Seasonal Special Happenings

King of Comedy

When: Fri., Oct. 18, 8 p.m. 2013

One of the few comedians who has truly made the transition into acting, Cedric the Entertainer has certainly come a long way from the days when he was trying to make an impression on programs such as It's Showtime at the Apollo and Def Comedy Jam. Not all of his films have been hits (2007's horrid Code Name: The Cleaner was a real bust), but movies such as Barbershop have showed off his acting abilities. And he even held his own on Broadway, where he acted in a revival of American Buffalo. Expect Cedric, who has a big, booming voice, to take on current events and use lots of slang in his monologue. He performs at 8 tonight at the State Theatre. Tickets are $59.50 to $72.50. (Niesel)
