From his Def Comedy Jam days through his Showtime special to a gig hosting the BET Hip Hop Awards, Mike Epps has always known how to make people laugh. Epps is also widely recognized for his movies roles. Though he’s almost always playing a comic part (see Next Friday, All About the Benjamins, and The Hangover, for example), Epps’ dramatic work in Sparkle was one of the great unheralded performances of last year.
But there isn’t going to be any drama when Epps takes the Palace stage on Sunday night—just laughs.
A critic for the Cincinnati Enquirer described a January appearance by Epps in that Midwestern metropolis: “Epps was unrelenting in his 70-minute standup set, completely filthy and mostly funny as he placed everyone in his crosshairs.”
Mike Epps will perform Sunday (March 3) at 7 PM at the Palace Theatre (19 Clinton Ave., Albany). Tickets are $44.50 and $49.50. For more info, call 465-3334.
