Patrice O'Neal is 'Better Than You,' Back in Documentary Form

Patrice O'Neal is one of my favorite comics of all time. He has similarly shaped the comedic advancement of many others in the same way with his truthful, straightforward approach standup. His death was a surprise to everyone but now the producers of a documentary based on O'Neal's life have taken to Indiegogo in order to get the film created. Better Than You follows the comedian's career through interviews with family, friends, as well as Bill Burr, Denis Leary, Jim Norton, Colin Quinn, and more. The documentary is being produced by O'Neal's fiance Von Decarlo and Mark Farrell.  Go and donate today to get some neat benefits like attending the premiere and a social media shout out.
