May, who had an ongoing show at Harrah's Las Vegas, was scheduled to perform at the Renaissance Theatre in Mansfield, Ohio on October 13.

The comedian, known for his television appearances on Inside Amy Schumer, had been battling pneumonia for six weeks and died of cardiac arrest, a spokesperson confirmed toThe Hollywood Reporter.

May came in second place on "Last Comic Standing" in 2003. His body was found at his home in Las Vegas, according to the statement.

The first, Girth of a Nation was released in 2006, Prime Cut in 2007, Austin-tatious in 2008 and Too Big To Ignore in 2012.


Stand-up star Larry The Cable Guy wrote: 'You my friend were one of the nicest and kindest out there'.

"I'm at a loss for words to hear about the passing of comedian Ralfie May", he tweeted.

TMZ says in 2015, he and his wife Lahna Turner, also a comedian, filed for divorce. "He was a friend to many and a father of 2 lovely children".

The split led to a bitter custody battle over their two kids, April June May and August James May.
