RIP Patrice O'Neal

It has been a little while since my last post. I'm not sure why it hasn't really felt appropriate to write until now, but we're back. Unfortunately, since the last time we spoke, the world has lost another comedy giant. Along with the losses of Greg Giraldo and Mike DiStefano, the death of Patrice O'Neal came suddenly and much too soon.

Enough has been written and said about Patrice by people who knew him, that there is really nothing much I can add. If you would like to check out his comedy and support his family, please buy his new album, Mr. P.

Ladies and Gentlemen, give it up for Patrice O'Neal...
