Mike Epps has been generating an extraordinary amount of buzz among his peers for being not only one of the funniest comic actors in town, but also for his burgeoning dramatic talent. Mike is currently starring in the Starz series “Survivor’s Remorse” produced LeBron James and Mike O’Malley. He recently completed an arch on the BET show “Being Mary Jane” and the Universal feature “Term Life” starring opposite Vince Vaughan and Hallie Steinfield. This summer he began production for the HBO bio-pic “Bessie” based on Bessie Smith, played by Queen Latifah.

In 2009, Mike headlined his hugely successful stand-up special, “Mike Epps: Underrated and Never Faded,” and in 2011 introduced the world to new comedic talent with, “Mike Epps Presents…,” both which aired on Showtime. He also released his first comedy rap album called “Funny Bidness: Da Album.” The album featured Snoop Dogg, Kid Rock, and Slim Thug to name a few. Sommore reigns as the undisputed “Queen of Comedy.”

This trendsetting, highly-acclaimed veteran entertainer is widely considered one of America’s top comedic female entertainers. With a winning combination of class and sass, Sommore offers audiences a hilarious, yet piercing look at today’s issues from a woman’s perspective. She is frank and fearless in her routines, tackling topics that range from the mundane to the controversial with wit, intelligence and style.

Praised by critics, respected by her peers, and adored by a diverse fan base, she performs her stand-up act to sold-out audiences across the country, and she is among the top-grossing stand-up comediennes in the United States and abroad.. She can also be seen as the new host of BET’s ComicView. Oprah Winfrey proclaimed her “a force to be reckoned with in the new millennium.”
