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.
