Bernie Mac dies at 50

August 9, 2008

Comedian Bernie Mac, who was a mainstay in the comedy and acting world for over 20 years, has passed away at 50.  Last week it was reported that Mac was doing well in a Chicago hospital and was being treated for pneumonia.

Comic actor Bernie Mac died early Saturday of complications from pneumonia, according to a family member and his publicist. He was 50.

Now most people know of Mac from his hugely successful comedy tou turned movie Kings of Comedy, but if you had cable in 1992 Mac had a breakthrough performance on Def Comedy Jam.  Mac was an incredible talent and he will be missed.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
