The crown prince of comedy speaks candidly.

Mike Epps

I think I’ve done a great job growing up as an actor.

Comedian Mike Epps is growing up right before our eyes. It’s hard to see this because we are always wiping the tears from our eyes from laughing at all the funny antics and performances this man has channeled from his funny bone. Epps now wants us to see his serious side in the upcoming thriller "Repentance", co-starring Forest Whitaker.

“I think I’ve done a great job growing up as an actor. A lot of people don’t realize that comedians come from a dark world. Comedians are really, really great transitional artists,” the actor tells writer Mike James.

Rolling out sat down with the gifted and talented comedian who reflected on his career and success. Epps looks forward to pushing the boundaries of his acting chops and to fulfilling an educational goal.

“I think the three keys to success is love the people who love you, pray for the people who don’t, and really, really work hard and treat people right,” he says.
