Cedric The Entertainer Of TV Land's 'The Soul Man' Mourns The Passing Of Sherman Hemsley

Comedy News

Last week, we meant to post this interesting quote from Cedric The Entertainer of TV Land’s new hit sitcom, The Soul Man.


Sherman Hemsley was a true television legend. His incredible comedic talent produced unforgettable, beloved, and iconic TV characters. His portrayal of the feisty, irrepressible “George Jefferson” was groundbreaking, making “The Jeffersons” a phenomenal hit and must-see TV in nearly every household — everyone loved “The Jeffersons”! In that role,

Sherman Hemsley set the standard and laid the blueprint for me (and so many others) on how to be a great comedic lead on TV. As if that weren’t enough, he managed to accomplish the rare feat of creating yet another enduring and hilarious TV character, “Deacon Frye” on “Amen” long before faith-based television was mainstream. He truly set the bar high. Sherman Hemsley will be sorely missed. On behalf of the entire cast and crew of “The Soul Man”, we celebrate his life and wish to express our thanks to him for paving the way. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family an loved ones. We extend to them our heartfelt condolences.

Sherman Hemsley is movin’ on up.
