Piers Morgan had one of his finest moments last night as he interviewed comedian Dane Cook.

“It’s a sad day for comedy with the death of Patrice O’Neal, who I know that you knew,” Morgan told Cook. “She died of a stroke today. I want to take a quick look at Patrice on Jimmy Fallon, to remind everyone just how funny she was.”

Only problem was Patrice O’Neal wasn’t a woman he was a 250 pound black man! In Piers defense the guy looks like he hasn’t talked to a black man in years. So how could we honestly expect him to be up on black comedy. [Gawker]
