Comedian Greg Giraldo died in a New Jersey hospital Thursday, five days after taking an accidental overdose of prescription pills. He was 44.

The “Last Comic Standing” judge was surrounded by his family during his last moments at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, TMZ.com reported.

Giraldo was rushed to the hospital Saturday after he took the pills at a hotel in New Brunswick and didn’t show up for a performance. His representative said it was not a suicide attempt.

Giraldo, a divorced dad of three, had struggled with drugs and alcohol in the past but said in 2009 that he had “conquered” his vices.

“The world lost a great comedian, I lost a teammate. The dais won’t be the same without him. I hope he’s roasting God real soon,” said friend and fellow comedian Jeff Ross, who did Comedy Central roasts with Giraldo.

He said Giraldo, who graduated from Columbia and Harvard Law, helped him fight a 1993 riot charge after he pulled out a toy gun during a show on Long Island.

“I had to go to court, and Greg volunteered to be my attorney as a favor. I remember we slept in his parents’ basement in Queens,” Ross said.

“We drove to court in a Jeep and had dirty blue sport jackets on. It took him two tries, but he got the case dismissed. He was a great guy.”

  1. Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but
    I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution
    and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then
    most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!


  2. He was awesome my favorite roaster, loved his comedy unfortunate he will be missed!
