Too Early to Loose Greg Giraldo
Comedian Greg Giraldo is Dead ...WHO?
"Who is the heck is that", most folks say. -but, one look at his photograph and you'll instantly recognize him as the "Funny Fucker" on the Comedy Central Roasts. Greg Giraldo was a smart savvy guy who told it so straight that you thought you were just having a beer with him... ...listening to a guy talk about sex and drugs and complain about politics. Greg had a quick dry insight that went by most people so FAST, that they didn't get a chance to fully enjoy the blunt wit of his raw HUMOR.
Police found Greg OVERDOSED on prescription medication in his hotel room in New Brunswick NJ on September 25. Greg was admitted to Johnston University Hospital, where he remained in a COMA for four days. On September 29 , A TOUGH FAMILY DECISION was made to remove life support. Greg was 44 years old.
"It is so sad to see this tradgegy. Greg had worked over a decade in the COMEDY business, and was finally COMING-UP! He had his first 1 hour Comedy Special in 2009 on Comedy Central. Seemed things were on the Up and UP! - This rising COMEDY CAREER was a far cry from the Harvard Law Graduate and early career as an Attorney. I kinda admire a guy who could use his mind to see beyond a career focussed mostly on "JUSTICE for the RICH", and follow his heart into comedy!" - Andrew Telker
"I am very angry. What a waste of a wonderful comedic i talent. I liked him so much. I am sorry for his children and his family. Let's hope this can be a lesson for anybody who wants to get involved with drugs." -Joan Rivers
