Comedian Mike Epps is coming to The Straz Center on Sunday, November 10th!
Mike Epps has generated an extraordinary amount of buzz among his peers and within the entertainment industry for being one of the funniest comic actors to emerge into the Hollywood scene. He currently stars in his own standup special Mike Epps Presents, and is on a national sold-out comedy tour, Mike Epps & Friends. Epps was recently seen starring in the Sony Pictures smash Jumping the Broom. Now focusing on more dramatic features, Epps wrapped the indie thriller Vipaka, starring alongside Forest Whitaker and Anthony Mackie. Additionally, he just finished filming the much anticipated Sony Pictures film, Sparkle, starring alongside Jordin Sparks and Whitney Houston.
Known for his quick wit and ability to blend hip hop audiences with comedy, Epps hosted both the 2009 and 2010 BET Hip Hop Awards to rave reviews. In 2010, Epps also starred in a standup special Mike Epps: Under-rated and Never Faded on Comedy Central and Showtime, and released his first comedy rap album called Funny Bidness: Da Album. The album features Snoop Dogg, Kid Rock, and Slim Thug to name a few. That year also marked the release of his comedy DVD Funny Bidness. Read more under About the Show.
