Mike Epps is the life of the party this Friday, the Next Friday, the Friday After Next, and so on and so forth.
You get it.
But does that make his stand-up worth watching? Well, that’s a different question and answer than wondering, is Mike Epps funny? Yes and no. From my review today of his new Netflix stand-up special, Don’t Take It Personal, published today on Decider.com:
Now 45, Epps has four children from previous relationships, and he’s two decades removed from his first big break as a stand-up on Def Comedy Jam. He doesn’t sound all that comfortable about being a father figure or a stepfather figure, although his personality and life experience makes you realize why he may just be great as an Uncle Buck when ABC reboots the film/sitcom concept in early 2016.
