Cedric the Entertainer: My Atlanta

Cedric The Entertainer’s enthusiasm for life is completely infectious. So is his sense of humor, which he’s spun into a successful career as a comedian and actor in movies like ‘Barbershop,’ ‘Madagascar,’ and ‘The Original Kings of Comedy.’ Beloved as much for his generosity as for his laughs, Cedric loves to give back, whether through his charities, or in supporting local businesses.
