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.

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.
