Omg! Lol this guy literally had the entire audience laughing from nearly the moment he got on stage till the end. He was sooo good he received a little champion belt at the end for bringing sooo much laughter to the show. I seen a ton of comics and Michael Blackson was by far the funniest guy ever!! I can be tough too when it comes to comedy, although I do have a healthy sense of humor but my pt is, that if I laughed the entire time, it def says a lot. I highly recommend that everyone see him at least once. Thanks for reading:-)
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 Blackson’s 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.
