For year’s Cedric The Entertainer and Steve Harvey have dominated comedy. The two took on crowds in different cities apart of their tour with fellow comedians Bernie Mac, and D.L. Hughley on The Kings Of Comedy Tour. Now it turns out that the two our discussing the possibility of finding comedy’s next kings. Yesterday during a call on The Steve Harvey Morning Show, Harvey brought up prior talks with Cedric to produce a series to help find some new names in comedy. Here’s what Harvey had to say.
When are you going to let me put this show out, it’s a search of the next King. You are the star of the show. The only person who can do it is Kevin Hart, and he ain’t got no time….. The Tweets are already coming in….For young acts now they don’t have a real benefit to work their craft like us in the 80’s …. We create the platform, we can do it. We can create the platform they come get at it.
As of now the series is in a talking stage, with no official word what network will push the series. You can here the entire interview here.
