Ralphie May

Ralphie May, who parlayed a second-place finish on TV's "Last Comic Standing" in 2003 into TV and club appearances, died of cardiac arrest Oct. 6, 2017. The round-faced May was named casino comedian of the year at the Global Gaming Expo days before his death. He was booked through the rest of 2017 at Harrah's Las Vegas. He was 45.
