Mike Epps and Friends with Special Guest Sheryl Underwood
Comedian and actor Mike Epps has generated quite a buzz among his peers and within the industry for being one of the funniest comedic actors emerging in the Hollywood spotlight. Mike is currently on his own national comedy tour, “Mike Epps: On the Edge” which is selling out major concert venues across the country; making a stop in Augusta, GA at the James Brown Arena on Sunday, January 16, 2011 at 8:00pm. Tickets are available online at georgialinatix.com, by phone 1-877-4AUGTIX or at the James Brown Arena Box Office.
It was recently announced that HBO will develop “The Unsuccessful Thug”, a half-hour comedy series based on Mike’s experiences growing up in Indianapolis and occasionally running afoul of the law. Says Epps in Daily Variety, “I wasn’t cut out to be mean, but I was in a mean world and participating in mean things to survive.” The sitcom will journey Mike’s life as he took on standup comedy on a dare and began to put his bad behavior behind him.
It is roles such as these that are putting Mike on the road to comedic superstardom Mike is perhaps best known for his roles as “Day-Day” opposite Ice Cube in both Next Friday and Friday After Next.
