He skillfully tricks you into believing he's just your average comedian whose performance is ridden with cliche narratives of the American cultural landscape. But you'll soon find you've been fooled. I find the more aware a comedian, the better he is. He must take risks with the audience. Sometimes he must trust that his audience is not vanilla but again we're not sick pervs either. With awareness of this, Giraldo is able to become several great comedians at once with material that is crude (Stanhope) and political (Maher, Stewart). He also does numerous pieces that make fun of our use of language, reminiscent of the late Carlin. Nevertheless Giraldo is not just a mish-mesh of other comedians, he masterly weaves everything in a special way. Each joke is not random, he's telling a story that hopefully should vibrate with the younger generations.

at first, I was skeptical bout this release. having only seen Greg when he was roasting someone. but after watching this dvd. I was relieved to see that Greg Girado has a presence on stage. I'm not going to give out any jokes because that would just be mean. but check it out. you will laugh your ass off.

Many of the philosophers of our day are comedians, and Greg Giraldo proves the truth in this statement. Admittedly, some of his material can be a little blue or might seem a bit irreverent, but this just gives his material the edge that lets you know it was created from real experiences. Like any good book or piece of art, each time you come back to it, with more maturity, there is something new to appreciate. Every piece of work Greg has done that I've seen, way back to his first Comedy Central work has been great in this way, and "Midlife Vices" keeps this tradition going. I highly recommend this product.

When it comes to great standup comedians, you probably won't hear the name Greg Giraldo. In his short career, Midlife Vices was his only "official" one hour special. He also recorded a comedy album entitled Good Day To Cross A River, but this is the only one that exists in both DVD and CD form. Greg Giraldo died on September 29, 2010 and the world lost one of its most talented, underrated comedians. Many comedians are considered underrated and are taken too soon, but some (such as Bill Hicks) find their audience after their death. It's been over a year since Giraldo's untimely demise at the age of 44 and his talent and brilliance has yet to be rightfully acknowledged.

Giraldo is most known for his work on the Comedy Central Roasts. This platform is where most people became acquainted with him and the reason why many obituaries referred to him as an "insult comic." Giraldo was certainly well-versed in insult comedy and his witty, offensive jabs at Jeff Foxworthy, Pamela Anderson, William Shatner, Flavor Flav, Bob Saget, Larry the Cable Guy, Joan Rivers, and David Hasselhoff are some of the funniest five minute clips you could hope to find. His final Roast appearance was on the Comedy Central Roast of David Hasselhoff and what a way to go out that was. Closing that roast, his five minutes of destroying everyone on that dais is some of the most bitingly funny five minutes I've ever had the pleasure of seeing. While his presence and, more importantly, his jokes elevated those specials and a simple youtube search of his appearances will make you wish you could hire him to insult people you don't like, it's unfortunate that his legacy has been mostly relegated to those appearances.

Some of his political stuff went from being goofy when he performed it to actually topical as I watch it now.

How about this:

Obama said he had to make a deal with his wife to stop smoking so she would let him run for president.

GG: If that were true then how could he possibly negotiate with rogue nations, etc. etc.

LMAO

I gave this DVD to my teenage son as a gift, and watched it with him a couple of weeks ago. What a talented man this Greg Giraldo was - and what a shame that he is dead at such a young age. This was one of the funniest, edgiest stand-up routines I've ever seen in my life. I recommend it to anyone who is NOT a total fuddy-dud!

Love this album. Some people argue that isn't great because of lack of bonus features but I still think the DVD is completely worth it. His jokes are great and the execution is awesome. Like one of the other reviews said, check it out you will laugh your ass off.

As of this writing, all that is known about Greg Giraldo's death is that he accidentally overdosed on what are said to have been prescription drugs. With that in mind, watching his dvds and listening to his cds now, of course, have lost a bit of their humor - why does this end seem to be so common for funnymen? Whether it's Belushi, Bruce, (a little bit more slowly but no less deadly) Pryor, the list goes on and on. Maybe these new age philosophers have to be medicated to be able to talk about the kind of things they have to talk about, night after night. I don't know, but it's a sick, sad world out there, and Greg's humor addressed it, more often than not. It may not have been as legend making as Lenny Bruce's or Richard Pryor's yet - whereas Lenny Bruce and Richard Pryor both roared onto the stage and howled their way through routines that left you wondering whether you'd just had a religious experience, Greg tended to saunter onstage, a little wired (but surely on nothing worse than coffee and cigarettes, right?), and basically announce, "Okay, @#!$%!s,let's see who gets on whose nerves, first, okay?", and then he'd stand there and make you feel like an idiot for believing so much of what we do is important to the grand scheme of Things, and you'd sit there going, "Yeah, we are all a-holes!" -, but he was on his way with a fanbase of individuals who wanted to hear just how screwed up a country (America) had to be to be able to trivialize Death by throwing it into the title of a dessert, and noting that our country will never be able to make do with compact cars because we won't get off our fat asses and exercise, and therefore, the average American family will not fit into a compact car at one time.Read more ›
