BIRTHDAY WISHES TO CEDRIC THE ENTERTAINER

CEDRIC THE ENTERTAINER

 

You know, there’s not a lot of modern entertainers that I really  aspire to meet. I could probably name them on one finger. Be sure, that Cedric the Entertainer is certainly one of them! So it’s with great pleasure that we wish the fabulous comedian a Happy Birthday today!

Cedric was born on April 24, 1964 in nearby Jefferson City, Missouri, which is the Missouri state capitol. He moved to Berkeley, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis, as a teen-ager. He bounced around several jobs after high-school and began appearing at comedy clubs and trying to establish himself as a stand-up comic.

When i first took note of him in the Spike Lee film, The Kings of Comedy, I wanted to dismiss him as yet another knucklehead comedian…..but he was GOOD! Cedric began to appear in movie after movie in memorable character roles. His unique delivery and comic timing also made him a natural to voice animated features.

Cedric had his own show on Fox several years ago. It was a sketch-comedy series that allowed the comedian to work with a stock company and with recurring charaters. It resembled a modern version of the old Carol Burnett Show, without the musical numbers. The network did not know what to do with it and it died an unfortunately quick death. But Cedric was absolutely brilliant in it.

The actor visits St. Louis often. i can’t tell you how many people I know have run into him at the grocery store or at a restaurant and said what an outgoing, friendly, kind person he was to them. A great thing to hear about entertainment folks today.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CEDRIC!
