*“The Original Kings of Comedy” stars Cedric the Entertainer, D.L. Hughley and Steve Harvey will reunite for the first time in eight years on Monday’s (Nov. 14) episode of “The Steve Harvey Show.”
The last time all three were together was for the funeral their fellow King of Comedy, Bernie Mac, in 2008.
Monday’s episode kicks off “Comedy Groundbreakers Week” on “Steve Harvey.” The trio will take questions from the audience, reveal their favorite moments, reminisce over their backstage antics, talk about how the tour and movie helped their careers and take a sentimental look back at their brotherhood with each other.
Guy Torry, the original host and MC of the comedy tour, joins the on-stage reunion with a look back at the valuable lessons he learned from being around the Kings of Comedy.
Bernie Mac’s family, including his wife Rhonda Mccullough Gilmore, his daughter Je’neice Mccullough and Bernie’s granddaughter Jasmine will stop by to talk about some of their favorite memories of Bernie and the rest of the “Kings.”
Fellow comic Mike Epps will join the conversation via satellite, live from Bernie and Rhonda’s alma mater, the Chicago Vocational High School on the Southside of Chicago. As a surprise to Bernie’s family, Mike Epps and principal Douglas Maclin reveal that the auditorium will be renamed in Bernie’s honor.
Also, Steve will reveal that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel proclaimed Nov. 14, as “Bernie Mac Day” in the Windy City.
As a surprise to the Kings, they’ll take a question from a man named “Darvin” in the audience, only to find out that it’s actually “Boogie,” the man Harvey clowns in the original film and whose leather coat he tries on after “Boogie” leaves to use the restroom.
And yes, he’s wearing the same sweater that he wore in the movie.
And he brought the infamous leather jacket with him.
