Patrice O’Neal is one of my all time favorite comedians and arguably one of the funniest and realist comic to ever walk this planet. He was tragically taken from this world to early in life, but had he continued the course, he would have been as propped up as highly as any of the greats.
From his tenure on The Opie and Anthony Show, to his time pushing viral videos on Web Junk 20, he would always have you smiling. Often times controversial and offensive… shit, who am I kidding, Patrice was always controversial and offensive, but he had strange ability to win you over with his logic. Even if you didn’t agree with him, if you listened to him, you could feel where he was coming from and understand his point of view.
Of anything he has ever produced, Elephant in the Room is bar none his masterpiece. He owns this performance and if you’re a fan of stand-up, you probably know what I’m talking about, but if you don’t, please enjoy.
