Patrice O'Neal - Mr. P

The death of Patrice O'Neal was without question one of the worst eventualities of 2011 and nothing drives that point home stronger than the release of the new Mr. P. Patrice was really hitting a mainstream stride, having destroyed at the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen and garnering an ever-increasing group of fans through his Opie and Anthony spots and his Elephant In The Room special. Mr. P was to be his next release, but sadly will serve as a way to provide for his mother, wife and step-daughter in the wake of his untimely passing.

Recorded in front of a rabid Washington, DC audience, Mr. P shows O'Neal as a comedian who not only wrote great material, but also possessed a mastery of extemporaneous crowd work. The passing of O'Neal and Greg Giraldo leaves gaping holes in the fabric of contemporary stand-up comedy. Get Mr. P here and celebrate the life of one of comedy's best ever.
