Greg Giraldo dies

TMZ is reporting that comedian Greg Giraldo, who was hospitalized over the weekend after an apparent accidental overdose, has died.

"RIP Greg Giraldo" is already the top trending topic on Twitter as fans and other comedians mark his passing.

Close friend and fellow comedian Jim Norton: "Greg Giraldo passed away today. This is the last photo of us together, taken June 28 at Noam's wedding. RIP buddy."

Sarah Silverman: "RIP Greg Giraldo. Belly-laugh hilarious, prolific, good & kind. A thousand oys can't express."

Jamie Kennedy: "greg giraldo. the world has lost a brilliant mind. i was very fortunate to watch greg at the laugh factory many times. he was gutbusting.RIP"

Dane Cook: "Greg Giraldo may you RIP. My thoughts & prayers go to his family, friends & fans."

Giraldo was a reliably funny regular on Comedy Central roasts and had most recently served as a judge on NBC's reality competition show, "Last Comic Standing." In a 2005 Conan O'Brien appearance, Giraldo -- who had a history of substance abuse -- said that he had quit drinking.
It really sucks.

He was one of my favorite comedians, and was really funny on roasts.

That blows.

He wasn't really one of my favorites, but I did like his humor, especially on the roasts.

that sucks the guy was crazy funny, always a sad thing to hear about a comic who succumbs to their personal demons

But a true champion, face to face with his darkest hour, will do whatever it takes to rise above. A man fights, and fights, and then fights some more. Because surrender is death, and death is for pussies- kenny powers

Just heard about this, and it does indeed suck. I won't pretend to be devastated, or that I was some huge fan, but the man was genuinely under-rated. His work on those celebrity roasts typically went unmatched. Very funny, very clever, and very under-rated comedian. And far too young. RIP.

It's really sad when these guys overdose. Apparently he was just at a party and it happened, and was found the next day or something like that.

He will be missed at all future roasts, and I wonder if anyone mentions him at the next roast.
