Comedian, actor, TV producer – Mike Epps is one of those performers that needs his hands in everything entertainment-related.
While he’s landing on the OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino Resort on July 6 at 8:30 pm, he’s also had smaller roles in movies such as Hancock, The Hangover, and Sparkle.
Epps really became known in 1995 when he went on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam and got some national exposure for his stand-up act. In fact, it worked out so well, he was soon hosting the show.
Gigs at the famous Comedy Store in LA caught the attention of actor-singer Ice Cube and soon the two were collaborating on three feature films, Next Friday, Friday after Next, and All About the Benjamins, all of which were cult urban hits.
All the while, Epps has continued to do stand-up, hitting the stage all around the world and become one of the more respected stand-ups in the circuit.
Currently, he stars in and produces the third season of the Netflix comedy The UpShaws, set in his hometown of Indiana, about a working-class family. The show has been nominated for two NAACP Image Awards and a 2021 People’s Choice Award.
Tickets for the show are available HERE.
