Rolling with Laughter


True, on Cedric the Entertainer's recent HBO special, Taking You Higher, St. Louis' top comedic export may have told a few jokes that revealed a slight gutter mouth. Just don't accuse Cedric of rolling any gutter balls when this Original King of Comedy and star of Johnson Family Vacation, Barbershop and Barbershop 2: Back in Business hosts Cedric's Celebrity Bowling Benefit. The charitable event runs from 5 to 9 p.m. at Lucky Strike Lanes at the St. Louis Mills (5555 St. Louis Mills Boulevard, Hazelwood), and your $60 ticket includes a buffet (a cash bar will be available) and plenty of bowling fun. Plus, your purchase of said ticket benefits the CTE Charitable Foundation Inc., a group established in 1995 by Mr. the Entertainer and his sister, Sharita Kyles Wilson, to provide scholarships and fund art-and-culture excursions for inner-city children. Bowling teams consist of four players; celebrity captains will be on hand to coach you out of that frightful between-the-knees squat-and-roll. Call 800-749-2346 or visit for information on how to register online.
