Mike Epps After Dark

Mike Epps is taking “new fresh jokes” out for a spin this spring. The stand-up comedian/actor/film producer/writer/rapper has announced the first leg of a 42-city trek that will include U.S. and international dates.

“I look forward to hitting the road and taking it to the next level. I have new fresh jokes that are grown, adult and sexy,” Epps said. “I have reached the big leagues working with Live Nation.”
