    if he's cremated, he'll finally be roasted.

    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.

    Very very sad this guy was fucking hilarious on the Roasts.

    RIP thank you for putting me in tears

    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.

    When it's my turn to go, this is how I want to leave. With 1 final rub and tug.

    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.


    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.

    That's what separates them from the rest of us.
    To be a good one you have to be a bit twisted. and just don't give a fuck !! :)

    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.

    My favourite is when he burned that fucking idiot Dennis Leary.

    His stand-up special Midlife Voices is hilarious also.
