Comedian Patrice O'Neal had a stroke last week, his friend Jim Norton announced on "The Opie and Anthony Show" this morning. O'Neal's prognosis is unknown. "The family wanted it kinda kept quiet, and we understood why, and out of respect for his mom and his wife, we didn't want to say anything," Norton said. "We don't know how he's going to be," Norton added, but was quick to say that the show was not a memorial. "We wish we had more news for you, but we don't." [LaughSpin]
