What a crappy year this is for great talents passing away way too young … Dan Wheldon, Ryan Dunn, Amy Winehouse, Jani Lane, Steve Jobs and Heavy D among others … and now Patrice O’Neal, a really talented and hilarious comedian.
Whether he was doing stand-up or sitting in with Opie and Anthony as he did so regularly or appearing on shows like “The Office,” he always made you laugh and usually made you do a double-take on where he was willing to push as he was making his point.
There’s no better tribute to someone like Patrice than to display their great material, so here’s a grab-bag of some very funny material. There’s a lot more material of his that you can check out if you’re so inclined (obligatory language warning). RIP Big Man.
