Known for his intense delivery and intense material, standup comedian Greg Giraldo became famous thanks to his regular appearances on The Howard Stern Show, The Late Show with David Letterman, and the Comedy Central television network's series of celebrity roasts. Before he roasted folks like Chevy Chase, Pam Anderson, and William Shatner, Giraldo was a regular panelist on Comedy Central's Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn. Besides developing and starring in his own sitcom -- Common Law, which lasted one season in 1996 -- and his numerous talk show appearances, Giraldo has been featured in two Comedy Central Presents specials -- one in 2000, the other in 2004. Also in 2004, he appeared on Lazyboy's "Underwear Goes Inside the Pants," an international hit that topped digital electronica charts. In 2006 he released his debut album, Good Day to Cross a River, on Comedy Central's record label. Midlife Vices followed in 2009.
