The comedy world lost a great guy yesterday, rest in laughter Greg Giraldo. He was not only a funny guy but he seemed like a genuinely good person. As a judge on Last Comic Standing he seemed to always be very supportive of all the contestants and was cautious not to discourage the ‘comics’, no matter how bad they were.
A lot of people don’t know this but he was wicked smart. He was a graduate from Columbia University and he attended Harvard Law School before deciding to drop out and concentrate on becoming a comic. A very funny and very smart guy with a smart mouth, trust me you didn’t want to heckle this guy. I’m not going to go on and on about him but rather let his comedy do the talking.
Sucks we keep losing such great talent, you’ll be missed Greg Giraldo. The Comedy Central roasts wont be the same.
