Great Job, Soul Man!
24 June 2012 | by ArtstarprodSee all my reviews

Had a great time watching the first episode of Soul Man. Very funny! A lot of times it takes a show a few episodes to get its legs under it. I thought the show started strong and will only get stronger. Reverend Boyce is a very multi-dimensional character played by Cedric the Entertainer. His faults make you immediately want to route for him because although he's a preacher he's just as imperfect as we are. Character Lolli Ballentine, played by Niecy Nash is just flat out hilarious and looking mighty fine in her wardrobe. Don't miss her guys!

Let's get behind Cedric, he's a great person on television and in person! I've had the pleasure of running into Cedric a few times in LA, and actually worked with Wesley Jonathan. Two of the nicest guys in Hollywood. And again... Niecy! Wow!

Support, support, support this show everyone.
