Greg Giraldo

A Comedian’s Story

One of this century’s best comedians deserves a book. Learn Greg Giraldo’s story from those who knew him best. Many know Greg Giraldo’s work from Comedy Central roasts, late night television, and comedy clubs. However, few comedy fans have heard the story of his days after Harvard Law School, ascension to cult comic icon, and premature demise from his addiction.

We’ve interviewed nearly 60 people who help tell his story. From managers to his ex-wife, and many comedians, friends, producers, and entertainment journalists and writers — all to uncover what motivated this stand-up legend and the impact of his work.

Check out also media coverage of the book: a news story about the book in The Interrobang, and interviews with co-author Matt Balaker on the Comic’s Comic site and the Comedians Defying Gravity blog.

The book will be published in December 2018.
