Michael Blackson – African King of Comedy


By Ameyaw Debrah

On December 22, Accra will roar with laughter as the African King of Comedy, Michael Blankson storms the Ghana National Theatre for the 6th edition of the Night of 1000 and Something Laughs.  Michael has been referred to as one of the most original stand-up comics in the world. His performances are often climaxed by tears of laughter shed by those who listen to him. He has entertained audiences across the world for over a decade. His comic appeal grew from strength to strength through his involvement with BET’s Comic View series, HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, Showtime at Harlem, and Live in Hollywood.  
Michael will be joined on stage by Nigeria’s finest and most hilarious Klint the Drunk, Julius D’Agwu and Jeddi. The sixth instalment of the comedy show dubbed “A Night of 1005 Laughs” will give Ghanaians 1005 reasons to laugh off their stress while enjoying good music.  Klint the Drunk and Julius D’Agwu are no new names to Ghanaian comic fans but the rest will be having their debuts in Ghana, but they have promised Charter House, the organizers of the event, nothing but a night of rip-cracking jokes.
Other performances will come from the controversial and politically incorrect A Plus, the sensational Irene and Jane, MOBO Award winner “Batman” Samini, Gyedu Blay Ambuley and many others.

    I have seen this guy in Ice Cube’s movie Next Friday, Comic View, and a little skit with Master P – Katt Williams..

    He is really funny. Original jokes. He just comes up with crazy stuff but very insightful.. You will need to think about some of the things he is saying.

    He is too funny.. He will rock my hometown.. They will love him..
