Earlier this year, Mike Epps was wondering the same thing we were: Why wasn’t he included in Chris Rock’s Top Five?

Epps began his career in Def Comedy Jam, later becoming well-known for his characters in Next Friday and Friday After Next. Before he gets too big for the stage, Epps returns to his stand-up roots for a dose of comedy about relationships, sex and the ongoing peculiarities of white folks.
