Comedy Show Featuring Martez Jackson.
Martez Jackson has been putting smiles on the faces of people internationally since the early 2000’s. This east side Detroit native was most recently seen on the Fox Network’s, Laughs TV and will be seen at a comedy club near you. I asked him a few questions…I would describe it as universal comedy for all generations. I bridge gaps. I talk directly to my age group, 30 to 50-year-old’s. I’m funny enough to appeal to teenagers and young adults and I’m appreciated by elders for my respect for their contributions to our current society. This is reflected in my material.
Some of my story is the traditional class clown story, but initially I just loved attention. I didn’t lack attention at home at all but I loved to make people laugh. I wanted to be an actor thanks to my wonderful high school drama teacher, Mrs. Phyllis Hoban at Martin Luther King High School in Detroit. When I graduated high school, I tried to be a theater major but I had to go to community college. After five semesters, I transferred to Wayne State and they said I would be a second semester freshman. Over the next two years, I auditioned for local plays and even auditioned for the world famous Second City in Detroit. Within this time, a new comedy club opened in Detroit called The House of Comedy. The first time I did an open mic, the entire crowd jingled their keys because they weren’t allowed to “Boo.” In spite of me tanking for my first few months, I would go back every week. It felt great even when I bombed. I only grew from there once I was introduced to other clubs around my area like, Bea’s Comedy Kitchen, Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle, Joey’s, and the Ann Arbor Showcase. One of the beautiful things about Detroit is that at one point, we had 7 or 8 active weekend stand-up comedy clubs in the southeast Michigan area.
