Patrice O'Neal Talks Obama, Racism, And The Tea Party (VIDEO)

After talking to Patrice O'Neal, one might get the impression that the stand-up comedian has few opinions he can keep to himself. And some of those opinions may surprise you. The gregarious, forceful O'Neal has been touring comedy clubs for almost twenty years, has appeared on shows such as "The Office" and "Arrested Development," and is a frequent guest on Opie and Anthony. He has recorded several television specials, the latest of which, "Patrice O'Neal: Elephant in the Room," premiered last weekend on Comedy Central and is currently available on DVD.

O'Neal will also appear at Caroline's On Broadway for an engagement March 10-13. Tickets are available here.
