O’Neal was raised in Boston, Massachusetts, by his mother Georgia O’Neal; he never learned who his father was. He attended West Roxbury High School in Boston, where he became an avid football player. Around this time, he was convicted of statutory rape of a 15-year-old girl and sentenced to 60 days in prison.

Although he was offered a football scholarship from several colleges, O’Neal instead chose to quit football and enroll in Boston’s Northeastern University on a public housing grant, to study Performing Arts; however, he never graduated, and instead he worked as a sausage cart vendor at a train station, and sold flowers and popcorn at the Boston Garden Arena.

In 1992, he began pursuing a career in comedy, making his first stand-up performance at an open mic comedy night at Estelle’s Bar and Grill in Boston. After establishing his name on the Boston comedy circuit, he moved to New York City in the late ’90s, soon making regular appearances at Manhattan’s Comedy Cellar. He then moved to Los Angeles, however, many club owners found his act too confrontational, demanding that he change it, which bothered the young comedian. As a result, he decided to move to the United Kingdom, spending several months there working on his comedy and building his name. Upon returning to New York City in 2002, he landed numerous opportunities on radio, television and film. His net worth began to rise.

After recording a half-hour special for Showtime in 2002, a writing gig for “The Colin Quinn Show” and “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn” soon followed. The same year O’Neal made his film debut, with the role of Khari in the Spike Lee drama “25th Hour”. A year later, he recorded a Comedy Central Presents special, and appeared in the films “Head of State” and “In the Cut”. All added to his wealth.

O’Neal made numerous appearances on The Apollo Comedy Hour, on which he performed his acclaimed Malcolm XXL bit. In 2004 he had the recurring role of Adam Walker in the Fox legal drama series “Jury”, and provided his voice for the character of Baby Patrice in the Comedy Central television show “Shorties Watchin’ Shorties”. The following year saw him making regular appearances in the HBO stand-up series “One Night Stand”, and voicing the character of Harold in the animated television show “O’Grady”. He had the recurring role of Lonny in the comedy series “The Office” from 2005 to 2007, and meanwhile also served as the host of “Web Junk 20” comedy program, while also hosting a call-in show called “The Black Philip Show” on XM Radio.

O’Neal performed at a number of comedy clubs and appeared as a guest in many radio and television shows, such as “The Opie and Anthony Show”, “Late Night with Conan O’Brien“, “The Late Show with David Letterman” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”. In 2008 he guest starred in the comedy series “Z Rock”, and played Gus in the 2010 comedy film “Furry Vengeance”. In 2011, Comedy Central released his stand-up special entitled “Elephant in the Room”. The same year he appeared in the “Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen“, which was his last television appearance.

O’Neal died in late 2011, due to complications from a stroke. He had been suffering from diabetes since his early twenties, and also struggled with weight issues for many years. A year after his death, his first and only live album, “Mr. P”, was released, as well as the film he had been involved in, the comedy “Nature Calls”.

In his personal life, O’Neal was in a relationship with Vondecarlo Brown for several years.

1Being Brutally Honest
2His infectious laugh.
3Confronting audience members.
4Philosophies on relationships and race relations.
1That emptiness of "I made it!" What's it? You know what I'm saying? So I just do it because when a guy says to me "Dude... Man, you changed my life," that feels good. If a dude says "You changed my life" or a woman says "You changed my life," for some goofy shit you did... you know, that means something. That's "it". I want to change lives but not be profound about it.
2Have your opinion, don't let your opinion have you.
3[on if he ever considered changing his name] Hell, no. That name made me a man.
4[on why he did not return to The Office (2005)] It was a six-line character. I just couldn't do it.
5I like to be loved or hated - I don't like mediocre. So I'd rather have the entire crowd hate me than to have 90% hate me.
6A lot of people walk out of my show. If I've got 250-300 people in the audience, 20 will walk out. I average about 20 walkouts, which is good. Because everybody else stays, and I love that. That's what comedy is. Not everybody should be laughing at everything at the same time. That's not even natural. My thing is to feel natural, because I don't want to feel like I could just make people laugh at every single joke, every single time, with the same decibel level.
1Had two dogs: Gladys, a poodle, and Dude, a Westie.
2Signed a sitcom deal with the FX network shortly before he died.
3Survived by his fiancée Von Decarlo, her daughter Amilyom, a sister Zinder, and his mother Georgia.
4After working on 25th Hour (2002), Spike Lee offered him a holding deal but he turned it down.
5Suffered a stroke on October 19, 2011.
6His agent was Matt Frost.
7Was a star football player in high school but quit football in college to major in theatre arts.
8He prefers his name spelled without the apostrophe.
9He was named after Patrice Lumumba and Malcolm X.
10He is a diabetic.
11Attended Northeastern University but did not graduate.
