Comedy superstar Patrice O'Neal, 41, -- who recently performed at the "Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen" (below) -- suffered a stroke last week ... this according to his friends on the "Opie and Anthony Show."

O'Neal's pal Jim Norton made the announcement on the air this morning ... adding, "We wanted it to come from us ... we don’t know how he is. We don’t know how he’s going to be."

Norton added, "I didn’t want to do this by myself. I wish we had more news for you.”

A great comedian with genuine presence. O'Neal KILLED at the Sheen roast, so funny. Best wishes to Patrice for a speedy and full recovery.

Oh, by the way: Opie & Anthony are idiots. Not funny, no presence, no intellect...just obnoxious white trash flap-jaws; especially the insecure little one that never managed to finish going through puberty. Really, it should be the Patrice O'Neal show...or even The Nick DiPaolo Show, both way funnier than O or A any day.

I can't imagine the frustration of the politics which gives O & A a show of their own when so much better talent is available.

He was kind of a crybaby at the roast, didn't take the barbs too well.

Also in studio for/at the time of the announcement to the O&A listeners were Bob Kelly, Rich Vos, Collin Quinn, & Keith Robinson. Jim did not make the announcement "alone".

Prayers are with you Patrice. I didn't like the other comedians making fun of your weight at the Charlie Sheen roast. Cheep shots! Get well soon.

A stroke is really the worst thing to happen because it affects your mind. Wish him the very best.
