Comedian Greg Giraldo, a judge on "Last Comic Standing" and a regular on Comedy Central's celebrity roasts, died Wednesday, days after a drug overdose, TMZ reported, citing an unnamed source close to Giraldo.

Sources have said the overdose was not intentional and involved prescription drugs.

Paramedics tried to resuscitate an unconscious Giraldo on Saturday after what sources said was a wild party in his room at the Hilton East Brunswick in New Jersey, the New York Post reported.

Giraldo, a recovering alcoholic since 2005, had been staying at the hotel while performing a four-night gig at the Stress Factory in New Brunswick.
