Patrice Malcolm Oneal (December 7, 1969--November 29, 2011), usually credited as Patrice O'Neal, was an American stand-up comedian, radio personality, and actor. Patrice Malcolm Oneal was born in Boston, Massachusetts, on December 7, 1969, and grew up in the Roxbury neighborhood. His mother, Georgia, named him after Patrice Lumumba, the leader of the Congolese independence movement, and Malcolm X. He was raised by his mother and never met his father. At the age of 17, Oneal was convicted of statutory rape of a 15 year old girl and sentenced to 60 days in prison, served during his summer break, so as not to disrupt his schooling.
