Cedric the Entertainer Tells Kimmel About Singing with Prince (VIDEO)

Cedric the Entertainer stopped by 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on ABC) and reminisced about the time he performed on-stage with Prince.
He told Jimmy Kimmel how he'd previously been over to Prince's house for one of the diminutive rocker's "crazy parties in the midle of the night," and even described the house for us: "It's a 'Prince' house. ... It's got all kinds of sparkles and glitter and stuff ... there's fireworks going off inside ... "
Later on, Cedric was in the crowd at a Prince gig when the singer called him up on-stage to sing along with 'Raspberry Beret.' Performing live shouldn't hold any terrors for such a seasoned veteran of the stand-up circuit, but there was a snag. Cedric didn't know any of the words.
Thankfully, he managed to keep it together and bluffed his way through the verse by humming and mumbling in the right key. Then, at the crucial point he belted out the chorus: 'Raspberry Beret!'
