Hearne on the Street: Mike Epps Does Gates, Glazer, Midland

It was like old home week backstage at the Midland friday night when Mike Epps roared into the dressing room and clapped a highly animated bear hug on his old pal Craig Glazer of Stanford & Sons comedy club…

Epps new movie “Next Day Air,” a comedy about a bungled drug drop debuted that day and the comic was definitely up for the Gates Bar-B-Q chicken wings backstage and the packed house that awaited.

Epps connection to Glazer dates back to the many standup shows he did at the former Westport Stanford’s.

There’s more…

“Mike was in prison back in ther late 70s or early 80s, I think,” Glazer says. “He told me about it when he first played Stanford’s around 1997. He was already one of the top three or four black comics then. he was up there with D.L. Hughley, Chris Rock and Damon Wayans.”

Here’s how it went down, as Glazer recollects…

“We were talking and he said, ‘You know, I’ve been in prison too.’ Then my brothers Jeff and Jack walked in and jack said, ‘Yeah, I remember you from the Springfield, Mo. federal prison.’ I think he did two or three years in Springfield.”

For the record all three Glazer brothers did slam time, Craig’s adventures and misadventures are outlined in his best-selling crime book King of Sting. Online news accounts of Epps refer to

    Righto David L.!

    I think the problem is Hearne is sleeping with Craig who found out in the slammer how good it feels in the canner.

    Nowadays I’ve found an interesting site Photoshopped Image Killer that can detect faked images. Most image analysis software will be created to recognise shapes and objects. But this software is something which can trace manipulations. It’s not much more complex than recognising objects, but almost no one is interested in this kind of software except of course to detect if an image is real or fake…
