Greg Giraldo Dead After Prescription Pill Overdose

How did I miss this news yesterday?!? Comedian Greg Giraldo died at the age of 44. According to TMZ, he had apparently overdosed on prescription pills last weekend and passed away yesterday, five days after he was hospitalized. He was best known for his appearances on the Comedy Central celebrity roasts, and had also been a judge on ‘Last Comic Standing’. He was surrounded by loved ones when he died.

“Greg passed away today at the hospital in New Brunswick as a result of an accidental overdose. His family was by his side.”

What a bummer! I though Greg was a great comedian, and an awesome roaster. He died far too soon, but those damn pills can eventually wreak havoc and take you out.

RIP Greg.
