Watch a Tribute to Patrice O’Neal

Just before Christmas, Brandon Farley uploaded a tribute to stand-up comic Patrice O’Neal—who died just over a year ago shortly before his 42nd birthday—to YouTube. He hopes the video will drive people to purchase O’Neal’s two posthumous albums, Better Than You and Mr. P. (The proceeds from their sale go to O’Neal’s family. I haven’t listened to the former yet, but the latter is hilarious.)

With a mix of interviews, stand-up bits, and commentary from other comics, I suspect those who sit down to watch it will do just that.
