    by Lanford Beard

    EW has confirmed that comedian Patrice O’Neal has passed away after a long-term battle with diabetes. The news came today from the official Twitter stream of The Opie & Anthony Show, on which O’Neal was a regular guest. His booking agent Matt Frost released this statement:
    It is with terrible sadness we must report that Patrice O’Neal has passed away this morning at 7:00am due to the complications of the stroke he suffered on October 19. Many of us have lost a close and loved friend; all of us have lost a true comic genius. His mother, who was also his best friend, was at his side. Patrice is survived by his wife, Vondecarlo; his step daughter Aymilyon, sister Zinder, and his mother Georgia. 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.​

    He was just on the Charlie Sheen roast.

    I really didn't know who he was prior to that.

    Welp, they said he was going to die. Guess they were right.

    R.I.P. you'll be sorely missed.

    Condolences to his family.

    This kinda hits me hard because of how he died. Diabetes is something that's run in my family and I've been lucky that I don't have it yet. I just pray to God I don't get it one day. It's one of the reasons I started working out and eating healthy. If I hadn't starting working out and watching what I eat I'd probably have it right now.

    Saw him at the Improv here and me and my date decided to sit right in front. And we got on his radar as the new couple in his routine. He was hilarious and he kept coming back to us throughout his set.

    RIP guy

    He was a funny dude. People have to realize you're playing with fire when you are morbidly obese. It's so unfortunate that people get at the bottom of that hill and are never able to get it under control.

    RiP and prayers go out to his family and loved ones. First saw him when he was a regular guest on Tough Crowd on comedy central.
    Sad news and way to young to go.

    Yes and even though he had to know some of the jokes were going to be about him I think he really did get a little mad at that one girl for joking about his condition.

    Guy was pretty funny in a lot of smaller roles over the years.

    That was the FUNNIEST joke of the roast.

    "Patrice 0'neal has diabetes. So this isn't only a roast for Charlie Sheen, but a farewell party for Patrice's foot."
