BURBANK, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 31, 2014) - iL2M International Corp. (the "company" or "iLink2Music.com") (OTCQB: ILIM), an emerging music entertainment and social media company announced today that it has signed Michael Blackson as the Company's new morning show personality for its first commercial radio station.
Balckson has been called one of the most original stand-up comics in the country. Blackson, aka, "The African King of Comedy," has entertained audiences across the country and around the globe for more than a decade. Inspired by the standup comedy of Eddie Murphy, Blackson began to develop his comedic talent in 1992 in the comedy clubs of Philadelphia.
Blackson's comedic appeal grew from his involvement with BET's ComicView series, HBO's Def Comedy Jam, Showtime at Harlem and Live in Hollywood. However, it was in a Los Angeles comedy club where Blackson got his big break. He was performing at the Comedy Store where actor/director Ice Cube was in attendance to see comedian Mike Epps perform. But after experiencing Blackson's performance, Ice Cube invited the young comic for a reading and the rest is smash hit history. Blackson's outstanding and unforgettable performance in the hit comedy, Next Friday, drew praise and a major fan following.
After his scene stealing performance in Next Friday, fans wanted more, and in 2005, Blackson released his top-selling sketch comedy CD titled, "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.
Along with his film and television endeavors, Blackson continues to entertain his fans as the headliner for live shows at comedy clubs, universities and special events, bringing his one-of-a kind, must-see stand-up performance to audiences all across the country and around the world.
