Greg Giraldo in Critical Condition After Overdose

by at .

Last Comic Standing judge Greg Girando reportedly overdosed on prescription drugs and was taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, N.J.

This happened Saturday, ironically just hours after he performed at a rally to mark National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month, the New York Post reports.

Giraldo was found unresponsive during a party at his hotel in East Brunswick, where the comedian performed a string of shows at the Stress Factory comedy club.

Like fellow comedian Artie Lange, who also battled substance abuse issues, Greg Giraldo has appeared on the Howard Stern show and Comedy Central roasts.

He is believed to be in stable but critical condition. Several sources are calling the father of three's overdose accidental. Here's wishing him a speedy, full recovery.
