We was talented and funny. I remember watching his tv show. At the end of his show he would compose a song from a random line/sentence from the audience which isn’t easy. He also played spoons and eefed which I’ve never heard done before or since. RIP Mac.

The funniest thing I ever heard him say was when he was about to turn 40, he fretted and worried about it so much. But the morning of his birthday he woke up, looked in the mirror and said “hey, I still look 39”!
Priceless!

My ex in-laws grew up with him. A few years back, he came to town & I stopped by their house I’ll never forget walking in seeing him, this “big star”, sitting at the table eating a hot dog off of a paper plate. He had a big smile on his face. He was such a wonderful person.
