  1. Flame on, T-Bone.

  2. Ahh yes, the well known Curse of Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn. If I were Nick DiPaolo of Jim Norton, I’d be making sure my life insurance was paid up right about now.

    • I just said this on facebook and no one knew what Tough Crowd was. It’s a shame, that show introduced me to comedians when I was in middle school. Anybody know how Keith Robinson is doing?

  3. This is an awesome video of Patrice on Fox news, defending questionable jokes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=fjIuPSuYSOY#

  4. Oh no! That is terrible news! I didn’t even know he had a stroke… Damn. He made me laugh a lot. Goodbye, Patrice.

  5. I remember watching the last road that was on, Charlie Sheen’s, and Patrice was last to go. It was very visible that at some point during the show, he realized where he was and what he was actually doing. He decides to wing it, and kills it, only because half of his set was shrugging and pointing out, “What the fuck is Mike Tyson doing here? No, really, what is he doing here?” It was too funny.

  6. webjunk 20 was literally just the chance for him to be as hilarious as possible. Jim Brewer paled in comparison. also he was a more than a bit pale in comparison. hiyo! – ed mcmahon in heaven

  7. Erin go br— ah, fuck, I thought he was Irish.

    He was a funny guy who put in the work where others slacked off. Consistent is a solid compliment in the world of comedy, and he earned it rightfully. His humor was edgy at times without being offensive, and he hit that sweet spot of black comedy that was authentic, but still accessible to white folk. I imagine he would have eventually landed some key movie roles if Tyler Perry didn’t already own a fat suit.
