R.I.P. Comedian Greg Giraldo

Comedian Greg Giraldo, dead at age 44 from an overdose.

At age 44, Comedian Greg Giraldo passed away today, Wednesday, September 29th. His death was caused by an accidental overdose of prescription pills. After being hospitalized at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey last weekend, Giraldo passed away with his family at his side. Memorial service plans will be decided by his family and reportedly made public when available.

This is truly a sad day. We have lost a very funny man. I personally remember Greg Giraldo from his many “Roasting Sessions” on Comedy Central. Roast subjects included: Pam Anderson, Jeff Foxworthy, Chevy Chase, Flavor Flav, Bob Saget, William Shatner, Joan Rivers, Larry the Cable Guy and David Hasselhoff.

Other celebrities quickly took to Twitter with their responses to the heartfelt news. “Really sad to learn about Greg Giraldo,” David Hasselhoff tweeted. “He was a funny guy and was great on the roast. RIP, Greg…”

I am also sorry to hear about this too. Prescription medicine always needs to be taken with caution. Always.
