Posthumous album from Patrice O'Neal

Recorded in DC in April

Patrice O’Neal’s last album is to be released posthumously early next year.

Mr. P was recorded in April at the Improv in Washington DC and contains 74 minutes of new material.

Fellow comic Colin Quinn said of it: ‘I just finished listening to Patrice O’Neal’s new album.

‘If you want to understand what comedy is supposed to sound like, you have to listen to this. If you want to understand what a comedian is supposed to sound like, listen to this. If you want to listen to somebody who just can’t stop opening up about what he thinks of himself, and what he thinks of you, then listen to this album.’

Among the 17 tracks are routines called ‘White women are pleasant’, ‘Black women get you refunds’, ‘I like hoes’ and ‘Obama’

A remembrance service for O’Neal – who died on November 29 at the age of 41 – was held in New York earlier this week, with the eulogy read by Jim Norton. The audience included Chris Rock, Dave Attell, Bill Burr, Ben Bailey, Todd Barry and Wanda Sykes.

Mr. P will be released on February 7 and is available for pre-order on Amazon as a CD priced £11.06. The digital download will be £6.99.
