WiLD 94.1's Shut Up & Laugh
For the third straight year, WiLD 94.1 and The Mahaffey Theater have teamed up to present Shut Up and Laugh, the comedy event of the summer. Mike Epps, Jo Koy and Michael Che will take the stage for one hilarious night.
Mike Epps has generated an extraordinary amount of buzz among his peers and within the entertainment industry for being one of the funniest comic actors to emerge into the Hollywood scene. With a career that expands from stand-up comedy to TV and film, Epps current success is hard earned and well deserved. Movie credits include Jumping the Broom, Sparkle, Next Friday, All About the Benjamins, Friday After Next, Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins and more.
Known for his quick wit and ability to blend hip hop audiences with comedy, Epps hosted both the 2009 and 2010 BET Hip Hop Awards to rave reviews. In 2010, he also starred in a standup special Mike Epps: Under-rated and Never Faded on Comedy Central and Showtime, and released his first comedy rap album called Funny Bidness: Da Album. The album features Snoop Dogg, Kid Rock, and Slim Thug to name a few. That year also marked the release of his comedy DVD Funny Bidness.
From filling sold-out clubs across the nation to being seen weekly as a regular guest on Chelsea Lately, Jo Koy has come a long way from his modest start performing at a Las Vegas coffee house. His infectious, explosive energy onstage, insightful jokes and family inspired humor cross all boundaries. In 2007,Variety magazine named Jo Koy one of the “10 Comics to Watch”.
Critics and audiences agree, NY-based writer and standup comedian Michael Che is a star on the rise. Having recently been named one of Rolling Stone’s “50 Funniest People,” Buzzfeed's "50 Hottest Men in Comedy," andVariety’s “Top 10 Comics To Watch,” he is quickly leaving his mark on the media landscape.
Tickets for Shut Up and Laugh are $49.50, $59.50, $69.50 and $89.50.
