Damn man we can’t even end off the year without another person passing on. For everybody who don’t know funnyman Patrice O’Neal has passed awayÂ this afternoon.
It’s so sad, we’re losing yetÂ another fellow black person in the entertainment world. Patrice O’Neal was an American stand-up comedian, radio personality, and actor. Most known for his cutting, often confrontational crowd work during which he often plays couples against each other. Which was always so damn FUNNY!!!
He died on November 28, 2011 following complications from a stroke he suffered a month earlier which was diabetes-related and he never fully recovered from it. SMFH!!!!
The last time I saw him on TV, was the Roast of Charlie Sheen in which Amy Schumer proceed to goÂ INÂ (andÂ when I say go in, I mean IN!!!)Â on him about his diabetesÂ and grandma LOL. At first I thought it was all jokes and games, but come to find out it was all true.Â In case you missed it, check it out below.

Anyways the news was delivered via twitterÂ of radio host Gregg â€œOpieâ€ Hughes, who was very close to Patrice and also broke the original news of his stroke back in October. His tweet read, â€œYes itâ€™s true that our pal Patrice Oâ€™Neal has passed away. The funniest and best thinker iâ€™ve ever known PERIOD. #devastatedâ€
I’m really mad at this because he was HILARIOUS!!!! His material was always so on point and just kept the people rolling. But he also was a very nice person, you could just tell by the way he carried himself. I’m super sad about this one.
🙁 Here’s some of his stand-up work from his special “Elephant In The Room”
