Mike Epps bringing comedy tour to Fantasy Springs

20 November 2015

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Since 1995 when he was first discovered on the Def Comedy Jam tour and HBO's "Def Comedy Jam," Mike Epps has been steadily climbing the standup comedy ranks.

Epps has had two Showtime Comedy specials, with another set for release on Netflix later this year, and has starred in over 30 films and television projects.

On Friday, Jan. 22, 2016, Mike Epps makes his debut at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino, bringing his "Mike Epps: The Real Deal Tour" to the Special Events Center for an 8 p.m. show.

Gearing up for the role of a lifetime, Epps has also been hand-picked to star in the bio-pic for comedy legend Richard Pryor, directed by Lee Daniels. Epps has also been cast in the title role in the ABC sitcom "Uncle Buck" opposite Nia Long. The show is a remake of the John Hughes classic.

Epps was also recently seen starring in the Starz series "Survivors Remorse," produced LeBron James and Mike O'Malley. Additionally, Epps stars in his own AOL original series "That's Racist." In this 10-episode comedy series, Mike explores the backstories of this humor and how history and fact often distort into a snide – but sometimes funny – shorthand. He interviews those on the receiving end of the jokes and conducts witty roundtable conversations on the topic.

Tickets for the 8 p.m. performance of "Mike Epps: The Real Deal Tour" go on sale Friday, Nov. 20 for $79, $59 and $39 at the Fantasy Springs Box Office, via telephone (800) 827-2946, or online.
