Born Bernard Jeffrey McCullough, Bernie Mac became a professional comedian at the age of 19.
He appeared in small roles in films like Mo' Money and Who's The Man, and went on to get a huge break with the Fox sitcom, The Bernie Mac Show.
Since then, he has appeared in the films Ocean's Eleven, Mr. 3000, and Guess Who.
In July of 2008, Bernie checked into a Chicago area hospital because he had pneumonia. After three weeks, his family was told he was getting better, would make a full recovery, and was expected to leave the hospital in a couple of weeks, but sadly two days later, on August 9, 2008, he lost his life.
