With a comedic career that spans across television, film and stand-up, Mike Epps will be hitting the road once again with the Funny as Ish Comedy Tour. Mike Epps will lead the show with an all-star lineup including Gary Owen, Earthquake, and special guest host Sommore, will take the Boch Center Wang Theatre stage on Friday, November 8.
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. In spring 2018 Harper Collins published Epps’s autobiography called “Unsuccessful Thug,” written by Epps about his life and childhood, growing up in poverty and how comedy saved his life. He recently wrapped the Amazon feature “Troup Zero” starring opposite Viola Davis, Allison Janney, and Jim Gaffigan, and a Netflix comedy “Dolemite Is My Name” starring opposite Eddie Murphy. Epps can next be seen in the comedy “The Trap,” directed by Chris Robinson, executively produced by Jesse Collins and co-starring Tip “T.I.” Harris. Epps produced the film under his NapTown productions along with Queen Latifah, Shakim Compere. He also wrapped “The House Next Door” the sequel to the 2016 film “Meet The Blacks” which he stars in and produces.
