Bernice Mac died in a Chicago hospital from complications of pneumonia. He was only 50 and flying high on a great career. He grew up poor on Chicago’s south side and made a name for himself in stand up comedy, eventually touring with the Original Kings of Comedy. He was nominated twice for an Emmy, twice for a Golden Globe and won four out of the seven NAACP awards he was nominated for.
Bernie Mac will forever crack me up in Ocean’s 11 in the used car salesman scene. “Do you moisturize?”
He lived in Chicago but did so much work in Hollywood I couldn’t not post about his his sad passing.
