NEW YORK — Veteran stand-up comic Patrice O’Neal, who expanded his following through TV and radio, died Tuesday from complications of a stroke he suffered last month. He was 41.

His manager said Mr. O’Neal died in a New York-area hospital.

Mr. O’Neal appeared on Conan O’Brien’s and David Letterman’s TV shows and was a frequent guest on the “Opie & Anthony” radio show on Sirius XM. His performance was a highlight of the Comedy Central roast of Charlie Sheen, who had been fired from the hit CBS comedy “Two and a Half Men,” in September.

“The entertainment world as well as the world at large lost a brilliant man,” Sheen said on Twitter. “Patrice had that rare ‘light’ around him and inside of him. I only knew him for the few days leading up to the roast. Yet, I will forever be inspired by his nobility, his grace and his epic talent.”

Other entertainers also mourned Mr. O’Neal on Twitter.

“RIP Patrice O’Neal. You made us laugh til we cried,” comedian Sarah Silverman said.

Actor Jay Mohr said, “Just ridiculous. Terrible. Beyond sad.”

Mr. O’Neal had half-hour specials on Showtime and HBO and was the host of “Web Junk 20” on VH1. He appeared in prime-time series including “Arrested Development,” “Chappelle’s Show” and “The Office.”
