KEYNOTE
MIKE EPPS

Mike Epps has generated an extraordinary amount of buzz among his peers within the entertainment industry for being one of the funniest comic actors to emerge in the Hollywood scene. When Epps isn’t filming, he is touring the country and performing his comedy show to packed arenas.

Born in Indianapolis, IN, into a large family, Epps’ natural comedic ability was encouraged at an early age, and he began performing standup as a teenager. He moved to Atlanta where he worked at the Comedy Act Theater, before moving to New York City to star in Def Comedy Jam in 1995. His first major film role came just two years later when he starred in Vin Diesel‘s Strays, a dramatic portrayal of relationships and drugs. In 1999, he made an appearance on the HBO series The Sopranos.

In addition to his aforementioned film work Epps  and his wife Kyra have bought several homes on his childhood block in Indianapolis, and their goal is to revitalize the struggling neighborhood and bring back the charm, community and character that Mike valued growing up.

“This is about holding onto legacy, this is about holding on to what we come from,”

-Mike Epps
