GaySocialites has received word that Patrice O’Neal, the most hillarious man to grace with his presence in Stand-Up Comedy, has passed away on Tuesday Morning!
O’Neal passed away as a result of a stroke he suffered back in October. This according to his friends at the Opie and Anthony radio show. O’Neal had been a staple in the comedy world for years, and performed at the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen back in September. O’Neal was a regular guest on the Opie and Anthony radio show, and appeared on several TV shows such as Chappelle Show, The Office, and Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn. Opie had posted on Twitter, “Yes it’s true that our pal Patrice O’Neal has passed away. The funniest and best thinker I’ve ever known PERIOD.”
The world lost an insanely funny and wonderful human being. Our deepest condolences to Patrice’s family during this time.
