Product Description

Part Chappelle’s Show, part In Living Color, Cedric the Entertainer Presents features one of the "Original Kings of Comedy" in an all-out-hilarious sketch variety show that was too hot for network TV. The complete series includes 6 never aired, uncensored episodes.

Amazon.com

Cedric the Entertainer revives the popular combination of sketch comedy and sexy, scantily clad dancers in his TV series Cedric the Entertainer Presents. Cedric honed a kind of cheerful, even gleeful cynicism in movies like Barbershop and Intolerable Cruelty, but he dulls his edge in this show. Which is not to say it's a flop--characters like the Cafeteria Lady (queen of all she surveys and dispenser of corn and mashed potatoes) and the Love Doctor (a marriage counselor with a Barry White fixation) are entertaining, and sketches about a couple named Cecily and Cash take a bemused look at African-American class issues. The supporting cast is energetic and eager (though notably not as funny as Cedric) and the Ced-sation dancers, who wear a wide range of skimpy outfits (including homages to Tina Turner, Bettie Page, and Men in Black), are a babelicious bunch. But Cedric seems to restrain himself, avoiding controversy and sticking with material that makes inflammatory noises but doesn't actually set off any alarms. Cedric the Entertainer Presents: The Complete Series includes six episodes that never made it on the air. Guest stars range from Ice Cube to Rick James to Anna Nicole Smith. --Bret Fetzer

that this came out on DVD, and it isn't even my birthday! Seriously, this show was a complete stitch, and it truly deserved to run for at *least* a couple of seasons. Cedric assembled a rather talented cast, with himself as the rock-solid comedic anchor. There are so few truly funny shows out there, so when this one hit the airwaves, it was the highlight of my TV viewing week. When FOX cancelled this show before it even went a full season, I was seriously dejected, and moreso baffled.

In a way, the show reminded me of the old Flip Wilson Show, with Flip coming out and chatting up the audience, then moving into short comedic skits that were well crafted and thrived off the main star's true talent for making people laugh, not through crudeness or insult, but with good clean fun.

If you like the humor of Jamie Kennedy, Drew Carey, King of Queens, Simpsons, Family Guy or the like, odds are you'll enjoy Cedric's show.

This was a great show that was cut short by FOX. It was the middle of one episode, and the program was cut short because the US began it's war on Iraq. The show never returned to the airwaves. Until now! You can own it on DVD!

Very funny characters (not sure if any reoccur because of the cut short season). If you like shows like madTV, and Chappelle's Show, you will LOVE Cedric the Entertainer Presents. This show is great, and I'm sure loaded with special features. You will laugh for hours!

I've got to start by saying that i've like Cedric's stand up for years.When I heard this show was coming on I was really excited.This show had a funny cast and I think this it would have found an audiece if it had been left on.They had some great skits like Cafetera Lady,Babies,Jingle Fever,& Love Doctor.This show also had some great dancing by the beautiful Sensation dancers.The set doesn't have any extras unless you count the unaired episodes.I'm glad released this series in one nice swoop so you won't have to commit to buying anymore sets.This set has some great laughs that was sadly cancelled before it's time so I suggest you pick this up.

Cedric the Entertainer Presents - The Complete Series is a spectacular show! It hits every mark, and lands every joke! There are also a bunch of underestimatedly funny characters. Jingle Fever(a musical duo that is inter-racial) will make your face hurt from laughing, The unaired Shleppy and Fry Pan skits ( a black guy and a jew who tell racial jokes at places like school auditorium ) is a non-stop escapade of hilarity, and Cedric hits true comic genius with the Cafteria Lady. I think you would be doing yourself a favor if you bought or rented this DVD set. Wither your black or white, you will love this show! Hopefully, if enough people buy this, the show will be resurrected. The war caused this comedy train to stop, when it had just revved up its engine!

While I knew very little about Cedric The Entertainer, save for a few guest appearances on TV sitcoms, I watched this FOX show when it aired in 2002 and 2003, to see if someone could breathe life into the variety show format. It was a brave attempt, and like SNL in recent years, had its moments, but most of the show's humor was not very funny. There is too much off-color and insult humor (the Cafeteria Lady is funny at first, but gets on your nerves after a while), and most of the other sketches are the "same old, same old." I bought this DVD set, because it was cheap, and I wanted to see if the series has improved with time. It hasn't. While hardcore CTE fans will love this show, it doesn't have a broad enough appeal for a mass audience, which is why it was cancelled, though FOX's frequent preemptions for the 2002 baseball playoffs and World Series did not help the show's chances. The Flip Wilson Show it is definitely not. This 3-DVD set has 22 episodes, including the pilot, as well as six that were never aired. CTE does deserve credit for at least attempting to bring variety back to prime time; perhaps more music, and greater use of the beautiful Ced-sation dancers, would have helped. CTE replaced Meredith Vieira on WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE? in the fall of 2013. All I can say is: CTE, you're no Regis Philbin, and you only lasted one season; in the fall of 2014, Terry Crews took over as host of WWTBAM. Supposedly, CTE left the show to "lighten his workload," but I'm not sure I believe that. Crews left WWTBAM at the end of the 2014-2015 season; Chris Harrison replaced him in the fall of 2015. With all these revolving hosts, maybe it's time to bring back Reege.

I think Cedric the Entertainer is one of the funniest comics around. I had an opportunity to see some segments of the series on Comcast a few years ago, but with a host of commercials. I found out there were some episodes that never aired at the time the show went off the air. The DVD is well worth the purchase. When the show was on the air, I wished the episodes were an hour instead of just 30 minutes. Now I have the collection of all of the episodes.I loved to watch those fantastic dancers that always performed prior to Cedric making his entrance to the stage.

Cedric is truly an entertainer. This mystifyingly short-lived series showcases his remarkable talents and is, in ways, a throwback to the 70's when Flip Wilson and Carol Burnett hosted such shows. The ensemble cast is excellent and it is obvious that they are having fun with each oddball role.

And at under $20, this qualifies as a super steal. There are PG-13 moments in each episode, but for the most part, this is pretty clean fun.
