Send good thoughts to Patrice O’Neal

If you hadn’t heard by now, Jim Norton announced this week that fellow comedian Patrice O’Neal suffered a stroke and is hospitalized, so send good thoughts of healing to him for a full recovery. For those of us who hadn’t heard of him until we saw him on the memorable and epic Comedy Central roast of Charlie Sheen, he really was a break out star on the show and was the last to roast Sheen, which says the network thought of him highly. But talent aside, let’s all make sure he recovers, and send love and light to him and his family. As Sheen said this past week, he is a gentle giant. Seems like a nice person in addition to being a smart, contemplative  funny man. Here is an interesting Motor Trend interview with him earlier this year, a good example of what he’s like, with O’Neal just going off about his Dodge Durango. Who knew one could expound so much about the Durango! Funny. Best wishes…
