Comedian Mike DeStefano has passed away following a heart attack on Sunday Punchline Magazine reports, and it is an enormous loss for the comedy community.
Much of the world got its first taste of DeStefano's brutally honest comedy when he placed fourth on Season 7 of "Last Comic Standing."

He will be remembered for his fierce humanity on stage and his genuine kindness off of it.
