Born in Boston on December 7, 1969, O'Neal got his start on the stage and in the early '90s and moved to Los Angeles to shoot for the big leagues. Eventually, his stand-up career resulted in smaller roles in films, as well as the HBO comedy special "One Night Stand."
O'Neal had been a staple in the comedy world for years -- and performed at the "Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen" back in September. O'Neal was a regular guest on the "Opie and Anthony" radio show and appeared on several TV shows such as "Chappelle Show," "The Office," and "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn."
Just this past September, he was one of the many comedians who poked fun at Charlie Sheen during his "Comedy Central Roast." He also hosted VH1's "Web Junk 2.0" back in 2006. Earlier this year, his Comedy Central special "Elephant in the Room" premiered on the network.
The one who used to make us laugh passed away but hopefully the laughs will keep him with us in our memories forever after.
