Slate discusses Patrice O'Neal's recently released posthumous comedy album Mr. P in this laudatory and honest review, calling it "hilarious" (of course), "bittersweet," and a great representation of O'Neal's superbly improvisational stand-up style. The following critical nugget was spot-on:

By needling his crowd . . . , O’Neal manages to peel away the social niceties that keep people guarded and nervous—and less likely to laugh. And so, once he’s ready, he can start talking about his life, often without even really telling jokes, and absolutely kill.

As we reported back in December, sales proceeds from the album go to O'Neal's family. Let's do them and ourselves a favor and buy it here. Check out a clip below if you need convincing:

RIP, Patrice!
