On 6 May 2020, Los Angeles at 18:00 PST – World renowned actor, comedian and host Cedric The Entertainer, is pleased to announce the highly-anticipated launch of his YouTube channel. With his brand new YouTube channel – built in partnership with GC Studios – the icon and Hollywood Walk of Famer will be beginning a new digital journey, uploading exclusive new content and will also be giving viewers a peek behind the curtain as he shares about his daily life.
Since the 90’s, Cedric has dominated the comedy space, from his iconic stints as host on BET’s ComicView and on Def Comedy Jam, to recognizable roles on The Steve Harvey Show and Barbershop. Cedric is also the star and executive producer of CBS’ strongest comedy series The Neighborhood, now in its second season. The launch of his YouTube channel marks a brand new era of content, one that allows Cedric to engage directly with his audience.
This is not his first rodeo at exploring new digital formats. Earlier in April, he hosted a star-studded, marathon fundraiser called Def Comedy Jam: Healing Through Laughter, alongside big names like Usher, Tiffany Hadish and Marlon Wayans. The live-stream drew more than one million viewers across Facebook and Twitch, and raised over US$92,000 and counting.
“The entertainment world has completely changed from when I first started out. With my new channel, I will now be able to create content more regularly, and also communicate directly with my fans – something I’m incredibly excited about,” said Cedric.
Fans can expect weekly uploads on his channel, where Cedric will provide exclusive, behind the scenes coverage of his shows and projects, travel, family time, and other fun activities. Viewers will also be treated to Cedric’s take on current events and pop-culture news which will be delivered with his signature style and humor. Finally, this will also be the platform where Cedric will update his fans about the projects he’s working on and passionate about as well as exciting collaborations with other YouTube personalities or celebrities doing challenges, skits, and games.
