Michael Blackson and Friends

• His Start: On the Philly comic scene, working his way onto BET’s ComicView, HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, and Showtime and Harlem. When Ice Cube caught a live performance by chance, he cast Michael in the Next Friday, which helped expose the comic to an even wider audience.

• Where Else You’ve Seen Him: Appearances on Martin Lawrence’s First Amendment Standup, 30 Rock, and Chappelle’s Show helped earn him the nickname “The African King of Comedy.”

• His Style: lobbing punchlines while talking about moving to a new country or society’s “modasuckas”
