Kellita Smith Star of The Bernie Mac Show Opens Up

It’s Been eleven years since we lost one of the funniest comics of our time Bernie Mac.  In a recent interview his co-star Kellita Smith spoke about being offered an opportunity of a life time Smith said  “He called to tell me he was opening up for a month at MGM Grand in Vegas, and that he had been looking for a female comedian to open up for him,” she said as tears started to form. “And he called to say he couldn’t find what he was looking for, and that he wanted me to open up for him.” The Bernie Mac  Show aired successfully for five season earning  Mac and cast more than four NAACP awards, a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series. Bernie Mac passed away  August 9th, 2008 due inflammatory disease sarcoidosis and also had pneumonia before he passed.
