No one was safe from comedian Mike Epps, who joked about Chicago natives Kanye West, President Barack Obama and even his own family spat played out on TMZ, during his hilarious performance Thursday night at The Venue at the Horseshoe Casino.
The Indianapolis, Ind. native told the crowd he was happy to be back in the Midwest.
“It’s the only place in the country where you can drive down the block and see the next street over because they tore down two houses,” Epps joked.
The comedian joked about being back home and dealing with family members, referring to the TMZ report last year where his then 18-year-old daughter Bria Epps claimed that he threatened to beat her up. He joked that she was a “little b#%$@” but warned the crowd to “love your kids but don’t give them too much.”
Epps also ribbed Chicago celebrities Kanye West (“That baby is going to look like everybody: Reggie Bush, Ray J and Kris Humphries”) and President Barack Obama (“He can’t do nothing for the economy because he only has $2 to flip.”)
He also got in a few words about Charles Ramsey, saying the Cleveland hero is not going to get a McDonald’s endorsement because “he is not family friendly.”
Epps also told the crowd that he would reprise his role in the “Hangover III” movie, which opens on May 24. Fans can expect another Friday sequel with Epps that he along with other returning co-stars Chris Tucker and Kat Williams have signed on for the project.
