Greg Giraldo 1965-2010

Comedian Greg Giraldo passed away today after being hospitalized last week from a prescription drug overdose.  He was 45. 

The insult comic, writer, and television and radio celebrity was originally a lawyer before becoming a comedian.  Giraldo frequently did his stand-up on most of the talk shows of the last couple decades.  Most recently he was a judge on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” 

He hosted and appeared on numerous shows and specials on Comedy Central, most notably their revival of the celebrity roasts, and was considered a mainstay of the network. 

He’ll be missed.
