MILWAUKEE – (June 25, 2014) – Comedian Mike Epps and Live Nation have come together for “The Mike Epps: After Dark” fall 2014 tour coming to the Milwaukee Theatre Saturday, Oct. 25 at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 27 at 10 a.m.
“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,” said Epps. “I have reached the big leagues working with Live Nation.”
In addition to touring, 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.
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.
