About Majah Hype
*VIP includes preferred seating.*Passions for building communities and creating strong representations of Caribbean descendants inmainstream culture are what give comedian Majah Hype his secret sauce. Beginning in 2012, theraspy-voiced funnyman known to his adoring fans as “the Caribbean King of Comedy” took socialmedia by storm with his brand of humor he calls “reality comedy:” producing and starring in sketchesonline featuring impersonations of characters that poke fun at various stereotypes associated withCaribbean, Latin and African-American cultures. As a stand-up comedian, Majah improvises hisroutines: delivering unscripted punchlines around everyday experiences that connect Afro-Caribbeanpeople.Majah was always destined to entertain crowds and bring joy to diverse audiences. Born Nigel Joseph inthe Caribbean, Majah grew up the oldest of three children with his mother in Brooklyn, N.Y. Thediligent entertainer synonymous with mimicking Caribbean accents honed his chops winning hisfamily’s holiday talent shows either telling jokes or playing seven instruments: mainly the altosaxophone, clarinet and trombone. Any other time, Majah was taking his inspiration for making peoplelaugh by studying Redd Foxx on “Sanford & Son,” Jamaican comic Oliver Samuels, Richard Pryor,Martin Lawrence, Jerry Seinfeld and Eddie Murphy.For awhile, music seemed to be the career path Majah was destined to pursue. In junior high school,Majah started DJing. One of his DJ buddies gave him the name “Majah” because he could see that thecomedian was destined for worldwide success. Majah began selling cassette tapes sequenced withCaribbean sounds and Hip-Hop to his peers in the hallways. Adding vocals and production to hisgrowing list of talents, Majah produced singles for a host of Jamaican and Caribbean artists likeGyptian and Torres Riley. Almost instantly, the reality of becoming a father at 19 years old forcedMajah to put his dreams to mesmerize audiences on hold.Majah took a job as an electrician with Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA). Although he was makinggreat money going in and out of tunnels for eight years, Majah knew his purpose was much greaterthan a 9-to-5 routine. He’d gotten laid off and started posting his own memes and later 15-secondvideos to Instagram. One particular post comparing the best trucks in Caribbean culture during LaborDay Weekend became a viral sensation. Majah’s following started growing exponentially: promptingthe comic to pursue his passion for making people laugh full-time. He quit his day job and never lookedback.Frequently coming up with new characters, Majah produces about six or seven videos per day. Heblazed both domestic and international stages with his prideful brand of wit: becoming a familiar facespanning Trinidad, Tobago, Jamaica, Guyana, Barbados, Japan, Europe, Canada, South America and theBahamas. Majah primarily headlines his own performances but has been honored to share stages withcomedic talents such as Jason Anders, Michael Blackson, John Witherspoon, Paul Mooney, Cedric theEntertainer, Tony Woods, Brandon T. Jackson, Marlon Wayans and Affion Crockett.As his following continues to expand, Majah’s objective is to remain an ambassador for his Caribbeanheritage. Majah performs an annual stand-up show at the King’s Theater every Labor Day in hishometown, Brooklyn. He launched his own production company, Hype Media and Films, in 2014. Twoyears later, the ambitious jokester wrote, starred in and directed an independent comedy, “ForeignMinds Think Alike,” where he also portrayed five characters on-screen. This year, Majah plans tolaunch his own nonprofit organization, Hearts of Comedy for Majah Hype.Majah has made appearances on “The Wendy Williams Show,” “The Breakfast Club,” TIDAL’s “Money& Violence,” and BET.When he’s not cracking jokes, dressing up in wigs and costumes, or poking fun using his Caribbeanaccents, Majah visits children’s hospitals and supports causes like cancer, leukemia and sickle cellanemia. Majah also frequently reads comments on his posts so that he can constantly gauge andinteract with his followers, so watch out because one of Majah’s alter egos, Mitzy, might go ham andstart trolling you on Instagram!
