Socially provocative and yet broadly funny Greg Giraldo has become one of the most versatile and highly entertaining comics working today.
This past season Greg hosted "Stand-Up Nation with Greg Giraldo" on Comedy Central, every Friday at 9pm (8pm central). It's a full night of comedy from some of today's top stand-ups plus a monologue from Greg on the events of the week along with interviews in-studio with guest comedians as well as field piece. Greg also is a fixture in the highly rated annual Comedy Central Roast. Over the past 4 seasons he has been a stand out on the roasts for celebrities such as Chevy Chase, Jeff Foxworthy, Pam Anderson and most recently William Shatner.
Prior to hosting his own show, Greg was a regular panelist on "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn" which aired for three seasons on Comedy Central. Greg has had two half-hour stand-up specials for Comedy Central Presents and performed on Comedy Central's year-end special "Last Laugh" in 2004 and 2005. He has also appeared on "Late Show with David Letterman" (CBS) several times, and has been a guest on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" (NBC) over a dozen times.
Greg developed and starred in his own ABC sitcom, "Common Law," which was loosely based on his experiences at a New York law firm. He also created and starred in sitcom pilots for NBC and CBS.
In 2004, Greg partnered with European producers LazyBoy on a hit modern rock/electronic song released by Universal/Motown Records called "Underwear Goes Inside the Pants." The song was the #1 most downloaded song on Itunes in the electronic music category, and an international hit appearing on the charts in America and many other countries including Australia where it rose to #4.
When Greg is not touring comedy clubs, colleges, theaters and corporate events, he can be found living in New York City with his wife and three young boys.
