MIKE EPPS & FRIENDS
8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $38.50-$44.50.

The biggest comedy club in downtown is opening its doors to another veteran of the "Friday" series (last week's Sommore featured in the third) when Mike Epps, the comedian/actor/prolific Tweeter brings his national tour to Little Rock. A by-the-numbers cut-up in the movies, Epps' comedy twists to the goofy everyman shtick. A sweep of footage from his stand-up videos includes topics like: President Obama smoking weed, special ed classes, "The First 48," Chris Brown and Rihanna. Also joining Epps: Capone, the "Gangsta of Comedy" and rotating host of "Showtime at the Apollo"; Shawty Shawty, "the Rockstar of Comedy" and "Wild 'n Out" veteran, and, best of all, Lil JJ, the 20-year-old Little Rock-born comedian whose seven-year acting career has taken him to "All That," a starring role on another Nickelodeon show, "Just Jordan," and, now, a regular spot on TNT's acclaimed "Men of a Certain Age."
