The Comedy Get Down feat. Cedric the Entertainer, Eddie Griffin, D.L. Hughley and More on Friday, February 16



Highlights

  • The Deal

    The Comedy Get Down

    • Cedric the Entertainer: It may have been his induction into The Original Kings of Comedy that turned the most fans onto his wily, honest, yet rarely vulgar standup routine. He’s since made the leap to several Hollywood blockbusters, including the Madagascar series and the Barbershop films.
    • Eddie Griffin: This gritty veteran quipster stole the show in Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo and owned the lead role in Undercover Brother.
    • D.L. Hughley: Also a royal member of The Original Kings of Comedy, Hughley was the first host of BET’s Comicview and parlayed his huge success into the hit series The Hughleys.
    • George Lopez: After a successful six-season run of his self-titled series on ABC, this accomplished comedian, actor, and talk-show host continues to slay audiences with his raucous yet socially conscious standup act that reflects on the Latin American experience.

    Riverside Theater

    As vaudeville heaved its last breaths in the late 1920s, RKO’s Riverside Theater opened in 1928 and served as a performance hall for just a few years before Warner Brothers took it over to screen their films. Decades of neglect followed, reaching a nadir in 1966 when a carelessly tossed cigarette butt incinerated the proscenium’s drapery, prompting the cash-conscious owners to replace the opulent teal velour with workmanlike duvetyn. A slated demolition in 1982 nearly replaced the theater with a shopping mall before a coalition of citizens convinced philanthropist Joseph Zilber to save the space. In the subsequent renovations, craftsmen installed plush red drapery, overhauled the obsolete lighting, and repainted the faded French Baroque gilding of the auditorium, restoring the elegant space to its former glory and inspiring it to get back out on the theater dating scene.
