R.I.P Greg Giraldo, You Sick, Hilarious Bastard

30 Sep

Comedian, Greg Girlado died today at the ripe age of 44 after being hospitalized five days ago for an accidental overdose.

I didn’t really know much about the guy besides the fact he was pretty much the one and only person on the Comedy Central Roast’s worth watching. That and the Jewish guy…Anyway.

According to Wikipedia:

Before becoming a comedian, Giraldo worked as a lawyer, having graduated from Harvard Law School. Giraldo spent less than a year as an associate for Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom before deciding to change his occupation. Despite his prior career, Giraldo rejected that persona and very rarely discussed his days as a lawyer.

According to me, that’s fucking impressive. Skadden Arps lawyer to standup comedian? Well played, sir.
