Mike Epps: The Real Deal Tour

“Y’all think I’m going to hell for that one?” Mike Epps asks the audience after a particularly over-the-top bit toward the end of his first stand-up special, Underrated … Never Faded & X-Rated. The response sounds like a nearly unanimous, “Yes.” Epps, seemingly never at a loss for words, is quick to retort, “Then you’re going too, for laughing.” Though Epps more than lives up to his self-imposed “X” rating, his biggest laughs come from, as the title of his current tour suggests, giving audiences the “Real Deal.” Whether he’s raging against the smug spokespeople on daytime television trade-school commercials or admitting that people still refer to him as Day-Day (his character in Next Friday), Epps — who’s also slated to play Richard Pryor in two upcoming films — is at his best when he’s simply telling his own frenetically charged, unrepeatably profane version of the truth. If he goes to hell for that, he’ll be dragging theaters full of delighted audiences along with him, riffing on how sweaty his balls are the whole way down.

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
