That's really sad. He was hilarious and easily my favorite judge on LCS. I knew he had an overdose, but I didnt think he wasnt going ot make it. What the hell did he overdose on?

RIP.

I don't know. They said it was an accident, and with 4 kids and a wife, and I certainly hope so.
Here a group of clips from him at Roasts -

This is sad, but I'm actually really kind of excited for the "too soon?" jokes about his death at whatever the next roast is.

You can always count on Gilbert Gottfried.

RIP Greg Giraldo. Too bad it couldn't have been Geraldo instead.

Sad news, Giraldo was a very witty guy. Hats of too Gottfried for that Twitter comment. He was obviously just saying it in rememberance of the guy; that's what Giraldo was all about, no comment was too brash.

On Hasselhoff's roast, Giraldo's comment about Gary Coleman, haha, was a prime example.

RIP.

I have loved Greg Giraldo since Tough Crowd. I've seen him twice. Totally unrelenting with his jokes.

I didn't read Gilbert's tweet, but if it was inappropriate is what probably appropriate.

Anyway Schimmel, now this guy? These were two of the best I ever got to see live.

"If Greg Giraldo is cremated, will that be the "Greg Giraldo Roast"?

(And then TMZ said this)

We spoke to Gilbert about the tweet ... who told us he has problems expressing his emotions -- but noted, "Greg can't say anything about it now ... I'm not worried about him calling and complaining."
