May was a Tennessee-born comedian who rose to fame after appearing on the first season on NBC’s Last Comic Standing.

May died of cardiac arrest after battling pneumonia Friday night, his representative, Stacey Pokluda said.

Pokluda confirmed that May’s 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, Page Six reports.

She said May had performed there Thursday night after having had to cancel several dates to recover from pneumonia, which had plagued him for weeks.

Pokluda noted his cause of death was cardiac arrest, in which an electrical problem causes the heart to stop pumping completely. When that happens, oxygenated blood fails to reach the brain, lungs and other organs.

She also noted in her statement that May had just won the Casino Comedian of the Year award at the Global Gaming Expo.

Tributes immediately began to tour in on social media from the tight-knit comedy community.

May, who rose to fame after his 2003 “Last Comic Standing” win, was also seen on Comedy Central and Netflix along with his residency at Harrah’s Las Vegas, Page Six reported.

He left us entirely too soon — and we can only wonder where his comedy might have taken all of us. We send our love to his family, his fans, and all the comics who shared stages with him across the country.”

“We are heartbroken to announce the untimely death of our friend, Ralphie May,” his rep confirmed to Page Six on Friday. “Earlier this morning at a private residence in Las Vegas his body was discovered, cause of death is cardiac arrest.”
