Comedian Patrice O’Neal Dead at 41 Following Stroke and Battle With Diabetes

(AllHipHop News) Forty-one year-old actor and comedian Patrice O’Neal died late last night (November 28) after complications stemming from a stroke he suffered in October. O’Neal, who had also been battling diabetes for a number of years, was one of the comedic staples behind the Comedy Central Roasts that take place every year.

Known for his witty and sometimes dark, yet very playful humor, O’Neal is a talent that often times did not have a working filter between his mind and mouth, and this led to some of the most entertaining, jaw-dropping, and hilarious, although, at times, controversial comedy of the past decade.

Most recently, O’Neal participated in the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen which was one of the most watched specials in the networks history. Along with his role in the roasts, he was also a great comedic actor having appeared in episodes of “The Office,” “Chappelle’s Show,” “Arrested Development,” and his own animated series that also aired on Comedy Central in 2002, “Shorties Watching’ Shorties.” His film credits include roles in Head of State, 25th Hour, Scary Movie 4, and many more.

This is unbelievable…I hope you and Heavy clown the phuck out up there :) RIP
