Biography

Greg Giraldo (1965-2010) was an American stand-up comedian, based in New York. Before becoming a comedian, Giraldo, a Regis High School, Columbia University and Harvard Law School graduate, worked as a lawyer.
He was known for his distinct delivery and his skills in ranting, never allowing his rhythm to be broken. Giraldo had performed regularly at the Comedy Cellar in Manhattan. Giraldo was a regular panelist on Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn. He had been featured regularly on the Howard Stern radio program, and was a staple of Comedy Central’s annual Celebrity Roast. Additionally, he was the star of the short-lived Common Law and also starred in several pilots, including The Greg Giraldo Show and Gone Hollywood for Comedy Central.
The New York Times praised Giraldo as “a talented comedian with a winning personality.”
He was a regular guest on Comedy Central’s Celebrity Roasts.
Sadly, on 9/25/10, he overdosed on Rx medication, and passed away 5 days later.

    I hate this guy because he's way too damn funny. Rest in peace, bro. You only did two albums and you still became one of the greats.

    It's because he was a fucking genius that he never got huge. Same old story, generation after generation.

    Watched the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen and REALLY missed Greg. He was typically the opener, the opener this time around, Jon Lovitz. Salt in the wound.

    He was one of the all time best. Hilarious with an "I don't give a shit what you think" attitude. Best comedian at the Roast's. RIP

    "His tribute on Comedy Central was very good, I was telling my wife how surreal it was to see Nick Swardson crying. I think Greg is unfortunately one of those comics who had to die for people to wake up and realize what a genius he was, it's all too common. RIP" Completely agree..... he was the sharpest, most clever and imaginative with metaphors or analogies that proved his often caustic or controversial points with an irrepressible recognition of both how funny something was, and how unique his perspective was.

    Why did you have to die? You were hilarious and, in my opinion, the only credible judge on Last Comic Standing. Rest in Peace, my man.
