Technically, Mike Epps is a triple threat. The Indiana native raps, acts, and does stand-up. But the only thing that Epps' rapping and acting pose are threats to is his chances of becoming a great stand-up comic. Best known for having hosted multiple BET Hip-Hop Awards shows and playing Black Doug in The Hangover, Epps' acting and rapping typically come across as spillover from his stand-up routines. Perhaps Epps' stand-up would be even better if he abandoned the peripheral pursuits that have diluted his overall product.
