This led to the first of three feature films the duo would do together; the cult hits "Next Friday," "Friday after Next," and the New Line comedy "All About the Benjamins." He has had two Showtime Comedy specials "Mike Epps: Underrated and Never Faded" and "Mike Epps Presents…" He has starred in over 30 feature films and won a NAACP Image Award for his role in the Sony Pictures film, "Jumping the Broom."  Best known for his uproarious stand-up work Epps is also well known for his roles in The Hangover (2009), Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004) and The Hangover Part III (2013). It was recently announced that Mike Epps will play legendary comedian Richard Pryor in an upcoming biopic, to be directed by Lee Daniels.

Michael Blackson has been called one of the most original stand-up comics in the country, and his performances leave audiences laughing in tears. Michael Blackson, aka, ‘The African King of Comedy', has been entertaining audiences all across the country and around the globe for more than a decade. Inspired by the stand up comedy of Eddie Murphy, Blackson began to develop his comedic talent in 1992 in the unkind comedy clubs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Blackson’s comedic appeal grew from his involvement with BET’s ComicView series, HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, Showtime at Harlem, and Live in Hollywood.
