Unless you've been keeping up on your Nick at Nite sitcoms, or sat through any of the recent Madagascar movies, it's been a cool minute since Cedric the Entertainer was on our main radars. But one of the Kings of Comedy hasn't slowed down (but we might remark that he's slimmed down quite a bit!), and heads into Orange County for an anticipated stand up performance. Acting aside, this is what the man does best. The beginning of his career saw him win prestigious awards like the Richard Pryor Comic of the Year Award and the Miller Lite Comedy Search grand prize, along with Bernie Mac—and now, 20-plus years later, the man is a bona-fide, seasoned comedy veteran. You know you're in for one damn funny show tonight.
