After enduring a massive heart attack, the 'Last Comic Standing' finalist died on Sunday night, March 6.

U.S. comedian Mike DeStefano has died after suffering a massive heart attack on Sunday night March 6. The funnyman shot to fame in America last year when he was among the finalists of reality TV contest "Last Comic Standing". TMZ.com reports DeStefano was a former heroin addict, who had been clean for 11 years. Following his TV success last year, he often performed at prisons and rehab centers for free.

Weeks ago on his last performance in Manhattan, he wrote on his Web site, "I might die tomorrow and you won't get a chance to see my show, 'Drugs, Disease and Death: A Comedy by Mike DeStefano.' Then you'll feel bad. Let's avoid all that and buy tickets.' "
