Cedric The Entertainer is opening up about a possible The Original Kings Of Comedy Reunion.
In a recent interview on the Variety and iHeart podcast The Big Ticket, the comedian disclosed that a reunion of The Original Kings Of Comedy was very likely.
“It seems like it may be actually getting a little closer,” he revealed, adding, “There’s some talks of possibly doing a very limited run for the fun of it, doing like a 12-city run.”
Directed by Spike Lee, the film continued an established Black stand-up tradition paved by Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy and Redd Foxx. It saw Bernie Mac, Steve Harvey, D.L. Hughley and Cedric The Entertainer reprise popular, controversial topics of race, Black family dynamics and religion with distinctly different twists. The success of the film undoubtedly laid the foundation for the actor-comedians’ later projects as the decade progressed.
Cedric the Entertainer currently stars on CBS’s The Neighborhood. He is in post-production on Son of the South, executive produced by Spike Lee, and is also expected to return for a Johnson Family Vacation sequel in development at Searchlight.
