Breaking: Cedric the Entertainer is NOT Bernie Mac

The brilliant comedian is constantly being confused with his deceased peer

LOVING BERNIE MAC WITHOUT BEING BERNIE MAC

Cedric the Entertainer loves the late great Bernie Mac, but he'd like everybody to know that he isn't the late great Bernie Mac.

He's constantly getting confused for Bernie, who passed away in 2008. In fact, Cedric recently read a tweet on Twitter where someone was elated to find out he was still alive – 'I thought Cedric the Entertainer was dead!'

Cedric and Howard both love Bernie and wonder why he isn't named as one of the best stand-ups of all time, but he should be.

Not all hilarious black men with bright smiles and sharp wardrobes are the same.
