Giraldo at Large

Giraldo at Large
Greg Giraldo has appeared countless times on both of the now-defunct Comedy Central series Root of All Evil (with Lewis Black) and Tough Crowd (with Colin Quinn) as well as every notable show on the late-night circuit. He has released stand-up specials and full-length comedy albums. He's even among the most brutal of Comedy Central's notorious celebrity-roasters. The last thing you might expect to hear about this member of cable television's semi-elite stable of potty-mouthed comics is that he's an Ivy League man — but he is. Giraldo received his undergraduate degree from Columbia and graduated with flying colors from Harvard Law School. For all the outrageous vulgarities and juvenile references, a discernible degree of social awareness and thoughtfulness exists in Giraldo's material. Sure, you might hear a — ahem — handful of dick jokes in his routine, but you'll likely walk away having learned a little something as well. Even from the dick jokes.
