Comedian Patrice O’Neal died Monday night after suffering a stroke in late October, his friends confirm.
He was 41.
The “Opie and Anthony” radio show, where O’Neal was a frequent guest, confirmed the sad news on Twitter Tuesday.
"Yes it's true that our pal Patrice O'Neal has passed away. The funniest and best thinker I've ever known PERIOD. #devastated" host Opie tweeted.
O’Neal, a long-time fixture in the New York comedy scene, was a diabetic.
Comedian Jim Norton was the first to reveal the initial news of O’Neal’s stroke two months ago.
