If a comedian must start by looking funny, then Cedric Kyles, aka Cedric the Entertainer, was blessed–his cherubic face and diminutive frame are magnificent foils for his bottomless sarcasm and lithe dancing. He can pop and lock like a B-boy, exercising exquisite physical control; every limb and joint is in on the joke. His material is expert too: equally comfortable on C-SPAN and BET, he carefully navigates between social spheres in his stand-up routines, tailored to exploit his audiences’ possible prejudices. At last year’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner he targeted Condoleezza Rice and her corporate image: “There’s the Connie, with the nice hair, who’s very professional. Then there’s the Leezza–she’s the one with her hair wrapped up, on the phone with her girlfriend watching BET, talkin’ ’bout ‘Grrrl! Ain’t that Usher fine?'” a Sat 1/20, 8 PM, Chicago Theatre, 175 N.
