Take a look back at Bernie Mac’s first appearance on HBO’s "Def Comedy Jam."
In honor of the Mac Man’s upcoming Comedy Central documentary, we had to give you a look at his first introduction to a national audience.
Bernie had the audience rolling, which is pretty impressive when you consider how rowdy they had been just moments before. Supposedly, the crowd was so angry that not not even host Martin Lawrence could get them to call down. That all changed when Bernie sauntered out on stage, snatched up the mic and told them, "I ain’t scared of you, motherf*ckers!"
From that moment, a comedy king was born.
For those of you unfamiliar with "Def Comedy Jam," the clip below features very strong language. Needless to say viewer discretion is as advised.
