Today the standup comedy world lost one of its most intelligent and insightful voices today. Patrice O'Neal passed away this morning at age 41, due to complications from a stroke that he suffered back in October. Just speaking for myself, Patrice was one of my absolute favorite comedians of all time. He took despicable cringe humor and made it intelligent in a way that few, if any could match. He was a brilliant, brilliant comic and he will be sorely missed.
I wanted to share what is my favorite Patrice moment. It's from an appearance he made on Fox News after the Imus scandal. It think it nicely sums up everything I loved about him.
