The Comedian Who Changed My Life Is Robin Harris


The Comedian Who Changed My Life is a new series where comics talk about, you guessed it, the comedian who changed their life.

Hey this is Cedric the Entertainer, and the comedian that changed my life was the late Robin Harris. He was the first comedian that I saw that performed like a regular person. He looked like a guy that you know…or like an uncle. I realized that you didn’t have to be a star with leather pants on or a leather jacket, and it made me say, oh I can do that. And that’s what changed my life and got me into doing comedy.
