CEDRIC THE ENTERTAINER (right) keeps audiences laughing with stand-up routines that mix sheer silliness, social commentary and 'hood humor with a little bit of singing and dancing. It was Spike Lee's 2000 film The Original Kings of Comedy that turned Ced into a household name and launched him into several other successful comedic movie roles such as the old-school barber Eddie in Barbershop and Barbershop 2: Back in Business. He performs in Atlanta Sun., DEC. 17, on the heels of his most recent HBO special, last July's "Taking You Higher." $50-$67. 7:30 p.m. Tabernacle, 152 Luckie St. 404-659-9022. www.ticketmaster.com.
