Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

We 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. See more »

Trivia:

Cedric 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. See more »
