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.
Epps can be seen in season 2 of the Netflix comedy “The UpShaws,” which he stars in and produces. In 2022, his sixth stand-up special, “Indiana Mike,” premiered on Netflix and was shot in his hometown of Indianapolis. He can currently be seen in the HBO Max series “Winning Time” and the Netflix comedy special “Snoop Dogg’s F*cn Around.” He is currently shooting the Sony / Marvel film “Black Madam” and the Apple TV+ drama “The Lady in the Lake,” opposite Natalie Portman.
In the last couple years he has been seen in the Amazon feature “Troup Zero” starring opposite Viola Davis, Allison Janney and Jim Gaffigan, and in the A24 film “The Last Black Man in San Francisco,” which both premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. In 2019, his fifth stand-up special “Just One Mike” premiered on Netflix, and he starred opposite Eddie Murphy in the comedy “Dolemite is My Name.” In 2017, Harper Collins published his first book, “Unsuccessful Thug,” about his life growing up around violence and how comedy gave him a better life.
Epps was seen in the HBO-Emmy Winning biopic “Bessie” based on Bessie Smith, played by Queen Latifah. He was seen in three seasons of the Starz series “Survivor’s Remorse,” produced LeBron James and Mike O’Malley, for which he won a 2016 NAACP Image award for “Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series” for his portrayal as Uncle Julius. In 2011, he was awarded an NAACP Image Award for “Best Supporting Actor” for his role in the Sony Pictures film, “Jumping the Broom.”
Epps has been seen in over 40 cities and three continents live doing standup. He is currently on a national stand-up tour and since 2000, Epps steadily climbed his way up the stand-up comedy ranks when he was recognized by a national audience in 1995 for appearing on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam (which, years later, he would go on to host). 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 “All About the Benjamins.”
