What’s It Like to Live with a Comedian? Oxygen’s New Series Living with Funny Goes Beyond the Jokes to Look at Comedians’ Real Lives and Relationships Tuesdays at 9pm ET/PT only on Oxygen. Ric Speak with the “African King of Comedy” Michael Blackson and his girlfriend Grammy® nominated singer-songwriter Georgia Reign

Living with Funny follows the entertaining lives of five rising comedians and the women who share the spotlight with them. Showcasing what happens when these entertainers drop the mic and head home to their family, friends and significant others, the comedic series follows Michael Blackson and girlfriend Georgia Reign; DeRay Davis and his two girlfriends Coco & Caro; Brandon T. Jackson and girlfriend Denise Xavier; Erik Rivera and wife Katie Rivera; and bachelor Adam Hunter. For these funnymen, the jokes don’t stop just because the show does.

Born in West Africa, Michael Blackson — the self-dubbed “African King of Comedy” — has been called one of the most original comics in the country. Inspired by Eddie Murphy, Blackson first honed his comedy chops in the clubs of Philadelphia back in 1992. Recalling life experiences from his native country of Ghana, Blackson began to amass a loyal following, and was featured in BET’s ComicView, HBO’s Def Comedy JamShowtime at Harlem, Live in Hollywood and more. It was his breakout role in the smash comedy Next Friday starring Ice Cube that earned him critical praise and a massive international fan base.

Off the stage, there is never a dull moment in Michael’s personal life, thanks to his four boys and passionate relationship with Grammy® nominated singer-songwriter Georgia Reign. They moved in together after only a few weeks of dating and have been acting like a married couple ever since. Despite his professional success, Michael always wants more, but his family and girlfriend seem to take the front seat.
