First there was Richard Pryor. Then there was Eddie Murphy. Today, there is Cedric the Entertainer. These are the kings
of black comedy, which by no means insinuates a dark or lurid brand of jokes. Quite the contrary, these men possessed an incredible
gift at taking the mundane, the profane and the insane and turning it into comedy, and Cedric the Entertainer continues to
keep that rich tradition of black comedy alive by delivering sensational performances that never fail to delight audiences
and have them rolling in the aisles. Get your comedy
tickets from StubHub to see Cedric the Entertainer live and experience his outrageous zingers!
Cedric Antonio Kyles couldn't have chosen a more appropriate stage name. Of course he is a comedian by trade, but anyone
who has seen him perform knows he's so much more than a joke machine. He puts smiles on people's faces, pointing things out
to them they didn't know were funny and helping people discover the comedy in everything around them. That's the mark of a
true comedic genius, someone who can make the unfunny funny or the tragic comic. Cedric the Entertainer delights like nobody
else, and with theater tickets from StubHub,
you can see him live!
Like many comedians, Cedirc the Entertain could have just as easily not been an iconic funnyman and instead toiled forever
in a life of mediocrity. Before coming to the stage as one of the Original Kings of Comedy, Cedric Kyles was an insurance
salesman for State Farm. Not that there's anything wrong with that, as fellow comedian Jerry Seinfeld would say, but it just
doesn't seem like a fitting life a man of so much joy and laughter, nor would it be fair to the millions of fans Cedric has
delighted if they were to be denied his fantastic brand of comedy. But of course fate intervened, and now Cedric is where
he should be, onstage doling out the laughs!
It's not a journey most people have the guts to take let alone the talent to see it work, but Cedric the Entertainer is
no ordinary man. There was just too much humor and energy to this affable funny guy, not to mention an insatiable urge to
make people laugh, and that's what drew him to the stage and the microphone. He went from selling insurance to winning BET's
Richard Pryor Comic of the Year Award. Such an honor could only be bestowed on a truly gifted comic and performer, and BET
was exactly right when it declared there was nobody better suited to carry the torch ignited by Richard Pryor than Cedric
After Cedric the Entertainer appeared on It's Showtime at the Apollo in 1992, it was clear not only had he arrived in the
big leagues of comedy, but he was sure to go on to conquer the comedy entertainment world. Since then, he's lent his comic
talents to dozens of films, most notably in Spike Lee's the Original Kings of Comedy sharing the stage with so many of African
Americans' most iconic humorists. With tickets from StubHub, you can see this king lord over his comedic kingdom live!
