With Special Guest Host and Southern California Native Nick Cannon
Thursday, January 12, San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino welcomes the hip hop comedian, Mike Epps in THE MIKE EPPS; I’M STILL STANDING TOUR with Special Guest Host Nick Cannon. Tickets are on sale today and available at Ticketmaster.com and the San Manuel Box Office for $35 and $45.
A native of Indiana, Epps has steadily climbed his way up the standup comedy ranks. He was recognized by a national audience in 1995, when he appeared on the Def Comedy Jam tour. It was later during a performance at the Los Angeles Comedy Store that Epps gained attention from Ice Cube. This sparked his feature film career, appearing in “Friday” and “All About the Benjamins” alongside Ice Cube.
Known for his quick wit and ability to blend hip hop audiences with comedy, Epps hosted both the 2009 and 2010 BET Hip Hop Awards with rave reviews. In 2010 he released his first comedy rap album called Funny Bidness: Da Album, which featured Snoop Dogg, Kid Rock and Slim Thug. Most recently, he can be seen in the feature film, “Jumping the Broom.”
A multi-faceted entertainer, Nick Cannon is a film star, comedian, musician, writer and executive producer. Cannon headed to Hollywood at age 15, and began landing gigs at world renowned comedy venues including The Improv, The Laugh Factory and the Comedy Store. With this comedy success, he was booked as the opening act for Nickelodeon’s hit show, “All That.” This path culminated with the creation of “The Nick Cannon Show”, earning him his first Kids Choice Award.
He went on to take the leading role in the feature film “Drumline,” and the same year released his self-titled debut album. In 2005, MTV debuted “Nick Cannon Presents Wild N Out”, which became one of MTV’s highest rated shows in the network’s history. More recently, he can be seen on “America’s Got Talent” and the NBC scripted comedy, “Up All Night.”
