Michael Blackson was born in Ghana, West Africa. Immigrated to the United States in April 1985. You may have seen Michael Blackson on BET's Comic View, Def Comedy Jam, Uptown Comedy Hour, HBO Snaps, Clubs, Colleges worldwide. Appearing and starring in movies is something this veteran comic really enjoys. Michael Blackson has appeared in the movie Lean on Me and now you can catch him in his most recent movie with Ice Cube entitled "Next Friday." Michael Blackson is one of the most original foreign comics in the United States. We believe comedian Michael Blackson has a bright future in movies.

Originally from Detroit, comedian, actor, writer, Tony Roberts, is blessed with the coveted honor of being the, "Comedians-comedian". The guy other performers love to watch work. His hilarious and refreshing comedy style has granted him this respect and created a huge demand for him on the comedy circuit, here in the states and abroad. Legendary comedian and sitcom director, David Steinberg, exclaims Tony Roberts as, "A breakout talent" after witnessing Tony Roberts' stand-up and casting him as lead, in a successful series of funny Burger King commercials he directed.

Tony Roberts' television debut was on HBO's, "DEF COMEDY JAM", followed by, "IT'S SHOWTIME AT THE APOLLO" and "BET's COMIC VIEW". In 1994, Tony Roberts received the, BET ROBIN HARRIS AWARD, for Most Original Comic. A favorite on the program, to date Tony Roberts has appeared on COMIC VIEW, four times.

Alex Thomas was born in Los Angeles, California. He grew up with a musical background. His mother, a classical pianist, and his father, Alexander Sr., was a member of one of the greatest bands in R&B history, Earth, Wind, and Fire. Because of Thomas' height and size, sports did not work out in his favor. While growing up in the hood, the only other alternative was telling jokes. He was the class clown from kindergarten until he graduated from high school.

Two years later, Will Smith found Thomas performing at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood, California. Smith hired Thomas immediately as a writer on his hit sitcom, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, where he wrote for the show for three seasons. As a stand up comedian, Thomas has starred in two one hour comedy specials, Straight Clownin' on Showtime and BET's Comicview. Thomas has opened up for such stars as Sinbad, Jamie Foxx, Mark Curry, Damon Wayans, and Bill Cosby.
