NEW YORK - Comedian Patrice O'Neal has died in a New York-area hospital from complications after suffering a stroke last month.

He was 41.

O'Neal's manager, Jonathan Brandstein, says the comedian died Tuesday morning.

He says in a statement many people "have lost a close and loved friend" and "all of us have lost a true comic genius."

O'Neal appeared on Conan O'Brien's and David Letterman's TV shows and was a frequent guest on the "Opie & Anthony" radio show on Sirius XM.

His performance was a highlight of last summer's Comedy Central roast of Charlie Sheen.

Sheen says in a tweet, "The entertainment world as well as the world at large lost a brilliant man."

He says his tears "are for the tremendous loss" to O'Neal's "true friends and loving family."
