Patrice O’Neal signs off
Posthumous album, ‘Mr. P,’ is brutally funny
Today is a bittersweet day for Patrice O’Neal fans. It’s the day the Roxbury native’s first album, “Mr. P,’’ comes out. On Oct. 19, the comic suffered a debilitating stroke. A month later, on Nov. 26, he died at 41. O’Neal approved of the content of the album before his stroke, so it’s as he wanted it. And it’s a good showcase for who he was as a comic - explosively funny, disconcerting, and charismatic.
