NEW YORK, March 7 (UPI) -- Jon Stewart, Conan O'Brien and Sarah Silverman are among those to appear in a TV tribute to late U.S. comedian Greg Giraldo, Comedy Central said.

Giraldo, 44, died last September, several days after overdosing on prescription medication.

Also to appear on "Give It Up For Greg Giraldo" are Jim Gaffigan, Colin Quinn, Dave Attell and Lewis Black.

To air March 18, the program "illuminates and celebrates the life of a modern hero, a groundbreaking comedic voice and family member who is sorely missed," the cable television network said in a news release Monday.

"Featuring never-before-aired, behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the late comedian himself, 'Give It Up for Greg Giraldo' takes viewers through career highlights from roasts, stand-up specials, pilots and numerous television and live appearances," the network said. "Giraldo's tragic passing has had an immeasurable impact on his fellow comedians and fans alike."
