Bernie Mac - Thanks For The Laughs

Good-bye Bernie and thanks for the laughs. I was going to put part of his comedy act on my weekly playlist but after listening to it again I decided not to. Then I thought about putting a clip from You Tube but once again decided some of the material was just too much. If you want to hear some of his stand up routines go to You Tube - there is plenty there.

At the age of 50, comedian-actor Bernie Mac has died after being hospitalized with pneumonia for nearly a week. In the days before his death, publicists for Mac said he was responding well to his treatments.

The comedian suffered from sarcoidosis, an inflammatory lung disease that produces tiny lumps of cells in the body's organs, but he had said the condition went into remission in 2005. He recently had been hospitalized and treated for pneumonia. Mac had starring roles in "Ocean's Eleven," "Bad Santa," "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle" and "Transformers."
The comedian drew critical and popular acclaim with his Fox television series "The Bernie Mac Show," which aired more than 100 episodes from 2001 to 2006.
