Comedian Ralphie May dies at 45

Comedian Ralphie May has died at the age of 45 according to TMZ

May died of cardiac arrest. He had been battling pneumonia the past six weeks but he kept performing, the site reported. His rep told TMZ that someone in the residence discovered his body.

His stand-up comedy career broke through when he finished second on "Last Comic Standing" in 2003.

May's "No Apologies" show was at Harrah's Las Vegas where he had just performed Thursday night.

He wrote about the tour on his site:

"I’ve been doing comedy for almost 28 years and to have a show on the Vegas Strip is a real honor. Harrah’s and I are gonna put together a hilarious, no-holds-barred comedy show. We wanted it to be a late night, dirty, filthy show where nothing is off limits. With that said, up front, you know me, I’ll tell it like it is, Jack! And I’ll have no apologies.

"See you in Vegas. Let’s have some laughs then hit the tables."
