Words from comedian Whitney Cummings on the tragic death of Greg Giraldo. RIP
I don’t want to make Greg’s death about me, so I’m conflicted about even saying anything, but if by any chance you don’t already know, Greg was one of the best comedians working. He was fearless and frighteningly brilliant. He was insanely and unnecessarily kind. He inspired me to be a better, smarter, and harder working comedian. He made the job of comedian an honorable profession. He wasn’t just doing comedy so he could get in movies or whatever. After watching him work you thought about the world differently. After watching him perform I always felt stronger as a person but weaker as a comedian. I’m at a loss for what to say or do with regards to his passing but I encourage you to cherish his work. My heart is broken.
