Los Angeles, June 24, 2014 – Comedian Mike Epps and Live Nation have come together for Mike’s 2014 fall tour deemed “The Mike Epps: After Dark Tour” which will cover over 20 cities nationally. Tickets for his Milwaukee Theatre appearance on Saturday, October 25, go on sale starting Friday, June 27 at 10:00 a.m., at the Milwaukee Theatre Box Office and all Ticketmaster retail locations, by phone at 1-800-745-300 or online at Ticketmaster.com.
“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. I have reached the big leagues working with Live Nation.” said Epps.
Mike is currently shooting the Starz series “Survivor’s Remorse” produced by LeBron James and Mike O’Malley. The show follows Cam Calloway (Jessie T. Usher), a basketball star in his early 20s, who is thrust into the limelight after signing a multimillion-dollar contract with a pro team. Epps plays Cam’s ‘Uncle Julius,’ who moves from the Dorchester projects to an Atlanta mansion with his family after Cam gets a big pro contract. Although Uncle Julius loves the perks of success, he still tries to keep the family on point with his guidance and wisdom.
Epps recently completed an arch on the BET show Being Mary Jane and the Universal feature, Term Life, starring opposite Vince Vaughan and Hallie Steinfield. The film tracks Nick Barrow (Vaughn), who takes his estranged daughter (Steinfeld) on the lam when a heist goes south and he takes out a life insurance policy on himself that doesn’t take effect for 21 days. Mike plays a dirty cop who is trying to frame Vaughan’s character.
This summer he will shoot the HBO bio-pic Bessie, based on Bessie Smith, played by Queen Latifah. The film chronicles how Smith overcame her tempestuous personal life to become one of the most acclaimed performing and recording artists of the 1920s and ’30s, earning the nickname Empress of the Blues. Mike plays Richard Morgan, a bootlegger and romantic interest to Bessie Smith. He is also currently developing the script, Any Means Necessary, for Sony pictures with Neal Moritz attached to produce. He will star opposite Marlon Wayans about two brothers – one a cop, and one a criminal.
