Great bargin featuring two always delightful personalities. However I like Miss Nash best when she plays a less levelheaded character,such as in Reno 911. I try to be careful about shows that portray men of the cloth, But I've always been a big fan of Cedric's dance moves.. So I will have to order his variety show series.

This is an excellent series. It stars Cedric The Entertainer as Boyce "The Voice" Ballentine a Las Vegas R&B singer who moves back to St. Louis to preach in his father's church. Cedric is great in the lead role, and Niecy Nash as very good as Boyce's wife, Lolli. The series also stars John Beasley as Boyce's father Barton, Wesley Jonathan as Boyce's slacker brother Stamps, and Jazz Raycole as the Boyce's daughter, Lyric. I highly recommend this series, as it is a fuuny family-friendly show with a superb cast.
