Stand-Up Comic Patrice O’Neal Has Died


The great comic Patrice O’Neal, who suffered a stroke a few weeks ago, has passed away, Opie of Opie & Anthony (where O’Neal was a frequent guest) has confirmed. This is very sad news for fans of comedy and fans of good people in general, and there’s not much we can do about it but just be sad for a while. And enjoy his comedy; after the jump is his performance from the 2011 New York Comedy Festival, and here is his interview on WTF with Marc Maron.
