Patrice O’Neal’s new posthumous single, “Better Than You”

“Don’t be mad about it. Don’t be mad!” That’s Patrice O’Neal, a few minutes into a bit in which he explains how men are better than women, pleading his case to the women in the comedy club audience.

Thomas Dale on Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson

Thomas Dale doesn’t think it’s very sexy if a woman walks around naked in nothing but high heels. And that’s not just because he’s a gay Italian New Yorker. No. The comedian also doesn’t want to see a guy naked but still wearing his sneakers. In his first performance on Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on Friday night (technically, his second appearance, as his performance was taped a couple of weeks ago but bumped due to time back then), Dale talks about growing up gay in a family full of straight people, his father the NYPD detective, traditions within...
