'Marriage Ref' Star Raises $$$ for Greg Giraldo's Fam

6/30/2011 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Greg Giraldo had some pretty famous friends -- including Jeff Ross, Daniel Tosh and "Marriage Ref" host Tom Papa -- and last night, they all performed in L.A. to raise money for the late comic's kids. 063011_tom_papa_still



Papa -- who was pretty tight with Giraldo -- organized the "Big Time Comedy Show - A Giraldo Family Benefit."

According to the Huffington Post, all of the show's proceeds went to Giraldo's wife Maryann Giraldo and their four children.

Giraldo -- who was LEGENDARY on the Comedy Central "Roasts" -- died last year after overdosing on prescription medication.

Marriage Ref is a terrible show. Can't believe they actually brought it back and this guy is about as funny as cancer.

Very nice of them. So refreshing unlike typical hollywood narcissism. I am sure the family can really use the money.

Nice to see his friends helping out in the best way they can. I draw a lot of inspiration at http://www.rottenpuppets.com from being a Giraldo fan with his crass humor. It's a shame he went the way he did.

Famous?! I don’t know who any of those losers are. Plus I don’t think anyone is impressed by the host of some crappy reality show. They’re a dime a dozen.

If you don't know who these people are then you clearly aren't a true fan of comedy. SOme of the best comedians in the business. And good for them Greg's fmaily shouldn't have to suffer anymore than they already have. It's nice to see them getting some help from some famous friends.

Greg Giraldo is a real loss. Marriage Ref is a good, clean fun show. Papa is very funny and under-rated.

(PS. JFK Jr was murdered too!)

OooooNooo!    

He O.D.ed on drugs when he had a family to support--jerk. Hats off to Tosh and the rest for coming to the family's aid. People who do drug are selfish M.F.er's.

It is great a benefit was held. However, Greg Giraldo was divorced from Maryann. She was no longer his wife.
