While Bernie Mac has made a career out of composing humor from life's various follies, last weekend placed him in a situation where the power of laughter has proved useless.
According to BBC News.com, Mac spent that weekend in a Chicago hospital recovering from pneumonia. Fortunately, his publicist, Danica Smith, expressed confidence over his recovery, noting that he "will be released soon."
Smith also mentioned that this malady is unrelated to Mac's inflammatory lung disease, a condition that has been in remission since 2005.
Mac's humor has gifted him with success in both television and film; his sitcom, The Bernie Mac Show, aired from 2001 to 2006. His performances on the show earned him a pair of Emmy and Golden Globe nominations. He has also starred in various films, including Ocean's Thirteen and Transformers, both of which were well-received by the public.
Bernie Mac should have no problem recuperating from this setback, and once he does, he can continue to delight audiences with his blend of humor and sharp wit.
