You are a rare talent Bernie, thanks for all the laughs...

Bernard Jeffrey McCullough, better known by his stage name Bernie Mac, was an American actor and comedian. Born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, Mac gained popularity as a stand-up comedian. He joined comedians Steve Harvey, Cedric the Entertainer, and D.L. Hughley as The Original Kings of Comedy.
After briefly hosting the HBO show Midnight Mac, Mac appeared in several films in smaller roles. His most noted film role was as Frank Catton in the remake Ocean's Eleven and its two sequels. He also starred in several films, including Mr. 3000. He was the star of The Bernie Mac Show, which ran from 2001-2006, earning him two Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. His other films included starring roles in Friday, Bad Santa, Pride, and Soul Men which was one of his final two films.
Mac married Rhonda McCullough in 1977. Together they had one daughter, Je'Niece who attended Xavier University of Louisiana where she received both her bachelor's degree in Psychology and Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling. Je'Niece has one daughter, Jasmine.
Mac suffered from sarcoidosis, an inflammatory lung disease that produces tiny lumps of cells in the body's organs, but had said the condition was in remission in 2005. Despite having the disease, his sudden death in mid-2008 was caused by complications from pneumonia.
