'I Ain't Scared Of You: A Tribute To Bernie Mac' Debuts 2/19 on Comedy Central

"'I Ain't Scared Of You' A Tribute To Bernie Mac" follows the development of Mac's unique performance style and his rise to fame.  A tireless perfectionist, Mac's comedy began in small backroom Comedy Clubs in Chicago and grew to break through barriers making him an iconic figure in the entertainment world.  The tribute unearths early footage and never-before-seen performances in addition to his better-known work, including The Kings Of Comedy Tour, "The Bernie Mac Show" and several of his feature films, along with fascinating behind-the-scenes memories.

Bernie Mac, who passed away in 2008, won over the audience with his very first appearance on "Def Comedy Jam," when he took the microphone and exclaimed to the crowd "I Ain't Scared of You!"  It was his sharp-tongued humor, mastered in the streets of Chicago, that had people rolling in the aisles, but it was Mac's sly smile and warm wit that kept them coming back.

"'I Ain't Scared Of You' A Tribute To Bernie Mac" features exclusive interviews with his co-stars, colleagues, friends and family including Anthony AndersonTom ArnoldAngela BassettBill Bellamy, Cedric the EntertainerDon CheadleCameron Diaz,Mike EppsAndy GarciaD.L. HughleyWarren HutchersonSamuel L. JacksonAli LeRoiRhonda McCullough, Je'Niece McCullough, Carl ReinerChris RockZoe SaldanaKellita SmithSteven SoderberghJoe Torry and Camille Winbush.
