TORONTO, ONTARIO - SEPTEMBER 07: Actor Mike Epps of 'Dolemite Is my name' attends The IMDb Studio Presented By Intuit QuickBooks at Toronto 2019 at Bisha Hotel & Residences on September 07, 2019 in Toronto, Canada.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many people, artists, and celebrities have gotten creative with ways to digitally have fun while practicing social distancing. Some talk shows have begun being filmed from the homes of television hosts, battles are taking place on Instagram Live, and so are quarantine club parties.

Actor Mike Epps has recently added skating to the list of creative things people are doing to stay occupied and have fun while quarantining. He recently hosted an Instagram Live skate party. The actor and comedian turned on jams by artists like 50 Cent and Switch, and began skating in what appeared to be his basement.

Epps shared video clips from his Instagram Live skate party and thanked his fans for joining him. “Thank you fans and skaters for tuning in to the 1st Instagram Live Skate party last night we on to something be looking out for Thursday & Sunday is skate nights!” Epps wrote in the caption of one of the clips he shared. “Go to my story for the whole session.”
