(CBS) Actor and comedian Patrice O'Neal died Monday night, according to his friends at the "Opie and Anthony" radio show, reports TMZ.
O'Neal suffered a stroke in October. Fellow comic Jim Norton told E!, in October that there was no word whether he would fully recover.
The 41-year-old comedian was a regular guest on the "Opie and Anthony" radio show and appeared on "Chappelle Show," "The Office," and even performed at the "Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen" in September.
Opie Radio tweeted, "Yes it's true that our pal Patrice O'Neal has passed away. The funniest and best thinker I've ever known PERIOD."
