Default Another BHM Comedian & Role Model Has Died

Yesterday, TV broadcast the news that Patrice O'Neal, stand-up comic and action had passed away from complications of a previous stroke. Mr. O'Neal had the stroke a couple of months ago and could not overcome its devastating effects. He was just 41 years old. He was also a diabetic and this most likely added to his untimely death.

He was highly praised by his fellow comedians . . .and loved by his public. Attached to this obituary are some performances to show his comic mastery.

His family and close friends have my sympathy and prayers at the lose of their son, husband, father, and friend.

I wonder how much his experience in playing football had to do with his stroke? Not to lessen the impact of diabetes on vascular damage, so many studies now show the lasting damage to the brain of a former football player. I'm sure that old vascular scar tissue in the brain doesn't improve blood flow at all and significantly reduces survival from a stroke.

I'm not familiar with this gentleman and his work but my condolences to his family and friends.

41 is too soon to go

I was so sad when I heard this. He was so funny! I loved how he always cracked himself up when he was telling jokes. RIP funny man.

I'm not certain but I think he was one of the comedians who did the roast of charlie sheen? Correct me if I am wrong. Its sad a lot of the other roasters made fun of him and his size and his diabetes, and I think even said a couple cracks about being about to die. While I get the whole "it was just a roast" thing, watching it made me mad.That's all I knew him from, I read the title and was just like huh, how funny are they now that he has actually died, dicks.
