On the big screen, the multi-talented funnyman has co-starred alongside some of the most renowned film actors. He was most recently seen in the comedy feature “Why Him?” co-starring opposite Oscar nominated actors Bryan Cranston and James Franco.

Past small screen successes include Cedric’s much-talked-about Netflix comedy special “Cedric The Entertainer: Live From The Ville” which premiered in 2016 to great audience response.

In June 2016, Cedric wrapped the fifth and final season of TV Land’s original hit comedy series, “The Soul Man”, in which he starred as the quirky and funny Reverend Boyce ‘The Voice’ Ballentine. The popular show was TV Land’s original hit sitcom which Cedric co-created and executive-produced.  

In 2006, Cedric’s first-ever HBO comedy special, “Cedric the Entertainer: Taking You Higher,” was the highest-rated special of the year for the network. In 2008, Cedric made his Broadway debut in David Mamet’s masterpiece “American Buffalo,” where his performance was singled out for critical praise.

 Cedric was honored with the AFTRA Award of Excellence in Television Programming, the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, a record-breaking four consecutive NAACP Image Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, The Richard Pryor Comic of the Year Award from Black Entertainment Television.

Helming his own production company, A Bird and A Bear Entertainment, Cedric develops and produces feature films. “Johnson Family Vacation” was the first under this banner. In 2009, he made his directorial debut overseeing the dance-film spoof “Dance Fu,” starring comic actor Kel Mitchell.

Cedric has joined forces with George Lopez and fellow funnyman D.L. Hughley, Eddie Griffin, (and, previously, the late Charlie Murphy) for “The Comedy Get Down Tour.” They have been performing across the country and selling out arenas for the past 4 years now.

Cedric founded The Cedric The Entertainer Charitable Foundation, which provides scholarships and outreach programs to enhance the lives of inner-city youth and their families in his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri. The Foundation has awarded hundreds of scholarships and countless incentives.

His annual Cedric The Entertainer Celebrity Golf Classic, now in its sixth year is a top charity event which raises funds to benefit:  The Kyles Family Foundation, The Brotherhood Crusade of Los Angeles, The Boys & Girls Club of Camarillo, and The American Diabetes Association.

Cedric’s universal appeal, versatility and tremendous career success spanning film, live performances and television have solidified his standing as one of the premier entertainers in the world.
