Patrice O'Neal suffers a stroke

Patrice O’Neal, the actor/comedian who recently was part of the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen, suffered a stroke last week. According to E! Online, fellow comic Jim Norton announced the sad news during the Opie and Anthony radio show, which O’Neal often frequents, on Wednesday morning. Norton told the hosts and listeners of the program, “We don’t know how he is. We don’t know how he’s going to be. I didn’t want to do this by myself. I wish we had more news for you.”

O’Neal, who hosted VH1’s Web Junk 20 and was featured on The Office, has diabetes.
