    He's not a robit or a superhero, so not surprising.

    Yeah, well he's not a robit or a supe... yeah you get the idea.

    Giraldo was one of the best, that's sad sad news.

    I seriously couldn't believe this. So young. I thought he was pretty damn hilarious. He did a couple of the comedy central roasts, didn't he?

    Yeah, he was as instrumental in keeping them going as Jeff Ross. Comedy Central gave him a lot of play the last few years actually, he got to do a few episodes of Root of All Evil, that Lewis Black/courtroom style show.

    That really sucks. When I think of Comedy Central, he was always one of the comedians I'd think of first. RIP dude.

    p.s. Why couldn't it have been Dane Cook? I keed, I keed.

    Very sad news.

    Indeed. You have to respect anyone who graduated from Harvard Law then rejected the profession after a year working for a firm.

    Hilarious.

    I must admit that I was absolutely shocked today to hear Greg Giraldo described as a 'comedian'. Unless, by virtue of being completely unfunny, he had been doing an ironic meta-commentary intended to make us examine our antiquated notions of 'comedy'.

    Snark aside, it is sad that he passed away, though.

    Didn't find him funny at all, but was shocked and saddened to hear he passed. RIP Giraldo.

    Shit, really? Damn that sucks :( 

    So many people in this world who need to be wiped off the face of the Earth, but people I actually like and have respect for end up dying. This world is fucked up.

    Talk about Irony!!!! A guy who made a living of roasting other people about their demons whether it be alcohol or drugs finally succumbs to his own demons in the form of drugs. Ironic!!! He will be missed, he was quite funny, R.I.P!

    What the hell is a robit?


    ...and why would he have to be a superhero or a 'robit' for me to know who he is? I don't pay attention to comedians much so that is why I don't know who he is.

    I am guessing you were being sarcastic but I answered, anyways, lol. Still, what the hell is a robit?

    Why am I not surprised?

    This whole "celebrity death by drug overdose" thing is just starting to get annoying now.
