Only One Mike
Mike Epps can’t stop making us laugh. He defy’s modern logic and continues to make hit after hit, his latest Netflix venture proves that. Nothing seems to stop the Mike Epps machine, not comedy beefs, nor sneak-dissers. Mike seems to fight father time rather well, too, his comedy and appearance hasn’t aged a bit.
Mike made his comedic mark in classic films like “Next Friday” and “All About the Benjamins” while creating his legend. He’s credited in nearly 80 movies, including the underrated 2009 flick, “Janky Promoters” (we don’t care what you say, that shit was funny). Funnyman Mike Epps, 48, even surprised us all with a sincere and romantic turn in HBO’s “Bessie.” Now, he’s going back to his roots with a new Netflix special, “Only One Mike.”
Yes, comedian Mike Epps returns with his second stand-up special for the streaming network with, “Only One Mike.“ The one-hour special was recorded at Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C., and covers Epps’s takes on; the gift (and curse) of raising four daughters, overcoming childhood dyslexia, and the mysterious infinite wisdom of old people. Also included, according to the new trailer released today, is Epps’s whimsical tale of taking his kids to an extra-scary haunted-house attraction. We catch a glimpse of vintage Mike Epps as he shares thoughts on D.C. strip clubs.
The trailer gives us a taste of what we’ve come to expect from Mike, high quality production and realer-than-real comedy. Mike is his usual self in this special and never deviates from the brand of humor that fills theater seats and sells movie tickets. He jokes about things we all know and experience but wraps it with mild physical comedy, outrageous facial expressions and urban flair.
Upcoming roles for Mike Epps
We still don’t know whats up with the Richard Pryor biopic, as much as we appreciate Nick Cannon, noone can play Richard Pryor better that Mike Epps. Nonetheless, Mike has other projects on the horizon, appearing in the upcoming Dolemite Is My Name.
The new special will launch globally on Netflix on June 25, 2019. Don’t miss it!
