Charlie Sheen - Tributes Flood In For Comedian Patrice O'neal

Tributes have been pouring in after comedian Patrice O'Neil passed away yesterday (29.11.11).

Despite the comic having openly mocked him on his TV show earlier this year, former 'Two and a Half Men' actor Charlie Sheen was quick to offer his condolences to the family of the 41-year-old star, who died following complications which arose as a result of a stroke he suffered last month.

Writing on his twitter page, Charlie said: "The entertainment world as well as the world at large lost a brilliant man."

With Patrice's mocking of the troubled actor considered one of the highlights of September's 'Comedy Central Roast', Charlie admitted he was "inspired" by the funnyman.

He added: "I was inspired by his nobility, his grace and his epic talent."

Comedienne Sarah Silverman also paid tribute to the Boston-born comedian - who suffered from diabetes - admitting his gags had her laughing until she "cried".

Patrice leaves behind wife Vondecarlo and his stepdaughter Aymilyon.
