Patrice O’Neal dies at 41

Stand-up comedian Patrice O’Neal, 41, died Monday night, according to several media outlets.

O’Neal suffered a stroke in October and endured a long battle with diabetes.

Fellow comedians and fans are mourning the loss of the veteran funnyman who has appeared on ‘The Office,’ ‘Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn,’ ‘Chapelle Show’ and was a regular guest on the “Opie and Anthony” radio show.

And remember, Patrice O’Neal wasn’t exactly a PG rated comic.

Here are few tweets we pulled:
