Gilbert Gottfried

Roasts Greg Giraldo --

Too Soon?!

9/29/2010 8:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Just hours after Greg Giraldo passed away, one of his former Roast-mates -- Gilbert Gottfried -- was already making a joke out of the situation ... but did he go too far?!

Earlier today, Gottfried went to his Twitter page and wrote, "If Greg Giraldo is cremated, will that be the 'Greg Giraldo Roast'?"

We spoke to Gilbert about the tweet ... who told us he has problems expressing his emotions -- but noted, "Greg can't say anything about it now ... I'm not worried about him calling and complaining."

So we gotta ask ...

Greg was a comedian and roasts celebs. I'm sure he would 100% approve of this.

Gottfried is famous for doing jokes "too soon", but I think this is a fraternity of comedians thing -- sending him out with a joke.

Greg would have laughed at it. It's probably fitting that Gilbert honoured his friend with a joke.

He is a comedian for Christ's sake.Do you think he would want us to cry or laugh? Get over yourself and go cry into your pillow for while. I expect nothing less from Gilbert.

He's a stand up comedian. In the world of stand up comedy there is no such thing as "too soon."

I'm sure that's how Greg woulda wanted it. He was a comedian, you take a ****ty situation and you make people laugh and feel better. The show must go on.

I don't think there is a better way to honor a stand-up comic than to tell a joke at their expense "too soon." Maybe horrible for an accountant or a dentist but 100% appropriate for a comic.

Greg Giraldo was notrious for making "jokes too soon" Gilbert, ****ing epic, this is coming from the same guy who had enough balls to crack a 9-11 joke at the hefner roast. It's never too soon, Greg would have done the same.
