The recently destructive events that took place in Houston, Texas, as a result of Hurricane Harvey saw several residents of the city lose everything they had.
Seeing that the number of people in need keeps growing by the minute, celebrities have taken the time to donate hundreds of thousands of dollars to help. However, several of them have broadcasted their hefty donations on social media, and one person who isn’t here for that is comedian Mike Epps.
Celebs like Kevin Hart, who started the #HurricaneHarveyChallenge, Drake, Waka Flocka Flame, T.I. and more have taken to social media to share how much they were donating to those affected by the natural disaster.
Epps took to Instagram to explain that being charitable now seems like a competition to see who is the “biggest celebrity.”
Mike Epps is ready to reveal his new girlfriend, publicly. This week, the 46-year-old comedian posted a photo of his girlfriend Kyra Robinson on social media. Epps posted the photo with no caption. Kyra also posted the photo on her Instagram account.
According to Kyra’s social media bio, she’s currently works at the OWN Network and is a producer on Iyanla: Fix My Life. Epps is currently in the process of divorcing his wife of 10 years, Mechelle Epps. Mike filed for divorce in 2016. The pair share two children together.
We are shining the light on a young man, who has been known to grind hard as a successful Comedian and Filmmaker. Calvin Howard has not only captured attention in the Southern region but even as far as the West Coast!
Calvin S. Howard or (Mr. Grind), as many of his fans know him by, has a stage name that truly speaks for itself. From a very young age, he has been doing just that…Grinding! Howard has been entertaining the social media world for over a decade. He started off doing live prank phone calls and innovating hilarious remakes of songs in Yahoo chat rooms. Calvin later branched out from the chat rooms to the site, known as Myspace. There he went on to record his comedy videos for fans to listen and download. Through this grind, he found his talent in Video production and Comedy. This later turned into a long-term passion!
Howard worked hard to research and teach himself everything he knows about the entertainment industry, and has successfully executed these talents. He has been demanded in several states and countries just from his popularity on YouTube. This innovative Comedian and Video producer captivates his audience by finding new ways to put a twist on old school types of comedy, whether its creating side cracking skits or producing stand-up comedy shows.
Calvin found his artistry in Videography while shooting his own personal comedy productions (Mr. Grind’s Comedy) in the past and is currently expanding his talents into the field of cinematography. With over 10 years of video experience under his belt, he has become a well-seasoned cinematographer specializing in commercials, party events, music videos, short films and more.
So what led the young Comedian & Filmmaker into pursuing a career in comedy?
“I always knew I wanted to do comedy. When I was in junior high school, the teacher asked everybody what they wanted to be and I said a Comedian. One young lady in class was like, “A Comedian….you’re not even funny”, but after a while I started going to the blog chat rooms on Yahoo, AOL, etc. and started doing prank phone calls, and remaking songs by playing the instrumentals to make people laugh. Soon after, I started getting really popular in the chat rooms. People would request me to do prank phone calls and more. I was never really inspired by anyone to pursue comedy, but more so inspired by making people laugh”.
Howard has proven to be the example of hard work in the game, since making his popular appearance on the social media scene 10 years ago! He has maintained a successful social media following of over 200K subscribers on YouTube, and millions of viewers on all social media sites. He has traveled as far as Los Angeles, CA to help conduct the filming of trailers for clients for Love & Hip Hop as well as assisted on set for a host of Music Artists & Music Producers.
Calvin Howard known to many in the capital city of Montgomery, Alabama , has brought the city Comedy Shows, and teamed up with a multitude of comedians to bring laughter back into the communities. His comedy parodies have landed him exposure on popular sites such as World Star Hip Hop on numerous occasions, topping out with over a million views, and even capturing the attention of Celebrity Artists!
Howard has definitely lived up to his famous name “MrGrind” for his continuous hard work.
“I gave myself the name “Mr. Grind” because I’m a multi-talented person and I basically grind and hustle in many different ways. At one point I sold on eBay, sold merchandise and at the same time I was doing comedy, and videos. I found many different niches to make money. So that’s what I felt I was doing…just grinding, and of course it wasn’t no stripper name (laughing) in case people were wondering.”
Calvin has the gift to naturally make people laugh. This is what fans adore about him the most and what will forever continue to mold & push his career forward into greater heights for the industry. Outside of filming he is busy interacting with his fans daily via social media and staying involved with what’s going on around them in the community.
Howard spoke briefly on some goals he plans to work towards in the upcoming year as well as his learning experiences over the years, stating:
“I plan to remain consistent with my comedy and work on having an organized show whether it’s via social media or on a network. I want to showcase a variety of entertainment around the world throughout my production.”
“My comedy has helped me grow in many ways because it has allowed me to experience many different types of people. You will have people that are really trying to help you out and you have some who are just trying to benefit from you. Through it all, you learn to appreciate the actual fan base that stays loyal to you and continues to watch you. They are the ones that really support you more so than the people that might be the closest to you.”
The young Filmmaker & Comedian is looking to team up with television networks to produce his own Reality TV series soon! He is one to keep your eyes on and you can definitely expect great things from him in the upcoming year!

However, finding it soon becomes the least of their worries in a place haunted by dark memories.

I had the pleasure of catching one of his shows in Atlanta, GA and the entire spot was on the edge of their seats in laughter the entire performance. Jackson has always proven himself to be very down to earth and realistic when it comes to reaching the audience. I believe what we adore the most is his knowledgeable way of relaying information to us while keeping it real about society and life experiences.
Not only has the 32 year old been busy making us all laugh and entertaining us in the movies, he currently has his own clothing line! Yes Mr. Jackson is a business man with his hands quite busy these days. The clothing line represents his spiritual view on life and is called, Kingdom Clothing.

About Brandon T. Jackson:
Brandon Timothy Jackson( March 7, 1984) was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, he is the son of Beverly Yvonne (Bozeman) and Wayne Timothy Jackson. His parents are both pastors, and his maternal grandfather was a Pentecostal child preacher. He credits his sense of humor to both his father and his life straddling the fence between suburbia and the inner city.
Brandon held the title of “class clown” and grew his passion for comedy and acting by doing talent shows and performing at youth nights at his father’s church. By age 14, Brandon’s career as a stand-up comic evolved from local school shows and community projects, such as the “Motor City Youth Festival”, to an appearance in Marc Cayce‘s film, Nikita Blues (2001).
Brandon took an internship at local Detroit radio station 93.1 FM and soon found himself as a guest host at 105.9 FM. Brandon’s drive took him to Hollywood where, in 2001, he was cast as an extra in major movies such as Ali (2001), Bowling for Columbine (2002) and 8 Mile (2002). He began to get calls to open up and work with comedians, such as Chris Tucker and Wayne Brady.
After Brandon’s performances at New York City’s “Showtime at the Apollo” and BET’s Comicview (1992), the 19-year-old actor/comedian was cast in his first major movie role as Shad Moss‘s (X) best friend, “Junior”, in Roll Bounce (2005). He won Black Reel’s 2006 Best Breakthrough Performance award for his performance.
Jackson starred opposite NBA basketball superstar Kevin Durant in Thunderstruck (2012) and’Martin Lawrence (I)’ in the third incarnation of the highly profitable Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son (2011) franchise released by Fox in 2011.
