Greg Giraldo Dies Of An Overdose!

I’ve only seen Greg Giraldo on a Comedy Central Roast once. But,he was pretty funny. It’s too bad that we won’t be privy to his raunchy brand of humor any longer. Giraldo has passed away from an prescription pill overdose. Another celebrity dies from taking too many prescribed pills. Will this scenario ever come to an end?

Here’s more from MTV:

“Comedian Greg Giraldo died Wednesday (September 29) at age 44 from a reportedly accidental prescription-drug overdose. Giraldo had been hospitalized in New Brunswick, New Jersey after he overdosed on prescription pills last weekend. According to TMZ, the overdose was not a suicide attempt.

Giraldo reportedly collapsed Saturday evening in his hotel room in New Jersey, where he was performing at a club. He was discovered by friends after he failed to show up for his scheduled performance. He was rushed to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick.

Jim Norton confirmed the news via Twitter, including a picture with his fellow comedian: “Greg Giraldo passed away today. This is the last photo of us together, taken June 28 at Noam’s wedding. RIP buddy.”

A source close to Giraldo told TMZ: “Greg passed away today at the hospital in New Brunswick as a result of an accidental overdose. His family was by his side.”

The Giraldo family’s plans for a memorial service will reportedly be made public when they become available.

Giraldo was best known for his celebrity roast appearances and was a frequent guest on “The Late Show With David Letterman,” “Late Night With Conan O’Brian” and “The Howard Stern Show.” He had also been a judge on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” and appeared as a panelist on Jerry Seinfeld’s “The Marriage Ref.” (End of Excerpt) Read the rest here.

David Letterman:He Calls It Like He Sees It! Rush Limbaugh Is A Serious Bonehead!

David Letterman has more street cred than Michael Steele could ever dream of having! He’s not afraid of Rush Limbaugh! The big,tall man of Steele was reduced to a whimpering baby mouse by Limbaugh! Did you hear about Steele’s pathetic apology to Rush Limbaugh? Since when did a belligerent, former drug addict command this much respect? Is this what our society has come to?

Can you believe how many grown men have been reduced to mice by Rush Limbaugh? It’s really astonishing! Here’s more on one man who isn’t bending over for Limbaugh from The Huffington Post:

David Letterman had CBS News anchor Katie Couric doubled over with laughter when he referred to Rush Limbaugh as a “bonehead” and described his shirt-unbuttoned appearance at the recent CPAC conference as that of an “East European gangster.”

Though Couric didn’t take the bait during her guest appearance on Monday night, she did admit to feeling uncomfortable to hear the words Rush Limbaugh and flesh in the same sentence and joked with Letterman,

“So much for my interview with Rush.”(End of Excerpt)Read the rest here.
