Lampanelli:

Giraldo Would've Loved Gottfried Burn

10/4/2010 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lisa Lampanelli didn't think Gilbert Gottfried was out of line when he cracked a cremation joke about Greg Giraldo just hours after his death -- in fact, Lisa thinks Greg would've appreciated it.

Lisa -- who Greg endearingly referred to as a "Circus bear in a pant suit" -- spent lots of time exchanging insults with Giraldo at Roasts throughout the years ... and this weekend in NY, she told us, "You don't do the Roasts like we do without having a sense of humor about it."

When we asked about Gilbert's self-described emotional issues -- Lisa told us, "That's every comic ... we make jokes about the stuff we're about to cry about."

Check out the clip -- it's pretty good.

#3, Bruce...
seriously. I think you are sadly deluded that a book of myths holds truth that everyone should live by. but maybe you are right about something... I think YOU live in an abysmal pit, a pit of ignorance and superstition. and the part about people mourning for you? now you sound Muslim. you want people lamenting and wailing for you so that God can know that you were loved?
grow up.

I LOVE Lisa Lampanelli. She's hard core, but I like how she handled this situation. Comics are *******s to each other. It's all in fun. Quit crying "too soon". This is what they do!

Love Lisa, and agree that Greg would have laughed at GG's crack. Comedians have a bond that allows them to razz one another without it being personal. But I'll miss Greg's comedy, and was sorry to hear of his passing. :(
