Comedian Patrice O'Neal Has Passed Away

| Filed under: R.I.P.


Bummer. He was so young.

Comedian Patrice O'Neal suffered a stroke back in October, but last night, he lost his battle with his condition. His friends at the "Opie and Anthony" radio show confirmed the news this morning via their Twitter, saying:

"Yes it's true that our pal Patrice O'Neal has passed away. The funniest and best thinker I've ever known PERIOD."

Patrice was only 41.

So sad. Our condolences go out to his family, friends and fans who will surely miss him greatly.

    Dumbass is superficial and may not kill you completely…
    But STUPID is to the bone.

    is it just me or is this site going increasingly slow? is it because of all of the new ads? cause its seriously slowing down my laptop.

    I hope his condition had nothing to do with being OBESE….

  5. 5

    I'm so upset. All the Tough Crowd comedians are dying. Someone keep an eye on Jim Norton, Nick Dipaolo and Colin Quinn. RIP Patrice. You were great. He was recently on Mohr Stories and I was so happy let alone the Roast.

    What a sad end for an incredible talent. Patrice was at the top of his game and everyone who saw Charlie's roast knows it.

    What a tragic eulogy to be marked as a "thinker" by that talentless, unthinking tard Dopie, who's actually used his "friend's" illness and now death to get people to read his twats.

    Perez is racist…..remember when he went after Wi.l.iam blaming him for hitting him when it was another black guy that did it…..

    Perez doesn't like black or straight people……

    "Bummer"? You're a fucking asshole.

    ironic how not long ago, some comedians participating in the Charlie Sheen roast we're making fun of Patrice's weight… I didn't think it was very funny at the time, now I think it's even less. RIP

    He's going to be missed. Patrice always made me laugh on his comedic commentaries on those VH1 shows.

    Re: maggiiwaggii – It might not have been funny to you, but it should have been a wake up call to him. He was a great talent but you can't make people take care of themselves. It's tragic because he was young and this was avoidable. RIP.

    BUMMER? Geez… how insensitive

    Re: maggiiwaggii – What a humorless mess you are.

    Incapable of *getting* the point of a Roast — and a somewhat living testament to why so many comics disagree with having them televised, since the dumb, hypersensitive, PC public doesn't get it.

    As the great Jeffrey Ross is wont to say, they roast because they love. Patrice didn't take offense at Amy Schumer's jokes; he understood better than anyone where they came from and she made him laugh HARD during what turned out to be one of the last conscious days of his life.

    This is sad to read. He was always funny and seemed like a very nice, likable guy. Condolences to his loved ones.

  17. 17

    "Bummer"?! Show some respect for the deceased!

    Nooo, shorty. My favorite Shorty. You will be missed. One of the most underrated comics of our time.

    Re: gregoryschmo – Mine, too. I posted how slow it was before, and someone (probably Mario's minion) claimed the new site is actually faster than the old site. BS.

    That's sad he was so young. I bet all those people that were making jokes about his health & him dying at the roasts feel like douches now.
