    Oh, man. That's awful. Always found his comedy edgy and hilarious. RIP.

    Good rule of thumb is to include a link or story when starting this kind of thread.

    (R[I]euters) - Stand-up comedian Patrice O'Neal died on Tuesday at the age of 41 following a stroke last month, his agent said.

    "It is with terrible sadness we must report that Patrice O'Neal has passed away this morning...due to the complications of the stroke he suffered on October 19," O'Neal's agent Matt Frost said in a statement.

    "Many of us have lost a close and loved friend; all of us have lost a true comic genius," Frost added.

    O'Neal, who appeared on Comedy Central celebrity roasts and on Conan O'Brien's and David Letterman's late night TV shows, was also a frequent guest on the "Opie & Anthony" radio show on Sirius XM.

    "Yes it's true that our pal Patrice O'Neal has passed away. The funniest and best thinker I've known. PERIOD," the Sirius XM hosts said in a Twitter message.

    The "Opie & Anthony" show also broke news last month that the stand-up comic, who was diabetic, had suffered a stroke last month.

    Frost said O'Neal's mother Georgia was at his side when he died. O'Neal is survived by his wife, Vondecarlo, his step daughter Aymilyon and sister Zinder.

    "The family wishes to thank all of the fans and friends who have expressed an outpouring of love and support for Patrice these past weeks. We ask that you please respect the family's request for privacy at this difficult time," the statement added.

    O'Neal took part along with other celebrities in Comedy Central's roast of actor Charlie Sheen in September.

    He also appeared in the Comedy Central special "Elephant in the Room," and had guest roles in TV shows including "The Office" and "Arrested Development".

    Film appearances included "In the Cut," "25th Hour" and "Head of State."[/I]

    Jay Mohr uploaded his podcast interview with Patrice the week after it was revealed he suffered a stroke. It was chilling to listen to becasue he was clearly a guy at cross roads. Now he is gone. Just so sad. I recommend the download to those interested.

    Very sad. RIP.

    Always found him hilarious and enjoyed all of his stand-ups that I had seen.

    Weird how on the Roast of Sheen his health/weight/diabetes was a topic of just about every roaster and he's gone such a short time later.

    He actually said during the roast "this may be my last time on T.V."

    weird.

    I also recall the line, which was pretty funny, that went something like "I'm dying of diabetes and all you mother****ers are calling me some evil, fat ****.".

    Just saw Jim Norton last night, he spoke about Patrice and said that his label increased the percentage of profit from Patrice's upcoming release that will go to his family.
