During one of is hilarious stand-up specials, Patrice O’neal declared the Tuesday before Thanksgiving (today) as Harassment Day. A day where men in the workplace can be a bit more… direct with their female coworkers. Check out Patrice explaining it in the video below.
For those who don’t know, Patrice O’neal suffered a severe stroke last month and his status appears to still be uncertain. Comedian Jeffrey Gurian posted about his experiences with O’neal and provided brief update on his condition:
Comedy manager/producer Wayne Rada is also a long time friend and colleague of Patrice and when I saw him last night at the Andy Kaufman Awards at Gotham Comedy Club, which he was producing, he told me that Patrice’s comic friend Harris Stanton, told him that Patrice is in a hospital in New Jersey, breathing on his own, but on a feeding tube. At this point he’s only capable of blinking his eyes.
If we hear any official updates we’ll let you guys know, in the meantime continue to enjoy the dude’s material. He was and hopefully will continue to be one of the best working.
Grambling State couldn’t kill Charlie Murphy, apparently! The man has put together a montage of audiences not booing him in a highlight reel of “two years ago, Sharon won the Olympics” jokes. Or something.
More importantly, how does one “win the Olympics”?

Before you go out this Halloween here’s something to remember.
Tracy Morgan recently recorded a new stand-up special at the historic Apollo Theater in Harlem. If you’re familiar with Tracy Morgan than you already know what to expect: Ridiculousness.

LMBAO has a very… err… complicated relationship with comedian Donnell Rawlings (more on that another time) but we’re going to push that aside for now and let you know about his upcoming special on Comedy Central entitled From Ashy to Classy, airing this Saturday at 11 p.m.
Jokes.com caught up with Rawlings this week to get his thoughts on his first time on stage, funny internet stuff and the future of stand-up:
What did it feel like getting on stage for the first time?
I thought because I was an accomplished heckler, I would be an accomplished comic. I wrote what I thought was a half-hour worth of material, which panned out to be, like, 10 seconds because there’s a difference writing and performing for yourself in the mirror than performing for a live crowd. And the minute I went on stage it’s like I drew a blank and I had to resort to some things I did as a heckler. But it taught me a lesson to never heckle a comic.

From Ashy to Classy preview:
“Say it Wit Ya Chest” basically became the tagline for Kevin Hart’s Seriously Funny stand-up special (can not find a clip for the life of me, but check this out).
Well, now you can rock it on shirt, but don’t be surprised if an old dude fresh outta jail wants to have a conversation about it.
