Earlier this month, Flanagan shared on Twitter that he had contracted Covid-19, saying, “This COVID is no joke. I don’t wish this on anybody.” “The news of a loved one’s death is never something easy to hear, let alone if you are far away from the individual,” reads the GoFundMe’s description. “Our dear friend has suddenly passed away and sadly was far from his family. Ricarlo Flanagan was a loving son, grandson, cousin, nephew and friend with many amazing talents. He brought laughter to every room he walked in. We would like to get him home to his family in Cleveland, Ohio, so his family can put him to rest. We ask that you please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers. Please help us with any contribution you are able to give. This will be greatly appreciated, not only by us but most importantly by his family.”

Flanagan released his debut comedy album, “Man Law,” in 2013. The comedian went on to compete on the ninth season of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” becoming a semifinalist on the competition show. NBC is owned by NBC News’ parent company, NBCUniversal. Friends have created a GoFundMe campaign to provide assistance to Flanagan’s family.
