"The Bernie Mac Show" is my life. It's the truth, and I'm not ashamed of a minute, an hour, or a second of my life.
When I get a chance to play golf or go on a boat with good people, take the boat out and put some lobsters on the grill, get the ice - cold beer and the cigars - that's heaven here on earth.
I'm not a star, and I don't want to be a star. Stars fall. I'm an ordinary guy with an extraordinary job.
I came from a place where there wasn't a lot of joy.
My comedy comes from pain. I can't stand to see someone hurting.
Fear is not one of my attributes.
I'm funny. I'm a comedian. I'm not a clown.
I love who I am. I love what I've become.
I know doing movies is where I need to be. That's where my audience wants to see me.
