Cedric The Entertainer, known as one of The Original Kings of Comedy, is a four-time NAACP Image Award winner for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his work on The Steve Harvey Show.
Now, he hosts and performs in a comedy variety series that takes it cue from the big comedy variety shows of the 1950s.
Along with comedy performers Wendy Raquel Robinson, Shaun Majumder and Amy Brassette and the Ced-sation Dancers, Cedric delivers a fast-paced, laugh-out-loud half hour.
Each week, Cedric and his troupe portrays a wide variety of characters, including the Love Doctor, a satin-robed marriage therapist in love with the sound of his own mellifluous voice; RAJ, a golf commentator who literally can't stand the heat; Mrs. Cafeteria Lady, the judgmental woman behind the food counter with whom no student or teacher should mess; and Tanisha, the girl from around the way who injects lots of drama into Cedric's life.
We'll also see Cedric get his groove on with the many talented women in the show.
Cedric The Entertainer Presents is written and executive produced by Matt Wickline and John Bowman, directed and executive produced by Stan Lathan and executive produced by Cedric The Entertainer.
