls, as well as news, information and the latest hip hop music.

Smiley is also known as the host of the 2000 season of BET's "ComicView" program. He has also appeared on "Showtime at the Apollo", HBO's "Def Comedy Jam", HBO's "Snaps", "The Nashville Network", "Uptown Comedy Club", and "Comic Escape." He is known as one of the few "clean" black comics, preferring to use humor rather than vulgarity to get laughs. His original comedy routines often feature the role-play of fictional characters such as "Bernice Jenkins", "Lil' Daryl", "Rusty Bale" and "Beaford." He also has released several humorous songs based on his bits, such as "Roll Tide" featuring his redneck character Buford, and "We Miss Robert" based on a routine of his in which a friend of a deceased drug dealer performs a rap song called "We Miss Robert" at the funeral, which is actually a song about a woman, performed in hopes of landing a record deal.

Smiley had a starring role in Ice Cube's Friday After Next.
