Help Fund the Official Patrice O’Neal Documentary ‘Better Than You’
There’s a new documentary in the works about beloved standup Patrice O’Neal, and the producers behind the project have launched an Indiegogo campaign to turn it into a reality. Titled Better Than You, the documentary is an inside look at O’Neal’s life and career and features interviews with O’Neal’s friends, family, and fellow comedians like Bill Burr, Denis Leary, Jim Norton, Colin Quinn, Dane Cook, Rich Vos, and more. O’Neal’s longtime fiancée Von Decarlo is co-producing with Mark Farrell, who also directed the documentary. “When Von asked me to direct this movie, I was honored and humbled at the same time,” Farrell said. “I’ve worked with some of the greatest minds in American comedy including Larry David, Jim Carrey and Howie Mandel. Patrice had a unique voice, and he wasn’t afraid to use it. His relentless pursuit of the bare truth through laughter was a strong beacon in the comedy world. I’m looking forward to telling his story.” Check out the Indiegogo campaign video below, then head over to the Better Than You crowdfunding page to contribute.
