  • Ralphie May Cause of Death

COMEDIAN Ralphie May has died. Earlier Friday morning, his body was found at a private residence in Las Vegas, his manager told The Hollywood Reporter.

Comedian Ralphie May, whose rose to fame on TV's "Last Comic Standing", died Friday after a heart attack.

The cause of death has not been reported. His career took off after that, as May, who was born in Tennessee and raised in Arkansas, parlayed his Southern charm into stand-up dates across the county, as well as appearances on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" and "The Wayne Brady Show". He starred in his first Comedy Central special, "Girth of a Nation", in 2006, before releasing "Prime Cut" (2007), "Austin-tatious" (2008) and "Too Big to Ignore" (2012) in subsequent years.

Dane Cook was one of the first to express his grief, tweeting, "Whoa. man. this sucks". "Ralphie was a good guy & very amusing person. Condolences to his family & fans".

Gabriel Iglesias shared his heartbreak after learning of the loss of his friend as well.

TMZ says in 2015, he and his wife Lahna Turner, also a comedian, filed for divorce.

The split led to a bitter custody battle over their two kids, April June May and August James May.

He was then required to have monitored visitation with the children, something the documents claim made him become more "aggressive".
