CEDRIC THE ENTERTAINER (Golly) is best known for his crowd-pleasing roles in the recent hit films "Barbershop,” "Intolerable Cruelty” with George Clooney and Catherine Zeta-Jones, and "The Original Kings of Comedy,” a concert documentary directed by Spike Lee, and "Be Cool,” the sequel to the hit "Get Shorty,” with John Travolta.

Cedric's other big screen credits include "The Honeymooners,” in which he starred as Ralph Kramden, Paramount Pictures' "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events” with Jim Carrey, "Man of the House” with Tommy Lee Jones, "Barbershop 2,” "Big Momma's House” with Martin Lawrence, "Kingdom Come” with Whoopi Goldberg, and "Serving Sara” with Matthew Perry. He lent his voice talent to blockbusters "Dr. Dolittle 2” and "Ice Age” and starred in and produced "Johnson Family Vacation,” which was the #1 comedy in America for two consecutive weeks.

Looking ahead, Cedric will star in New Line Cinema's "Code Name: The Cleaner” with Lucy Liu.

Among Cedric's many accolades are the AFTRA Award of Excellence in Television Programming for his Fox Television series "Cedric the Entertainer Presents…” and a record-breaking four consecutive NAACP Image Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his portrayal of the lovable coach, Cedric Robinson, on the WB's top-rated "The Steve Harvey Show.” In 1994, Cedric received the Richard Pryor Comic of the Year Award from Black Entertainment Television for his groundbreaking work as host of Def Comedy Jam and BET's Comic View.

Cedric's first comedy book, Grown-Ass Man, was released in January, 2002, and sold out across the country. In 2001, a viewing audience of over 144 million saw Cedric star in the Bud Light commercial during the Super Bowl broadcast. He was subsequently dubbed "Madison Avenue's Most Valuable Player” by USA Today and has gone on to star in a series of these top-rated commercial favorites.

Cedric's production company, A Bird and A Bear Entertainment, develops and produces feature films; "Johnson Family Vacation” was the company's first project.

As a philanthropist, Cedric founded The Cedric the Entertainer Charitable Foundation which provides scholarships and outreach programs to enhance the lives of inner-city youth and their families in his hometown of St. Louis. He plans to expand the foundation to provide similar programs nationally.
