    rip this was a very talented comedian, bright guy (an ivy leaguer), and had i think he had kids. one of the few true, legitimate, comedians around. i used to see him in my neighborhood in hollywood frequently and very nice.

  5. 5

    Erm… You forgot to say "so sad". That is after all your standard phrase when somebody dies.

    Overdose? Poor Greg. Is Lindsay listening? I hope Paris is not. Unlike Lindsay, Paris has no talent. She is simply a parasite.

    Be careful on prescription pills. I recently hurt my neck and it was so bad I walked into the ER. Soon my world was filled with prescription pills. It amazes me how hooked I got. I woke up and knew these pills were dangerous and threw them down the toilet. Dangerous things they are. many people OD because of them

    Good comment Heather, thoughts about being missed maybe but the idiot died from an overdose of drugs…..some never learn and they seal their fate, no crying over spilt milk



  21. 21

    VERY, VERY SAD. SUCH AN ACCOMPLISHED COMEDIAN. A HARVARD LAW GRADUATE. WILL BE MISSED. R.I.P. GREG GIRALDO.



  22. 22

    Yes another "accidental" overdose. "Hmm, it says on the label to take no more than 2 pills. I think I will "accidentally" take 20". Amazing how the media always covers for anyone even remotely famous.



  23. 23

    He was so funny; the Roasts won't be the same…RIP!

    What this country needs is a mandatory course in practical living , balancing check book , applying for credit , draft a budget and how to take prescription meds ~



  29. 29

    First Robert Schimmel now Greg. Yet, Carrot Top is alive and kicking and probably in his best health ever. Go figure

  37. 37

    Even if it was because of drugs, it's sad…Jesus…people have no hearts…I hope someone says oh well when you die…o, nevermind, no one knows who you are… RIP greg…that's a shame…



  38. 38

    Condolences to his family and friends. How many more people have to die from "accidental" overdoses on prescription medications till patients and doctors will start looking into alternatives to better living thru chemistry. There are alternatives and if you think you've tried everything…you haven't. I'm not a Scientologist, worked closely with MDs for 16 years, and am not totally against prescripton pharmaceuticals. This totally sucks.

    I really hope the heartless people on here that have posted some really cruel shit like you Heatherisonfire , The up kid , lincoln1 and Chuckkurt know that cruel and stupid usually go together - someone died accidentally and all you can do is judge and laugh at a very accomplished persons demise - I don't know what is wrong with you guys but I'll tell you what - you are clearly shitty unddereducated worthless assholes and I hope you get your's and the video goes viral so we can all see you win your Darwin you hopeless FUCKERS

    Re: the_up_kid

    It was an accident - it doesn't take much with certain drugs - and to be honest you are sorry - a sorry excuse for a human as you lack comppasion



  41. 41

    where are the comments



  42. 42

    Bye Bye :D



  43. 43

    I don't know how people can be so heartless as to say he deserved it because he was on drugs. No one chooses to become addicted to prescription drugs and once you are addicted, it's hard to stop. It's a flaw us humans have and the it's unfortunate that there isn't anything we can do to prevent it.

    Though, I'm not even entirely certain he was an addict. There haven't been prior indications (to my knowledge) that he was. Even though you OD, it doesn't mean you're an addict. I actually overdosed on my prescription medications because I was in so much pain that I just couldn't wait until the next dose and just took too much. In hindsight, of course that was stupid, but pain is pain.

    Thank you for the voice of reason - people are far to quick to judge - But for the Grace of God Right ?

    Re: HeatherIsOnFire
    I hope you are.

    Anyone who could say something so cruel about somebody's death clearly doesn't have a heart. He's not a statue, he's a person. His mother had to bury him, do you have any idea how hard that must have been?
