Comedian Patrice O’Neal died Tuesday morning of complications from a stroke he suffered one month ago. He was forty-one.
Mr. O’Neal was a regular guest on several TV and radio shows, including Tough Crowd With Colin Quinn and The Opie and Anthony Show. He appeared in films, guest-starred on several popular television shows (you may remember him as T-Bone the “flamer” on Arrested Development) and helped grill Charlie Sheen during his Comedy Central roast.
Comedy Central has set up a tribute page to the comedian and will air his special, Elephant in the Room, tonight at 8 p.m. and again at midnight.
