While performing at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles, MIKE EPPS (L.J.) caught the attention of musician/actor Ice Cube who cast him in the comedy Next Friday. Epps next appeared in 3 Strikes, Bait with Jamie Foxx for director Antoine Fuqua and the Method Man and Redman hit How High. He teamed up with Ice Cube again to star in All About the Benjamins, which Ice Cube also co-wrote and Epps served as co-executive producer, and returned to the Friday series in Friday After Next. Most recently, Epps appeared in The Fighting Temptations, starring Cuba Gooding Jr., and BeyoncĂ© Knowles. 

Epps, always the class cut-up, got his start as a teenager by performing in local stand-up comedian contests. His success in his home state of Indiana gave him the courage to move to Atlanta, where he made a name for himself at the Comedy Act Theatre. Epps then moved to New York City where he was able to break into some of the comedy clubs and soon found himself a part of HBO's Def Comedy Jam. Not only did he star in two of Def Jam's broadcast programs, Epps also toured with Def Comedy Jam and has appeared on numerous national comedy programs, including Uptown Comedy Club and BET's The Comedy Store.
