Steve would go on to offer some advice to J.R. on how he can overcome his publicized mistake and his prediction for the series, which we would find out wouldn’t be the case.

If you can recall, last month, Comedy Hype spoke with Steve Harvey in which he revealed that a Kings Of Comedy reunion that almost happened. Now in a new talk with Huffington Post, Harvey’s tour-mate Cedric The Entertainer has now added some details to the story. Cedric would confirm that there were talks of them doing a Kings Of Comedy reunion tour and they were considering to feature Bernie Mac as a hologram.

After Mac died of pneumonia in 2008, Cedric admitted that the “Original Kings of Comedy” crew from the 2000 film (D.L. Hughley and Steve Harvey) just didn’t feel right moving forward without their friend. “Nobody really wanted to do it without him. It was this weird thing: Do we replace Bernie with someone? Do we do it without him? Do we do him as a hologram like at Coachella with Tupac? How weird do we want to go with this?” “The technology was supposedly getting a lot better, and maybe we would do a short bit where we put Bernie up in this hologram situation,” Cedric explained. “It was gonna be an expensive task. MTV still had the rights to the film, and I think they were transitioning into some other things. The idea never manifested all the way.” As it turned out, it wasn’t Mac’s absence nor the expense of a hologram that kept a reunion from happening, but Harvey’s busy schedule.
