Editorial Reviews

Giraldo is one of the hottest comics in the country, socially provocative yet broadly funny. He's well-known for his stint as a regular panelist on Comedy Central's "Tough Crowd With Colin Quinn". He regularly contributes a "rant" segment to "Last Call With Carson Daly". Both of his half our stand-up specials, "Comedy Central Presents: Greg Giraldo" are currently airing on Comedy Central. He's also performed on Letterman and Conan, and now hosts "Stand-Up Nation" Friday nights on Comedy Central. This debut contains over an hour of his best material.

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Gem from One of the Most Underrated Comics Ever January 12, 2012
Format:Audio CD
In his much too brief career, comedian Greg Giraldo was known almost exclusively for his appearances on the Comedy Central roasts. Beginning in 2005, Giraldo participated in the roasts of Jeff Foxworthy, Pamela Anderson, William Shatner, Flavor Flav, Bob Saget, Larry the Cable Guy, Joan Rivers, and David Hasselhoff. The latter, his final appearance, is what caught my attention. It's one of the most hilarious, scathing five minutes I've ever had the pleasure of viewing and it served as the catalyst for my interest in what else Giraldo had to offer as a comedian. Tragically, Greg Giraldo died on September 29, 2010 and the void he has left is immeasurable.

Released in 2006, Good Day to Cross a River was his first recorded album of material. He recorded only one more special, Midlife Vices, three years later and that is available on both CD and DVD. While the roasts display Giraldo's talent for writing scathing, hilarious insults and delivering with them with perfect comedic timing, these two specials paint a more vivid portrait of the talented comedic force he was. A Harvard graduate and retired lawyer, Giraldo was not only a very funny man, but a very intelligent one who brought both of these qualities to prominence in his material. The greatest stand-up comedians do more than make you laugh; they make you think. Giraldo's material does both and, by perfectly blending intelligence and vulgarity, the comedy he created was widely accessible to a broad spectrum of people. Aside from that, his timing, enthusiasm, and ability were unmatched by his contemporaries. It is unfathomable that he never achieved substantial popularity in his lifetime.

4.0 out of 5 stars very funny February 5, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
not as well known as some of the other top comedians, greg giraldo is way funnier than any of them. his "as a matter of fact" delivery of punchlines always gets me laughing as there seem to be 2 jokes delivered with only a single punchline.
He mixes well topics that everyone else jokes about along with some that you never hear. Very funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! December 17, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is so good you'll wet your pants laughing. Giraldo is a little rough on marital relationships, so I might not lend this to a friend who's going through some marriage difficulties (which I did), but for those of us who can handle a little (oh-so-true) relationship humor, Greg Giraldo is amazing. You will want to purchase one for yourself, AND all of your sick friends who can appreciate great stand-up. If you saw Comedy Central's Last Laugh 2006 you'll have an idea of what you're getting in to. Now go for it!

If you like Comedy Central's roastings, You will love this CD. Mr. Giraldo will have you laughing from begining to end. I purchased two David Cross dvd's and then swore I would never purchase another comics disc ever again. Im so glad I went back on my word. Greg is the Greatest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mourning Another Huge Loss October 7, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Greg Giraldo passed away this year and it's a major blow to comedy. If you've seen him on the Comedy Central Roasts, he's always the funniest and most creative roaster, in my opinion. They kid him about being an unknown and it's a shame because he deserved much wider acclaim and success. This CD along with "Midlife Vices" are the best of Greg Giraldo's talent. He's very funny, witty, creative, and a natural speaker. Good standup comics make it look and sound like they're being spontaneous and Giraldo was a master of this. A bit dirty, crude, and offensive but not nearly as much as others and at least he's funny and not using those categories for shock value alone. His laments about aging are so right on and hilarious. My wife isn't a standup fan but I had her listen to this while we were flying someplace and she attracted attention with her laughter. If you need a good laugh, buy this CD or MP3 download.
Thanks for the laughs and uplift, Greg.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Day To Cross A River-Comedy CD May 15, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a Great CD! It's like watching Greg "Live"-he is so damn funny & witty. There will never be another comedian quite like him-he definitely is "One of a Kind" & will be greatly missed. I plan on getting all of his "roasts" on DVD-he really was awesome when he did those roasts & always came up with new material. He was a natural when it came to comedy-RIP GREG WE LOVE YOU MAN!

5.0 out of 5 stars Insanely Hilarious June 8, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I've been a huge Greg Giraldo fan for years. When I heard he was releasing a CD I went Fu**ing nuts. This CD is all of his standup material, however, its still hilarious. His observations and use of stories from the news are hilarious. The funniest tracks are Terrorism, Dyslexia, Katrina, and Brokeback mountain. Those are my faves, however teh entire CD is great, buy and dont look back, you'll be glad you did.
