Mike Epps Live!

Mike Epps Live!

Comedian and actor Mike Epps slings his sharp observations about life at large in an exclusive New Jersey appearance.

Since his big-screen breakthrough as Day-Day in 2000's Next Friday (and the sequel Friday After Next), stand-up comedian, actor, rapper and producer Mike Epps has generated a huge amount of buzz within the entertainment industry. He's been seen in major releases, including Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins; The Fighting Temptations; All About the Benjamins; Hancock; The Janky Promoters (with Ice Cube), and Next Day Air (with Mos Def). Epps' HBO comedy special, Inappropriate Behavior, was one of the network's top-rated, hour-long specials of 2005. When he isn't filming, Epps travels around the country with his highly successful comedy act, The Mike Epps on the Edge Tour.

A native of Indiana who has steadily climbed his way through the ranks of stand-up comedy, Epps was first recognized as a talent by a national audience in 1995, when he appeared on the Def Comedy Jam tour and performed on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam broadcasts. During a show at Los Angeles’ Comedy Store, he caught the attention of Ice Cube, which led to an audition for the role in Next Friday. Epps also has starred in two classic remakes: Guess Who, with Ashton Kutcher and Bernie Mac, and The Honeymooners, in which he played Ed Norton alongside Cedric the Entertainer as Ralph Kramden.
