In Memory of Patrice O’Neal

Hello friends,

About a year ago, the world lost one of the funniest Comedians around. Patrice O’Neal passed away the age of 41. Patrice was one of the funniest, truth-telling Comedians around. I hadn’t even started Stand-Up when I first saw Patrice, but he had he me laughing incredibly hard. As I grew as a person, designer and comedian, I always found a new level of appreciation for a Comedians I had grown up listening; Patrice O’Neal was no exception. His irreverent and brave style of Comedy is definitely influencing me today and I only hope to have a fraction of how talented and successful he was! In honor of Patrice, the folks at Venkat created a badge for today. I hope you guys like it. We all miss you Patrice!
