Patton Oswalt Declares Passing Of A Notable Film Director, And Leads A Heartfelt Tribute

Stand-up comedian and actor Patton Oswalt took to Instagram on January 11 to mourn the sudden loss of well-known filmmaker Neil Mahoney.

To deliver the devastating news and pay a tribute, through his verified Instagram account, Oswalt released a photo of the director of ‘Drunk History,’ who passed on Thursday at age 43, and added a lengthy caption. Stating he received the news on Thursday and he has been struggling with it ever since, the comedian continued his tribute with the following words:

“Neil Mahoney died. He was a director, an editor, a friend, and a rare human who listened more than he spoke, understood without judging, and quietly made everything better around him.”

Oswast, best known for voicing ‘Remy‘ in 2007 ‘Ratatouille,’ praised Mahoney by saying he has been loved by everybody around him, and went on saying as follows:

“The tributes pouring in for him show only the tiniest slice of a deep soul. There are a lot of loud, nerve-numbed monsters stomping around, gulping air and making noise while Neil is gone, and it makes no goddamn sense. And I miss him. #neiledit”

Meanwhile, Jonah Ray, the former host of ‘The Nerdist Podcast’ also released a tribute to the late director, who gained further recognition with his works including ‘Key & Peele,’ and ‘Portlandia.’ Ray said the followings in his message, in which he described the director as “one of the all-time best people in the world:”

“Sometime yesterday, Neil Daniel Mahoney fell asleep and didn’t wake up. Ask anybody, they will tell you that Neil was the best guy. He cared so much about his friends.”

Mahoney has also worked on episodes of ‘Another Period,’ ‘Ghosted,’ and more, and directed a good number of comedy shorts.

Here is Oswalt’s post.
