Check out Mike’s recent appearance on Drink Champs:

Epps says that him and a guy named Antwan robbed a woman at a Noble Roman’s pizza restaurant in Indianapolis and after they robbed her Antwan pistol whipped her.  Mike was surprised and asked Antwan why he smacked the lady while they were still in front of her.  Mike wasn’t built to be a criminal and I’m glad he chose comedy.

On another robbery, Epps explains that he kept saying his friend’s name, making it easy for their victim to report his friend’s identity to the cops.  Epps also reveals that he was once a robbery victim. The robbers put Mike in the trunk and they were playing music.  He says when the song stopped, he beat on the seat from the truck and asked the robbers to play the track again.  That’s when he knew he was meant to be a comedian.
