After the performance at the Stress Factory in New Brunswick, NJ on September 24 -- Greg took photos with several fans ... all of whom told us he couldn't have been nicer.

The following night, Greg was rushed to a local hospital from an overdose on pills.  He passed away 5 days later.

All you people you say you've never heard of him and then go on to bash him are idiots. Just because you're ignorant, doesn't make you right.

The guy was hysterical. He was also a genius (he had a Harvard Law degree). Every time he was on a show's panel I knew it would be good.

Yeah, he did it to himself and it was stupid, but it's a huge loss. And no, you can't really hear what he's saying in this video, but you can hear how loud they're all laughing.

R.I.P.

Considering that from the above photo, he looks like Eli Roth, I'm not suprised that he was doing drugs.

Not at all funny, even if the tape was better and you might actually hear what he was blathering. No loss to comedy, maybe his family misses him but audiences won't...another doper loser. What drugs was he doing, maybe we could give some to Gilbert Gottfried, Oksana, Lindsay, Paris and a few other obnoxious losers.

I was there at this very show. I posted my videos of this show on YouTube, but the Stress Factory removed them after he was hospitalized. I asked TMZ if they wanted them, but they never got back to me.

I don't think anyone called him a comic genius until after he died. He didn't even make Comedy Central's list of 100 top comics. Apparently even Gallagher the watermelon comic and Jay Mohr (who does he blow to get work) are funnier than Greg. They both made the list.

To all of you nasty, rude, disrespectful A**holes out there bagging on this guy.....will YOU ever be notice for what you did in life? Death, no matter the means, is always tragic for those left behind. Have some class.

I wonder how it went from critical but stable condition to pulling the plug and death. What happened after he was stable? And yes, what was the drug? And how many does one take and call it an accident instead of a high!

There appears to be a Facebook page for donations for Greg Giraldo's kids and his comic friends are asking people to donate via Twitter. I find this weird. Giraldo made very good money as a performer (a few million at least) and his successful friends, who are making millions in entertainment are asking folks to donate to the Giraldo family? I thought he was hilarious and very underrated but if they love him so much why don't they support his family? Did he not have life insurance?
People are unemployed, losing their homes and are destitute and these millionaires are asking people to help another well off dude's family? Nice perspective.

I'll donate to the "This Bud's for You" suicide by alcohol fund. 40% of suicides involve alcohol.
