    Mike Epps is 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. Epps steadily climbed his way up the stand-up comedy ranks when he was recognized by a national audience in 1995 for appearing on HBO's Def Comedy Jam (which, years later, he would go on to host). During a performance at LA's Comedy Store, Epps caught the attention of Ice Cube. This led to the first of three feature films they would do together: the cult hits "Next Friday," "Friday after Next," and "All About the Benjamins." On March 28, Harper Collins released his autobiography called Unsuccessful Thug, written by Mike about his life and childhood.
