In a recent interview with Baller Alert, comedian Mike Epps went on to talk about his private wedding ceremony that went down during BET weekend in Newport Beach, his new Netflix comedy special and his favorite comedians of all time.
Epps went on to say how grateful he was when their famous friends, Snoop Dogg, T.I. and Tiny, Doug E. Fresh, and many more attended the wedding ceremony. “I’m a happy married man now,” Epps said. He then mentioned how humbled he felt to receive so much love from his peers in Hollywood. “It feels good, man. Everybody in Hollywood need camaraderie, everybody need friends in Hollywood. It just feels good to know you got a couple friends, some real ones, to come check you out.”
With Epps being rumored to star in a reported Richard Pryor biopic, he went on to say that he’s “having a great time.” “I love the king Richard Pryor but it’s just one of those films that was hard to make, and I’m having a good time being Mike Epps right now. I’m somebody’s Richard Pryor.”
The comedian went on to mention who he would include in his Mt. Rushmore of comedians and the list was impressive. Big-time names in comedy were listed, with Redd Foxx, Richard Pryor, Paul Mooney, and Robin Harris making the top-four.
