He once was an L.A. gangbanger, but now he's making noise in the comedy game. He's appeared Comicview with George Lopez and Premium Blend with D.L. Hughley, and he had the audience goin' with his pliable faces, energetic voice impressions and funny-ass twists on South Central street life. He's got jokes and he's got sketches: "This guy, claimed he was being racially profiled [at the airport]. 'I'm being racially profiled,'" says Blake in an accent that starts out Jamaican, but he gets around to a Arabic accent. "What do you expect? You look like Bin Laden. Take off the turban, shave the beard, you'll look like a Mexican—you could get a job at the airport." Eric Blake...you'll see him again. (See Comedy story.) [WR]
