Whatever you do, don’t call him Day-Day. He hates that name. After getting his major break with Def Comedy Jam in the mid-’90s, comedian Mike Epps built a decades-long career in entertainment. He’s played memorable roles in films like Next Friday (and the one after that) and The Hangover and has written a book about overcoming life’s struggles. But don’t worry, he’ll probably keep it light at this weekend’s stop in Sacramento. 12401 Folsom Boulevard in Rancho Cordova, www.tommytsrancho.com.
