Comedian Greg Giraldo overdoses in hotel room
Our weekly overdose report is brought to you today by Greg Giraldo, a comedian whom you may best remember as a judge on Last Comic Standing. Seems he took a few too many prescription pills on Saturday, the New York Post says.
"It was an accidental overdose, and he is in critical condition," a source from his management company told the paper Monday. The comedian, who is a recovering alcoholic since 2005, was found by a friend in his room at the Hilton in East Brunswick, N.J., after a party. Paramedics had to resuscitate him before taking him to a hospital in the city.
TMZ adds that sources tell them it was not a suicide attempt, but it doesn't look very good for Giraldo. He was scheduled to perform at a nearby event for recovering substance abusers on Saturday.
