Piers Morgan is really broken up about the death of comedian Patrice O’Neal. While interviewing Dane Cook last night he acknowledged that “it’s been a sad day for comedy.” He went on to comment that O’Neal was very funny before dropping a bombshell that could only come from CNN. I hope you’re sitting down.

Patrice O’Neal was actually a woman.

Before jumping to a clip of the late seemingly-male comic, Morgan provided some background. “She died of a stroke today. I want to take a quick look at Patrice on Jimmy Fallon, to remind everyone just how funny she was.”

Wow. She really hid her secret well. (Gawker)

You might not recognize the name, but the face has been present for several celebrity roasts and cameos over the past 3-4 years, and if you listened to Opie and Anthony, then the voice is probably pretty familiar too. He was 41 years old when he died.

In October, O’Neal suffered a large stroke that left him unable to speak, and he never fully recovered. Despite having been a working comic for almost 20 years, it seems as though O’Neal’s star was just beginnign to rise, as he scored his first TV comedy special last February for Comedy Central.

Fellow comedian Doug Benson, upon hearing the news proclaimed, “A sad day for comedians and comedy in general.” For those unfamiliar with O’Neal’s work, here’s a clip from the aforementioned stand-up special on Comedy Central.
