There aren’t many comedians who could be as funny and ignorant as Bernie Mac was. Between stand-up routines like The Kings of Comedy and his softer side on the sitcom The Bernie Mac Show, he was all-around hilarious. When Bernie Mac passed away from pneumonia complicated by the lung disease sarcoidosis, he left a huge hole in the entertainment landscape.
On February 19, Comedy Central will air a documentary giving tribute to his talent, featuring interviews with friends, family and colleagues. The special will also include never before seen performances and footage from his early life. Check out a clip below…
The special will also be available on DVD and for digital download on February 21.
My favorite Bernie Mac moment is the “I hate black people” scene from Don’t Be a Menace While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood. I still laugh at it EVERY time! What’s yours?
