It's showtime at Ovens Auditorium and Cedric The Entertainer is in the house. The actor/comedian, known for his big-time role on The Steve Harvey Show, as well as in the Barbershop movies and The Original Kings of Comedy, among other films, is prepared to take you higher. He's a pro at making folks laugh about things like having plastic surgery and dieting ... you know, all the things you can't afford to do right now because of the economy.
