1I've been blessed to have a long career.
2I love stand up and it keeps me grounded, to say the stuff I have been thinking without anyone changing it.
3It is a big world that we live in, and people have a choice to love who they love.
4Politics move, as fast as Twitter, and for everyone to think that in four years America was going to be perfect is ridiculous.
5I want to be a little more dramatic nowadays. I definitely want something big and funny, but I look for things that can just have people see me in a different light and let me mature as both an entertainer and an actor and a comedian.
6We as comics do want an immediate response from the audience. It's really quiet on the set, and there are only the producers, and the director, so a comic is looking for someone to give a reaction, even if it is the camera guy.
1Friend of Bernie Mac.
2Attended Berkeley High School in Ferguson Florissant School District. Each year he gives out a scholarship to a graduating senior through his Cedric the Entertainer Charitable Foundation Inc. The motto is, "Reaching Out...Giving Back".
3Cedric was the subject of controversy when his opinionated character in the film Barbershop (2002) made unsavory remarks regarding Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks. These comments were spoken in character, were part of the script, and he has never apologized for them.
4Appeared as the lead comedian at the White House Correspondence Dinner but jokingly remarked that he was unprepared because he thought that he would follow a humorous speech by President George W. Bush but instead followed First Lady Laura Bush who he commented was very funny.
5Sister Sharita Kyles Wilson is the foundation director of the Cedric the Entertainer Charitable Foundation, Inc., which provides college scholarships to high school graduates.
6Is one of the Original Kings of Comedy
7Daughter Lucky Rose was born to him and wife, Lorna, in November, 2003.
8Is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated.
9Worked at State Farm Insurance before making it big in comedy. Majored in Mass Communication at Southeast Missouri State University.
10Has one son, Croix with Lorna and has a daughter, Tiara from a previous relationship.
