Keith was born on October 9, 1957 in Reidsville, North Carolina.
Keith started his rodeo career in 1972 at the age of fifteen competing in the junior rodeo division in the bareback riding and bull riding. He also tried his hand at bullfighting. It got to the point where he enjoyed the bullfighting (protecting the cowboys) more than the competition. That's more or less how his career as a contract performer began.
Keith had no desire to tell jokes or perform clown acts. Being somewhat shy, he found the large audiences intimidating. However, after a period of time, he found that the baggy pants and makeup that he wore provided him a comfort shield between himself and the spectators. Slowly, but surely, he began telling jokes and performing clown acts.
Some of his comedy routines consist of Trick Roping, High Impact-Low Impact aerobic workout, various animal routines and Trick Riding. Acts such as these have made it possible for Keith to make rodeo entertainment a full-time career.
His travels have taken him throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada.
