Michael Blackson stars in Oxygen's reality docu-series "Living with Funny."

Michael Blackson, aka "The African King of Comedy," has been entertaining audiences 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," HBO's "Def Comedy Jam," "Showtime at Harlem" and "Live in Hollywood." However, it was in a Los Angeles comedy club where he got his big break. He was performing at the Comedy Store where Ice Cube was in attendance to see comedian Mike Epps perform. But after seeing Blackson perform, Ice Cube invited the young comic for a reading ... and later cast him in the feature film comedy, "Next Friday."

In 2005, Blackson released his top-selling sketch comedy CD, "Modasucka, Welcome to America." Along with special guest appearances on some of the hottest music videos, Blackson stole the stage on P. Diddy's "Bad Boys of Comedy" on HBO and starred in a commercial for "The Chappelle Show" on Comedy Central. Blackson has also made guest appearances in "30 Rock" and "Are We There Yet?"

On the big screen, Blackson has been seen in independent films such as "More Money, More Family," "Tooken," "The Bill Collector," "The Savages," alongside Laura Linney and Philip Seymour Hoffman, and "The Last Stand," opposite Laz Alonso and Anthony Anderson.
