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. Blackson's comedic appeal grew from his involvement with BET's ComicView series, HBO's Def Comedy Jam and Live in Hollywood. After seeing one of Blackson's shows, Ice Cube invited the young comic for a reading…and the rest is smash hit history! Blackson's unforgettable performance in the smash hit comedy, Next Friday, drew praise and a fan following like no other. After that scene stealing performance, fans wanted more, and in 2005, Blackson would not disappoint. He released his top-selling sketch comedy CD, Modasucka, Welcome to America. Blackson then stole the stage on P. Diddy's Bad Boys of Comedy on HBO and on SHAQ's All-Star Comedy Jam. There's no mistaking Blackson for any other comedian when he takes the stage.
