Michael Blackson, known as the "African King of Comedy," headlines Tommy T's Comedy Club in Rancho Cordova. Blackson, who was born in the African nation of Ghana, began his standup career in Philadelphia. Now he cracks up audiences nationwide with his unique perspectives and jokes about the immigrant experience. A frequent guest on BET's stand-up showcase ComicView, Blackson has also been seen on HBO's Def Comedy Jam, Showtime's Shaq's All Star Comedy Jam and more. He was hand-picked by Ice Cube himself to audition for the cult hit comedy Next Friday, where Blackson made a huge impact, going on to Are We There Yet? and TV's 30 Rock.
