Mike Epps is generating an extraordinary amount of buzz among his peers for being not only one of the funniest comic actors in town, but also for his burgeoning dramatic talent.
Mike can currently be seen in season 2 of the Netflix comedy “The UpShaws,” which he stars in and produces, as well as the HBO Max series “Winning Time.” He is also filming the Sony / Marvel film “Black Madam” and the Apple TV+ Drama “The Lady in the Lake” opposite Natalie Portman.
Recently he has been seen in the Amazon feature “Troup Zero” starring opposite Viola Davis, Allison Janney, and Jim Gaffigan. In 2019, his fifth stand up special “Just One Mike” premiered on Netflix last fall and he starred opposite Eddie Murphy in the comedy “Dolemite is my Name,” which was nominated for Golden Globe, Broadcast Film Critic Awards and a NAACP Image Award. In 2017 he published his first book, Unsuccessful Thug, about his life growing up around violence and how comedy gave him a better life.
Since 2000, Epps has steadily climbed his way up the stand-up comedy ranks. He has performed standup routines in over 40 cities and on 3 continents. He is currently on a national stand up tour that includes two nights at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas. Tickets go on sale October 7 and can be purchased at any box office at The Venetian Resort or by calling 702.414.9000 or 866.641.7469.
