It’s with a very heavy heart that we have to report the news of another comedian who has passed away comedian, actor, and book author, Cortney Gee, from cardiac arrest.
Cortney Gee is best known for The Jamie Foxx Show (1996), Def Comedy Jam (1992), and BET’s Comicview (1992), Martin Lawrence’s 1st Amendment Stand Up (2005), and is the author of the book titled One Hustle.
Whats really sad is we know Gee has been sick for several months due to diabetes, and we heard that he also recently lost his wife too.
His sons posted this on Facebook last night;
Hey everyone, this message comes to you from Cortney’s sons. Unfortunately, he passed away this evening in a hospital in Atlanta. He was surrounded by his 3 sons, his sister, his brother-in-law, and Kim. Thanks for the love. Pray for his sons and family. They are hurting.
We will post any news we hear of his funeral arrangements.
Here’s a clip of his performance on Martin Lawrence’s 1st Amendment Stand Up;
