Epps, Carpenter & More Star In SPRING COMEDY JAM At Fox 3/21
By popular demand, a second show has been added to see the SPRING COMEDY JAM starring Mike Epps, with Earthquake, Teddy Carpenter and Dominique Witten at the Fox Theatre. This newly added show is set for 12 a.m. Saturday, March 21.
Funny man Mike Epps has steadily climbed his way up the stand-up comedy ranks. Epps' comedic talent was recognized by a national audience in 1995 when he appeared on the Def Comedy Jam tour and appeared on HBO's Def Comedy Jam broadcasts. Epps moved to Los Angeles after his successful performance at the 1999 Laffapalooza festival in Atlanta. During his performance at LA's Comedy Store, Epps caught the attention of Ice Cube. This led to him being cast in the co-starring role of Day-Day in his feature film debut, 2000's hit comedy "Next Friday."
Since 2000, Epps' comedic film roles have exploded; in March 2002, Epps was seen starring opposite Ice Cube in New Line Cinema's "All About the Benjamins." Epps also reprised his role as Day-Day in "Friday After Next," the third installment of the "Friday" series. In 2003, Epps appeared in the Paramount comedy "The Fighting Temptations" alongside Cuba Gooding Jr. and Beyonce Knowles, and in 2004, he was in Sony Pictures' blockbuster sequel, "Resident Evil: Apocalypse" starring Milla Jovovich.
