Fuquan Johnson, author of the television series Comedy Parlor Live, died along with two other unidentified victims after apparently overdosing on fentanyl-laced cocaine at a party in Venice, California on Friday.
TMZ reported that two other victims were pronounced dead at the scene. Kate Quigley, a comedian and ex-boyfriend of Darius Rucker, was in a Los Angeles hospital. At least three others were hospitalized in critical condition.
The other victims were not identified pending a medical report.
The synthetic painkiller Fentanyl has appeared on the party scene on both coasts of the United States. The powerful drug has been implicated in deaths among others Prince, Mac Miller and Tom Petty.
Johnson was 42 and a frequent appearance on the comedy circuit in Los Angeles. Quigley has appeared in The office, the fan film project Star Trek: Hidden Frontier, and the TV miniseries Guber.
Police have not provided information on who delivered the drugs or whether others may have been affected by the party.
