Comedian Greg Giraldo passed away five days after he entered a hospital from an accidental prescription drug overdose. Giraldo was a staple on Comedy Central's Celebrity Roasts and just finished a stint on Last Comic Standing as a judge.
Giraldo was 44 when he passed away yesterday from an accidental overdose. Like many other great comedians, his time was up too early.
"There are no words to express what a shame it is to lose Greg Giraldo. His smart humor was unparalleled & he will be missed for years to come." said fellow Roast regular Lisa Lampanell.
