ABOUT MIKE EPPS
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’s currently on his national sold out comedy tour, "The Mike Epps I’m Still Standing Tour.”
He was just awarded his first NAACP Image Award for “Best Supporting Actor” for his role in the Sony Pictures film, “Jumping the Broom." More recently, he can be seen in Sony's "Sparkle" starring opposite Whitney Houston and Jordan Sparks. This year he also stars opposite Forest Whitaker and Anthony Mackie in the thriller "Vipaka."
In 2010, Mike also starred in his third stand up special “Mike Epps: Underrated and Never Faded” and “Mike Epps Presents…” both which aired on Showtime. He also 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.”
Since 2000, Epps steadily climbed his way up the stand-up comedy ranks when he was recognized by a national audience in 1995 when he appeared on the Def Comedy Jam tour and appeared on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam. During a performance at LA’s Comedy Store, Epps caught the attention of Ice Cube. This led to the first of three feature films they would do together; the cult hits “Next Friday,” "Friday after Next," and the New Line comedy “All About the Benjamins.” He also starred in the Warner Brothers break out comedy “The Hangover.”
Other features include the Paramount comedy, “The Fighting Temptations”, “Resident Evil: Apocalypse”, “Bait”, “How High” and the voice of Sonny in “Dr.Dolittle 2”, "Roll Bounce", and "Guess Who?"
