    Comedian Greg Giraldo Dies - He was just 44

    The world just lost some laughter. Comedian Greg Giraldo has died at the tender age of 44. The funnyman was hospitalized on Saturday after an accidental overdose in New Jersey, which was not thought to be a suicide attempt.

    Comedy Central released the following statement regarding Giraldo's passing: "The tragic news of Greg's passing hits us very, very hard. Greg has been a close member of the Comedy Central family for years, injecting his energy and wicked sense of humor into countless projects. The comedy community lost a brother today. Our thoughts are with his family."

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to Giraldo's family and friends, too. He will be sorely missed.
