[October 01, 2010]  NEW YORK (AP) -- Greg Giraldo (juhr-AHL'-doh), a stand-up comedian who specialized in rants and insult-filled roasts, has died at age 44.

Authorities say Giraldo died Wednesday at the Robert Wood Johnson Hospital in New Brunswick, N.J., after being hospitalized days earlier. New Brunswick police Lt. J.T. Miller says officers found Giraldo in his room at the Hyatt New Brunswick on Saturday night.

The Home News Tribune of East Brunswick reported that Giraldo had suffered a drug overdose. It cited New Brunswick police.

Messages left with Giraldo's managers and agent weren't immediately returned Thursday.
