Cedric the Entertainer tries to give a little Cyrano-style advice to a dude in a bar, but it all goes hilariously wrong because of a misunderstanding. It’s like every episode of Three’s Company condensed into a thirty-second beer commercial.
So whatever happened to Cedric the Entertainer? If he’s dead it make sense that we haven’t heard from him in a while, but if he’s not then it’s just weird. Not as weird as his name, though. It’s just plain strange to have a noun as part of your name, especially with a demonstrative adjective lurking before it, just waiting to cause trouble. It’s a lot to live up to: if you don’t entertain, you cannot be “the entertainer”, ergo your career is over.
So his name killed his career, or he’s dead.
