The rising star has officially landed as a comical champ, causing joy and inspiration to those he meets directly and indirectly. Though it’s important to note, the ride to get there wasn’t easy-breezy from the get-go.

Blake may not have made a lasting impression in his first audition, but this didn’t stop him from experiencing a soul recognition that this scene is where he was supposed to be, so he pursued it with no regrets.

Following his heart worked out for the best as he achieved his first headline show - ‘I’m not gonna lie’ - in 2018, a life-long goal that played out well into his idea of being self-made.




The man sure does have charisma as he captures the audience’s hearts while being on stage, whether to deliver stand-up comedy, present for UNILAD, Crep Protect, or SBTV, host a range of shows, and of course, produce a sequence of humorous video sketches.

Blake expresses how dedication and hard work will always pay off to transform those dreams into reality and finally say that he has made it. He strives to continue creating content that offers relatability to the masses, simultaneously taking advantage of modern-day trends, and there is no doubt that he will succeed.


Being in the entertainment industry for a while now, Blake highlights the importance of staying true to oneself, that by finding your own voice reaps the benefits, making you the happiest in the end.
