CEDRIC THE ENTERTAINER has one of the most fitting names in comedy. Though he is an anointed King of Comedy, the jovial star can also act, sing and dance, all of which are displayed with a heavy dose of hilariousness in his stand-up routines. From roles in such films as Barbershop, Be Cool and Madagascar to filming his own HBO comedy special "Taking You Higher," the former BET Comic of the Year's style appeals to the masses for its diverse and ebullient nature. Cedric performs at the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center. $50-$70. 8 p.m. 395 Piedmont Ave. 404-523-6275. www.ticketmaster.com.
