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.

Blackson's comedy has been featured in BET's ComicView series, HBO's Def Comedy Jam, Showtime at Harlem, and Live in Hollywood. After auditioning for Ice Cub, Blackson appeared in Next Friday in 2005 and continued to appear in sketch comedies, music videos, and P. Diddy's Bad Boys of Comedy on HBO.
