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)
