Cedric The Entertainer

Cedric "The Entertainer" is a versatile comedian, actor, producer and director best known as one of the headlining stars of Spike Lee's hit film, The Original Kings of Comedy, as well as co-star of WB's #1-rated sitcom, The Steve Harvey Show.

He's also famed for his scene-stealing role as "Eddie" in the Barbershop films. Cedric currently is enjoyed by fans as the star of his own sitcom, The Soul Man, which he co-created and executive produces, that airs on TV Land and the new host of the inconic game show, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, for the show's 2013-2014 season. 

Although this charismatic funny man has spent much of his energy in recent years devoted to television and movies, Cedric insists that standup will always be an important part of his career. 

"You are the conductor and (the audience is) the symphony," he explains. "It's a symphony of laughter, if you will, and you're trying to make sure that everybody is hitting some good notes and you're making this whole, orchestrated sound of laughter."

Cedric "The Entertainer," born Cedric Antonio Kyles, wasn't particularly known for his comedic talents despite being voted "most humorous" and "most popular" in high school and came into the field accidentally. He had earned his bachelor's degree in mass communications and was working in insurance claims at State Farm when he entered a comedy competition...and won.

Working his way up from local comedy clubs to national television, Cedric 
appeared on It’s Showtime at the Apollo in 1992 and Def Comedy Jam.  1994 was a landmark year when he won BET’s Richard Pryor Comic of the Year Award and two years later, his star rose when he landed a part on The Steve Harvey Show.

Cedric’s work on the show earned him four NAACP Image Awards in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series category. He’s also starred in animated films such as Ice Age (2002), Madagascar (2005) and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa (2008), Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted (2012) and currently, Disney’s PLANES (2013).

Tickets for Cedric "The Entertainer" are $49.50-$79.50.
