The 9th Annual

Patrice O’Neal Comedy Benefit



Tue, Jan 18, 2022 at 7:30pm

All tickets $75



On November 29, 2011, one of the greatest stand-up comics of all time passed away. If you never saw him live, the genius of Patrice O’Neal is not something that can be described. He was beyond a comic’s comic. For anyone who ever met him, saw him perform, was on the receiving end of his signature trash talking, or simply passed him on the street, it was an experience you would never forget.

The 9th Annual Patrice O’Neal Comedy Benefit Concert is a night of stand-up comedy to honor the memory of a master comedian and true friend with performances by Bill Burr, Pete Davidson, Chris Distefano, Matteo Lane, Yamaneika Saunders, Sherrod Small, Cipha Sounds, Mike Vecchione, Rich Vos, and Sal Vulcano
