American comedian of Ghanaian descent Michael Blackson plans to set up a comedy club in Ghana that will nurture up and coming comedians into global superstars.
In an interview with Citi TV, Blackson said he has realised that there are a lot of comedy talents in Ghana but they need platforms to hone their talents.
He indicated that, in America, there are a lot of comedy clubs that serve as a platform for grooming up and coming comedians.
“My goal is to come down here – and even if it’s a comedy club or something, to start with, to give the funny guys the platform, I’ll do that. They just don’t have the place to go to practice their craft every week. In America, there are comedy clubs in every city where you go to practice and become better,” he said.
