[ # ] RIP Greg Giraldo
September 29th, 2010 under Obits

Comedian Greg Giraldo passed away today from complications due to his accidental drug overdose at the age of 44 according to The Improv. He is survived by his wife and three sons.
Greg was most known for being one of the roasters at the Comedy Central Roasts and this summer he was one of the judges on NBC’s Last Comic Standing.
I interviewed him several times at the Roasts and he was always a cool dude who would make me laugh during our interviews. His death at such a young age really saddens me. When I spoke to him last month at the Comedy Central Roast for David Hasselhoff, I asked him who he would want to roast and he told me Jesus. Well Greg do a good job roasting him tonight as we know you did when you did it for the Comedy Central ones.

Here are some Tweets from people who knew about his sad passing:
