I had no idea he was ill.

Somewhere, he's laughing with Rick James and Prince.

Well that came out of nowhere.

Rest in peace, Darkness.

No way. I had no idea he was sick. I loved his stuff on Chappelle's show. Funny dude.

My only knowledge of him was on Chappelle, and damn that was some of the best stuff from the show. Was it a secret he was sick?

No. He's just not super famous, so it's not something you heard about.

Saw him at the Laugh Shop a few years back. Didn't know what to expect from his stand-up, but he was great.

I just remember him telling the story of his wife (who also died young), and making it funny.

RIP Darkness.

Super sad to hear of his passing when I didn't even know he was ill. RIP.

I should have put these up also as I think that they are the funniest, in particular part two. In case you have no idea, NSFW:





I think my favorite line is "Yo, we just gave him some help!", but there are a lot of great ones!

It was a secret. Only his immediate family and friends knew.

Having seen his interviews the past 6-12 months or so, it was obvious he was very ill.
