Comedian Patrice O’Neal died last night from complications following the stroke he suffered last month. If you never saw his stand-up or heard his many appearances on The Opie and Anthony Show, then you missed out on one of the funniest, smartest, articulate and most observant comics to ever grace the planet. Listening to him rant about race, relationships and pop culture made me laugh uncontrollably and, more importantly, opened my eyes to a profound way of thinking. I bow to you, Patrice O’Neal. You will be greatly missed.

Here’s one my favorite Patrice stories about his adventures at a rest stop.
