    Comedy

    He  has  been  called  one  of  the  most  original  stand-up  comics  in  the  country,  and  his  performances  leave  audiences  laughing  in  tears.  Michael  Blackson,  aka,  'The  African  King  of  Comedy' has  been  entertaining  audiences  all  across  the  country  and  around  the  globe  for  more  than  a  decade.  Inspired  by  the  stand  up  comedy  of  Eddie  Murphy,  Blackson  began  to  develop  his  comedic  talent  in  1992  in  the  unkind  comedy  clubs  of  Philadelphia,  Pennsylvania. 

    Blackson's  comedic  appeal  grew  from  his  involvement  with  BET's ComicView  series,  HBO's  Def  Comedy  Jam,  Showtime  at  Harlem,  and  Live  in  Hollywood.  However,  it  was  in  a  Los  Angeles  comedy  club  where  Blackson  got  his  big  break.  Blackson  was  performing  at  the  Comedy  Store  where  actor/director  Ice  Cube  was  in  attendance  to  see  comedian  Mike  Epps  perform.  But  after  experiencing  Blackson͛s  performance,  Ice  Cube  invited  the  young  comic  for  a  reading...and  the  rest  is  smash  hit  history!  Blackson's  outstanding  and  unforgettable  performance  in  the  smash  hit  comedy,  Next  Friday,  drew  praise  and  a  fan  following  like  no  other. 

    After  his  scene  stealing  performance  in  Next  Friday,  fans  wanted  more,  and  in  2005,  Blackson  would  not  disappoint.  He  released  his  top-selling  sketch  comedy  CD  entitled,  Modasucka,  Welcome  to  America.  With  Blackson,  the  work  never  stops.  Along  with  special  guest  appearances  on  some  of  the  hottest  music  videos,  Blackson  stole  the  stage  on  P.  Diddy's  Bad  Boys  of  Comedy  on  HBO  and  starred  in  a  commercial  for  the  Chappelle  Show  on  Comedy  Central.  There͛s  no  mistaking  Blackson  for  any  other  comedian  when  he  takes  the  stage. 

    And  what  about  those  Dashikis?  When  he  takes  the  stage,  clad  in  the  finest  Dashikis  the  Motherland  has  to  offer,  “The  African  King  of  Comedy?  is  born!  Along  with  his  film  and  television  endeavors,  Blackson  continues  to  entertain  his  fans  as  the  headliner  for  live  shows  at  comedy  clubs,  universities  and  special  events,  bringing  his  one-of-a  kind,  must-see  stand-up  performance  to  audiences  all  across  the  country  and  around  the  world.
