Cedric The Entertainer is perhaps most widely known for his work on the record-breaking “Kings of Comedy” tour with Steve Harvey, the late Bernie Mac, and D.L. Hughley. The highly successful tour led to the hit film “The Original Kings of Comedy,” which was directed by Spike Lee. Other film credits include “Barbershop” (2002), “Ice Age” (2002), “Intolerable Cruelty” (2003), “Johnson Family Vacation” (2004), “Madagascar” (2005), “Be Cool” (2005), “Charlotte’s Web” (2006), “Talk to Me” (2007), “Street Kings” (2008), “Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa” (2008), “Larry Crowne” (2011), “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” (2012), and the current comedy-horror spoof, “A Haunted House” (2013), among others.

Still at the top of his game, Cedric can be seen in the TV sitcom “The Soul Man,” starring as Rev. Boyce “The Voice” Ballentine, a spin-off character that originated from a guest appearance on “Hot In Cleveland.” Cedric is doing big things; he was recently named the new host of “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire”, which airs this fall.
