Ralphie May, February 17, 1972 - October 6, 2017

Comedian Ralphie May has died at 45, his representative, Stacey Pokluda. His body was found Friday morning at a private residence in Las Vegas, where he had a residency at Harrah's Las Vegas Hotel and Casino.

Pokluda said May had performed there Thursday night after having had to cancel several dates to recover from pneumonia, which had plagued him for weeks. She noted his cause of death was cardiac arrest. In the last two weeks, rock icon Tom Petty and Playboy founder Hugh Hefner both died as a result of cardiac arrest.

I will never understand why people care when certain celebrities die while they might impact peoples lives doing what they do that got them famous their deaths are usually related to the stupid things they do/did, his death is on a similar level of Carrie Fisher to me. Yes the morbidly obese guy is on the same level of the coke head to me.

Sorry to hear that he's dead. Sincerely.

Never liked his material. Yelling a bunch of racist and obscene things that make drunk people laugh is easy mode for comedy. He had no real insight. No unique take on the issues. He just yelled a lot. He acted like Kinison, without Sam's attention to detail. He gained fame on a reality show that celebrated hacks and edited the laughs out of better comic's sets to look like they were bombing. He broke no ground except the ground he walked on.

Yes that was a fat joke, and I'm not a thin man. I'm good with that. Comedy.

RiP just the same. I'd rather he sucked for another 40 years than hear of his passing.

I saw him once, like 10 years ago while he was still with the Jew broad (His words, not mine.)
