Ready for Mike Epps?
On June 25th, Mike Epps is ready to drop off a new hour of material for his Netflix comedy special, ‘Only One Mike’. The film follow’s his 2015 comedy special, ‘Don’t Take It Personal’ also with Netflix. We hope to receive a trailer soon, but do we really need one? This brother is funny in real-life, the film will be funny. So yes, the world is absolutely ready for another Mike Epps Comedy special.
Comedy Special shot at Constitution Hall in Washington D.C.
The incomparable “Next Friday” comedian and actor Mike Epps is appropriately inappropriate in his no-holds-barred Netflix stand-up special, “Only One Mike.” The special was filmed at Constitution Hall in Washington, DC, and reminds us why Epps is a one-of-a-kind, realer-than-real comic. In this hour-long special the Indianapolis native reflects on the gift (and curse) of raising four daughters, overcoming childhood dyslexia and the mysterious infinite wisdom of old people. Also included in the new special are hot takes and raw tales about seniority in the bedroom, strip club antics and gang run-ins. Gang run-ins? Wait, what? One can only imagine the hilarity that ensues a gang run-in with someone as naturally funny as Mike Epps.
The Thug that never was
Since we’re on the topic of the streets, make sure you check out Mike’s book, “Unsuccessful Thug.” If you ever wanted to know how Mike got his edge, read the book! “Unsuccessful Thug” explains how Epps was forced to hustle from an early age. Despite his mother’s best efforts and the love of his well-behaved brother, “Chaney,” Epps was drawn into a life of crime. Luckily, he quickly discovered stealing and drug-dealing didn’t fit his persona. Not to mention he wasn’t very good at it, -for example, he once called the cops on himself when a dog wouldn’t let him leave a house he robbed. After several arrests and a few stints in jail, Epps finally realized his venture into thuggery was a failure and tried his hand at stand-up comedy. Thank God.
Netflix and Laugh
That realization led to one of the most successful comedy careers in the history of the world. While most people met Mike during his hilarious introduction as “Day-day” in Friday, the comedy world has watched him evolve from a funny young hustler to a bonafide comedic genius. We can’t wait to watch “One Mike,” and hope you watch as well. Mark your calendars for June 25th, it’s going to be a Netflix and laugh night.
“One Mike” was executive produced by Den of Thieves’ Jesse Ignjatovic, Evan Prager, Jared Morell, and Jordan Barrow along with Mike Epps, Thomas Cobb, Niles Kirchner, Kyra Robinson and Royale Watkins. Directed by Kevin Bray.
