Patrice O’Neal is considered by most people in entertainment to be the funniest and most raw comedian since the great Richard Pryor. There is no one that is considered to be more of a “Comedian’s Comedian” then him, because his style is so in your face, confrontational, raw, and genuine, that people as well as other comics can attach to every story, every analogy and somehow associate it with their life no matter what race, gender, or wealth class they are. Over the last 20 years, he has established himself as one of the hardest and most recognizable working comics, TV/Radio Personalities, and actors in the business, while being called “Possibly the funniest man alive” by the great Colin Quinn, and having just come off a hilarious appearance as a roaster on Comedy Central’s Roast of Charlie Sheen, as well as having guest starring appearances on MTV’s Apt 2F, Assy McGee, Ed, Z Rock, Yes Dear, Arrested Development, Chappelle Show and The Office. Oneal was a regular on the FOX series The Jury, and he starred in the Comedy Central animated program Shorties Watching Shorties, along with Nick DiPaolo. He supplied the voice of Harold Jenkins on Noggin’s animated program O’Grady High and was featured as Jesus in Denis Leary’s Contest Searchlight. Patrice made his Def Comedy Jam debut in 2007, but had 3 prior half hour comedy specials with Showtime, Comedy Central, and HBO. He’s had many appearances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Late Show with David Letterman, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote his ground breaking VH1 series Web Junk 20. Oneal has also made occasional appearances on various Fox News shows like Hannity and Colmes to discuss issues regarding both race and censorship. He has been a co-host on the ultra popular Opie and Anthony Sirius Radio show, and with all of these credits, has cemented himself in the legendary annals of comedy alongside people like Pryor, Carlin, and Murphy.
Here “The King Of Kamelot” sits down with “The Funniest Man Alive” for an uncensored, unabashed, and ultra raw look into the humor and life of perhaps the most recognizable and distinct comedy minds ever where we talk about everything from his being a roaster at the Charlie Sheen Roast (And his hilarious description of my camera and camera girl on the Red Carpet!), his eating habits, his thoughts on female comics especially Amy Schumer and Monique Mervez, the greats of comedy, his impending retirement from Stand-Up, and even who girls are more attracted to, me or him! For those of Kade Nation or new viewership who have never experienced Patrice O’Neal, I am giving you the disclaimer that in the interview below there will be many curses, expletives, derogatory words, and other words that are only allowed on Cable, but you will also see a unique look into the world and mind of a comedy genius that only Patrice can provide (I was in tears laughing most of the video!). Wow..I really just gave this interview a “Rated R”, but it’s definitely worth the experience!!
