RIP Greg Giraldo

Greg Giraldo (1965-2010)

As much as it saddens me to follow up an article about a serial killer television show with unfortunate news such as this, Greg Giraldo has just passed away in his hospital room in New Brunswick, NJ.  Giraldo, known mostly for his appearances on Last Comic Standing and as a frequent roaster on Comedy Central, overdosed on prescription meds at his hotel room.  Before launching a successful career in comedy, Giraldo practiced law and attended Columbia and Harvard University.

Although this is very sad news, at least he will be warmly welcomed into comedy heaven, and his name will live on with much respect.
