Greg Giraldo is an American stand-up comedian, television personality, insult comic and former lawyer born and raised in Queen’s, New York. He is the oldest son of immigrant parents from Colombia and Spain and was raised Roman Catholic. From early on, he excelled academically and was selected to attend Camp Rising Sun, the Louis August Jonas Foundation's international summer scholarship program. Giraldo attended Columbia University. Before becoming a comedian, Giraldo worked as a lawyer, having graduated from Harvard Law School. Giraldo spent less than a year as an associate with a law practice before deciding that the job wasn't for him. The law’s loss was undoubtedly comedy’s gain. STORY Greg Giraldo is one of the hottest comics in the USA. Socially provocative and yet broadly funny, Greg has become one of the most versatile and highly entertaining comics working today. Greg is one of the premiere comics consistently featured on Comedy Central and has become one of the faces of the network. Along with appearing on LAST LAUGH on numerous occasions and hosting Friday Night Stand-Up for the network, he is most known for being the top roaster on the Comedy Central Roasts. He has roasted such celebrities as Larry the Cable Guy, Bob Saget, William Shatner, Flavor Flav and Pamela Anderson. He also most recently appeared on Comedy Central’s Root of All Evil and The Gong Show. In the past he was a regular panelist on Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, and has had two half hour comedy specials, Comedy Central Presents…Greg Giraldo, air on the network. He is also currently developing an hour special for the network. Greg has also frequently appeared on late night TV. Greg also has performed multiple times on Late Show with David Letterman (CBS), and he has been also a guest on Late Night with Conan O’ Brien (NBC) a dozen times.

The late Greg Giraldo finally got his comedy special. Anyone familiar with the Comedy Central roasts would expect him to be his usual astute, incisive and witty self. For the most part you'd be right; his social commentaries and the great way in which he sets up and delivers his punchlines are proof enough of his talent. It's just that I remember him being way more incisive with his disections in past appearances (the aforementioned roasts and on Comedy Central Presents..). It's no secret he wasn't as prolific as he deserved to be, and this special may have been his one chance to make a name for himself. It's sad then that he seems to have toned down his act somewhat for fear of jeopordising his future. He remains funny though, and for a comedian that's where it counts.
