R.I.P Greg Giraldo

Someone told me Giraldo died I thought they meant Geraldo and I was all, "WHEW, FINALLY" and then they said, no, Greg Giraldo and then I was like, who?

Seeing his picture (I had to google him) I vaguely recall him reading from a hastily scrawled piece of paper at a couple of those awful Comedy Central Roasts (see Dean Martin's series for examples of how to do a roast properly).

RIP but really, who was this guy again?

Just a standup comedian. Not super big. He recently did the roast of David Hasselhoff and ripped everyone a new asshole... Check it out if you haven't seen it.

I find those roasts hilarious and him & Jeff Ross ALWAYS deliver the goods...can't speak for anything else he's done but man, those roasts are laugh attack after laugh attack

In the world of stand-up and to the people who are seriously into stand-up, this guy, Greg Giraldo was huge! Most definitely a comedians comedian and was sure as hell one of the funniest, sharp and quick witted comics out there.

Wow, a shocker. Total loss to the stand up comedy world. I just learned who this guy was last month, when I basically wasted away a rainy Sunday watching a marathon of Celebrity Roasts on the Comedy channel. He had me in tears a few times. Sad to lose his jokes so soon.

RIP.

lol at the foreskin like a circus tent joke!

a friend of mine interviewed Greg Giraldo in May 2009 and reposted the interview on his blog.
i will admit, i found the interview to be hugely depressing. clearly he was an unhappy guy.
although i don't know if *any* stand-up comics are well adjusted people.

From what I heard in the past stand-up comedians are usually the saddest people on earth, they get their joy out of making people laugh. Go figure.

Interesting that it is being reported as a prescription drug overdose. I was under the impression that most prescription opiate deaths these days qualified as "natural causes"

A tribute show was put together for him recently. Well worth a watch. He was great :(

Also, his Hasselhoff roast segment is epic. The guy had such a strong, consistent, rapid-fire delivery.
