Comedy Central Comedian Greg Giraldo passed away today (Sept. 29th) after being hospitalized from an accidental prescription-drug overdose.

The comedian was rushed to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey when friends discovered him in his Hotel room after a failed appearance at the area’s Comedy club. Confirmation came via twitter when friend and fellow Comedian stated:
“Greg Giraldo passed away today. This is the last photo of us together, taken June 28 at Noam’s wedding. RIP buddy.”
Before becoming a comic, Giraldo worked as a lawyer graduating from Columbia University and attending Harvard Law School. Many of you may remember him as a judge on Comic Last Standing and appearing in Comedy Central’s Roasts of Flavor Flav, Pamela Anderson, and most recently David Hassellhoff (to name a few). Plans for the Memorial Service will be made by Giraldo’s family when they become available.
