I’m not sure how you “accidentally” overdose on prescription pills, but maybe Greg Giraldo can fill us in. Oh wait, never mind. He’s dead. TMZ reports:
Greg had been hospitalized in New Brunswick, NJ after he overdosed on prescription pills last weekend. A source said the overdose was not a suicide attempt. Giraldo was best known for his celebrity roast appearances. He had also been a judge on “Last Comic Standing.” A source close to Greg tells us, “Greg passed away today at the hospital in New Brunswick as a result of an accidental overdose. His family was by his side.” We’re told plans are being made for a public memorial service.
I never really got into this dude, but apparently a lot of people did so I guess it’s sad. I’m just wondering if he’s cremated can we call it a roast? Seems only reasonable.
