Stand-Up Patrice O’Neal Suffers A Stroke

Oh jeezus. As reported on the Opie & Anthony show this morning, comic Patrice O’Neal suffered a stroke last Wednesday; not much information is currently available about his condition. Jim Norton asked other O&A regulars Colin Quinn, Robert Kelly, Rich Vos and Keith Robinson to join him on the show to make the announcement, explaining, “We wanted it to come from us. We don’t know how he is. We don’t know how he’s going to be. I didn’t want to do this by myself. I wish we had more news for you.” Said Rich Vos, “It’s hard to talk about it. He’s such a good friend. It’s too hard to fucking talk about it on the air without any answers. It’s hard. What can you say? We pray that everything works out. And deep in my heart, for real, I think everything will work out.” In the meantime you can send your well wishes to Patrice’s family at loveforpatrice@gmail.com, before preceding directly to a darkened room to look quietly at your hands for awhile.
