Patrice O'Neal, 41, Suffers Serious Stroke, According To Comedian Friend

41-year-old comedian Patrice O'Neal has suffered a serious stroke, according to his friend Jim Norton.

Comedian Patrice O'Neal, who was  the butt of sardonic health-related jokes at last month's Comedy Central Roastfor Charlie Sheen, has apparently suffered a serious stroke.
Fellow funnyman Jim Norton told radio show "Opie and Anthony" Wednesday that his 41-year-old friend had suffered a serious stroke last week, Reuters reports.
"We don't know how he is," Norton said. "We don't know how he's going to be. I didn't want to (reveal) this myself. I wish we had more news for you."
The New York-based O'Neal appeared on last month's highly-rated Comedy Central broadcast event alongside fellow comedians, including Amy Schumer, reports Reuters.
Schumer jokingly remarked about O’Neal, "Patrice has always been destined for stardom, and diabetes. So tonight is not just the roast of Charlie Sheen, its' also a farewell party for Patrice's foot."
Comedy Central had planned to repeat the roast event on numerous future occasions, which now looks unlikely.
For its part, "Opie and Anthony" released a statement on the show's Facebook page: "Our close friend Patrice O'Neal suffered a stroke last week," it reads, Reuters reports.
"Please respect his family and their request for privacy. An email has been set up for fans to send him well wishes and his family will make sure he gets them. You can write to When we have an update on his condition, we will let you all know,” they wrote.

Get well my dude!
