Greg Giraldo Dead at 44 (1965 – 2010)

Five days after being found in a hotel room where he accidentally overdosed on prescription pills, comedian Greg Giraldo died today, according to TMZ:

A source said the overdose was not a suicide attempt.
Giraldo was best known for his celebrity roast appearances. He had also been a judge on “Last Comic Standing.”
A source close to Greg tells us, “Greg passed away today at the hospital in New Brunswick as a result of an accidental overdose. His family was by his side.”

Even though I’ve always been a fan, I don’t want to whitewash the fact a (apparent) drug addiction just left a wife and kids behind by getting all sentimental. However, I think I speak for all of us when I say, “How the fuck is Lindsay Lohan still alive?! C’mon!”

Rest in Peace, Greg.
