*It’s been three years since the death of comedian/actor Bernie Mac. But his family and friends are coming together for special tribute to the Mac Man called “I Ain’t Scared of You: A Tribute to Bernie Mac.”
Taking part in the all-star recognition to Mac will be Chris Rock, Zoe Saldana and Cedric the Entertainer, along with Bernie’s wife of 33 years, Rhonda Mac. They will share their personal stories about the late comedian, who died of complications from pneumonia at the age of 50. He was also battling sarcoidosis, an inflammatory lung disease.
Comedy Central will air the documentary on February 19 and an an accompanying DVD will be released on February 21.
One example of how dear Bernie Mac was to those who knew him is this comment from Chris Rock:
“His number is in my phone right now. I won’t get rid of his number. There’s only one Bernie.”
