I first met Greg Giraldo when I was just starting out in stand-up, and was so impressed by how gracious and encouraging he was. He’s been one of my favorite comedians, and I had always planned to reverse engineer his first Comedy Central Presents show — it was technically perfect. Oh, and hilarious. (and not as angry as his more recent work.)
What I also loved about this guy is that even though he nailed a near perfect score on the LSAT and a cush job with a swanky NYC law firm, after his first stand-up performance, he quit his job the following day to pursue what he loved. RIP brother.
