For the month of June, the Power Person of the Month is the hilarious, Mike Epps.
Mike Epps is a comedic star, an actor, and an author. We all grew to know and love Epps from Next Friday, playing Day-Day opposite Ice Cube. Epps would then go on to star in movies such as Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins, All About the Benjamins, Something New, Fighting Temptations, Survivor's Remorse, The Hangover, and the list definitely goes on. Epps is also appearing in 4 movie projects this year! So, the man is very busy!
On top of shooting all the movie and tv shows he'll be in, Epps also is going on a 19-city comedy tour beginning next week.
The month of June was special for Mike Epps. He released another Netflix special entitled, Mike Epps: Only One Mike. In the hour-long special, he discusses topics in the stand-up such as dealing with dyslexia as a child, raising 4 daughters (gift and a curse as he says), and gaining wisdom from old people. The special released on June 25th was Epps' 6th standup special and his second on Netflix, the first released in 2010. You can see the trailer to the standup here.
2 days prior to the Netflix dropping, Mike Epps missed the BET Awards for good reason. HE GOT MARRIED! That's right the extremely funny guy actually did something serious and married Kyra Robinson (Epps). Kyra is a producer on the OWN Network. The two wed in Newport Beach, California at the Resort at Pelican Hill, with a very intimate ceremony that included close family and friends. On The View, Mike said he cried throughout the ceremony out of "joy." Congratulations to Mike and Kyra and we wish them nothing but love and prosperity.
