bernie mac

heard tonight on fresh air, a Terri Gross interview from 2001 with Bernie Mac

"my mother began to laugh and cry at the same time. when i saw that, i started laughing with her. and i told my mom... that's what i'm going to be, mom, i'm going to be a comedian. so i never have to see you cry again.

at that particular time i thought comedians relieved my mother of her pain, and that's something i always wanted to do."
