Rest In Peace Bernie Mac!

The actor and comedian Bernie Mac passed away on Saturday, aged 50, in a hospital in Chicago, due to pneumonia. Bernie Mac came to fame with the television series The Bernie Mac Show, with which he was nominated for Emmy and Golden Globe awards. It was a very satisfying late night show for us and helped to unwind after a long day.
The Ocean's 11 series of films, as well as Bad Santa and Guess Who, a comedy remake of the 1967 film Guess Who's Coming to Dinner stands for his achievements in the movie world. Bernie Mac was one of four African-American comedians featured in Spike Lee's 2000 documentary the Original Kings of Comedy, had suffered from lung ailments since the 1980s.
Rest in peace Bernie! Thank you for all the laughs.
