Earlier today, it was announced that comedian Patrice O'Neal passed away. He succumbed to complications from a stroke he suffered last month. Entertainment Weekly offers the details.
Patrice was one of the funniest people on the planet, and he will be missed. Our relationships with celebrities are funny. We feel like we know people we've never met just because we see them on tv or hear them on the radio. I offer my condolences to his family and friends.
In his memory, enjoy an old post of mine discussing one of his bits on sexual harassment.
