Over the course of a career spanning 30 years, actor/comedian Cedric "The Entertainer" has solidified his status as one of the world’s premier performers on the stage, in film and on television. Currently starring in and executive producing the CBS Television hit comedy “The Neighborhood,” Cedric is simultaneously co-starring in the hit TBS comedy “The Last O.G.”, opposite Tracy Morgan and Tiffany Haddish.
Cedric’s versatile film work spans genres from the comedic: highlighted by his memorable performances in the hit “Barbershop” franchise, “Johnson Family Vacation,” and “The Original Kings of Comedy” concert film which chronicled his record-breaking Kings of Comedy Tour with fellow comedians Steve Harvey, D.L Hughley, and the late Bernie Mac; to the dramatic with Paul Schrader’s critically acclaimed and Oscar-nominated drama “First Reformed,” co-starring Ethan Hawke and Amanda Seyfried. And his signature baritone voice has been heard in such animated hits as Disney’s “Madagascar” and “Planes” franchises, “Ice Age 2” and “Dr. Dolittle 2” among many others.
In July 2018, the actor and comedian was honored with a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Just months later, in December 2018, Cedric's hometown of St Louis, Missouri named a street in his honor, Cedric The Entertainer Way, in recognition of his far-reaching career achievements and dedicated philanthropy through his Cedric the Entertainer Charitable Foundation.
