Very sad. Guy was a hell of a comedian. Not sure how he let it get this far though being he's a Harvard grad who was an attorney at one of the most powerful law firms in the country before becoming a comedian. COmedy Central Roasts won't be the same. RIP.

Still never got a show either. I wonder if they will have a roast/funeral and if anyone will crack jokes about that like they did during the roasts.

Im not being cruel, sometimes thats how comedians cope. Remember Bill Murray's speech at Belushi's funeral.

This sucks. That dude was one of my fav. roasters. He had some funny ****. I thought his material was top notch and probably the best of all the roasters. I think if his delivery were a little better he couldve been legendary. IMHO, thats what kept him from getting a show.

He will be missed.

Him and Lampanelli were the only reasons the roasts kicked so much ***.

Ross and Gottfried

Forgot about Ross... he is funny as **** too. I can take or leave Gotfried... the voice is almost too annoying.

I cant stand Gottfried lol. Giraldo and Lampineli were the best two roasters IMO
