Na’im Lynn: The surest thing to come out of Jersey happened way before MTV was even a reality. But you can blame it on the moon men or some other inter-galactic event but there’s no denying that the universe was blessed with the descent of Na’im 4000 Lynn landing in a small town named Hillside, two miles east of Newark Liberty Airport (even then he was so fly he was two miles ahead of the plane!). Growing up using Martin Lawrence and Eddie Murphy for Muses it wasn’t long before Na’im developed a knack for out-of-this-world comedy that has him skyrocketing to the top as the next big thing. Best known as the opening act for his friend, famed comedian Kevin Hart, Na’im travels the world over blazing the stage as part of Hart’s continuous tour that has produced two genius comedic movies – Seriously Funny and Laugh at my Pain which Na’im also stars in. “He helped me early” Na’im said of Hart. He taught me how to be more personal with my jokes. He was like “Yeah I don’t care if you bomb just go up there and try some new s#it!” The then aspiring physical therapist ditched that career and a job at US Airways to pursue his passion. A week after calling it quits with the friendly skies, he won a showcase with NBC thus starting a ripple effect that has had him riding a wave of success ever since with spots on Comedy Central, HBO, BET, TvOne, UPN, VH1 and Jamie Foxx’s Foxxhole Comedy Series just to name a few. Inspired by comedic legends and presently working with some of comedy’s greats Na’im has no choice but to take his position on the brink of major stardom to achieve his full potential as a comedic dynamo.
