Theater Date

August 18, 2000


The Original Kings of Comedy are stand-up comedians Bernie Mac, D. L. Hughley, Steve Harvey and Cedric the Entertainer. The four of them switch off sharing their routines and allowing fans a peek at what they are like when they aren’t performing on stage. Each of the comedians has a distinct style, and they approach their comedy from slightly different perspectives. Steve is MC, and his topics include the glories of the music of the 1970s and the silliness of some of the members of the audience. Bernie Mac discusses such topics as children and sex and attempts to mine the depths of the audiences’ minds, while D.L. discusses his marriage and the difference that race makes and D. L. discusses a black Presidency.
