Stand-up comedian Patrice O'Neal, who appeared on Comedy Central's Roasts, 'The Office,' and 'Tough Crowd With Colin Quinn,' has passed away after suffering a stroke in October, according to TMZ. O'Neal was 41 years old.

The 'Opie and Anthony' radio show, where O'Neal was a frequent guest, confirmed the sad news on Twitter. "Yes it's true that our pal Patrice O'Neal has passed away. The funniest and best thinker I've ever known PERIOD."

O'Neal's friend Jim Norton had reported the initial news of his stroke on 'Opie and Anthony' two months ago. "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."

The comedian's last national TV performance was at the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen, where his diabetes served as the butt of several jokes. You can watch the video below.

We'll have more on this story as it develops.

Sad but true. I wish more diabetics would visit Slim4Diabetes.com. Slim G will save their lives like it did for my mom. She was taken off her diabetic medication after 2 weeks of using the product. My condolences go out to his family.
