It’s been said thousands of times in the last 12 or so hours and I can only agree with the masses. The world is short of another gut-busting comedian with the passing of Greg Giraldo. Comedy Central’s Roasts will never EVER be the same.
TMZ’s website listed 17 quotes from Hollywood notables in comedy in their reaction to Giraldo’s death. Of the 17 quotes, none were from the contestants or fellow judges from season 7 of Last Comic Standing. The season aired this past summer and it was a treat to see and hear Giraldo every week.
In today’s social media world, it is not uncommon for a user to view celebrity reactions to major events via sites such as twitter. After reading those 17 quotes on TMZ, I raised an eyebrow in what the reactions may be of everyone involved in the recent NBC show.
In case you were also curious, I compiled the tweets of the comedians* involved in Last Comic Standing, season 7 in reaction to Giraldo’s passing:
* Missing comedians either don’t have a twitter account or haven’t tweeted about Giraldo yet.
