Giraldo grew up in the upper middle class neighborhood of Queens, New York City, along with his two siblings. He attended Regis High School in Manhattan, matriculating in 1983, and then enrolled at Columbia University, graduating with a BA degree in English. He then attended Harvard Law School, graduating in 1990 with a law degree.

Prior to turning to comedy, Giraldo briefly worked as an associate for Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom law firm in New York City. In 1992, he gave up his law career and began performing stand-up comedy in clubs such as Manhattan’s Comedy Cellar. While performing at the 1995 Just for Laughs festival in Montreal, he was discovered by Hollywood agents, who offered him the starring role of lawyer John Alvarez in the short-lived ABC sitcom “Common Law”. His net worth started to rise.

In the early 2000s, Giraldo began performing stand-up on Comedy Central Presents, soon becoming a recognized figure among the network’s fans. He made appearances in a number of popular shows for Comedy Central and NBC, such as “Late Night with Conan O’Brien“, “Last Call with Carson Daly“, “The View”, “The Colin Quinn Show”, “Late Show with David Letterman“, “Lewis Black’s Root of All Evil” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”. He served as a regular panelist on “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn“, and all added to his wealth.

In 2005 he wrote, executive produced and hosted his own shows for Comedy Central, “The Greg Giraldo Show”, “Gone Hollywood” and “Friday Night Stand-Up with Greg Giraldo”. He also wrote and appeared in the network’s shows “Just For Laughs” and “Adult Content with Greg Giraldo”, and had his own stand-up special, the 2009 “Greg Giraldo: Midlife Vices”. He served as a judge on the NBC reality television talent show “Last Comic Standing”, and appeared as a panelist on Jerry Seinfeld’s “The Marriage Ref” reality show and panel game, all of which considerably contributed to his popularity, and to his net worth as well.

Aside from his career in television, Giraldo was also involved in the film industry, having minor roles in “Game Day”, “Choices”, “Comedian”, “Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work” and “I Am Comic”.

Although his career included various comedy-related projects, it was the Comedy Central roast series that put Giraldo on the map and boosted his popularity the most. Those included roasts of Joan Rivers, Chevy Chase, Flavor Flav, Bob Saget, Pamela Anderson, William Shatner, Jeff Foxworthy, and Larry the Cable Guy. Giraldo’s last appearance on Comedy Central was in mid-2010, in “The Comedy Central Roast of David Hasselhoff“.

When it comes to his personal life, Giraldo was married twice. His first marriage was in his mid-20s, and lasted only two years. In 1999 he married a comedy club waitress named Maryann, with whom he had three children. The couple separated in 2008, but had several reconciliations after that. The comedian died from what was reported as an accidental prescription-drug overdose, on 29 September 2010, although Giraldo had struggled with drugs and alcohol throughout his career. However, in his most recent interviews, he spoke of being sober, with only occasional slip-ups.

1The hardest part, for real, is probably when you just don't feel like going on stage and being funny.
2The things that make me laugh are considered smart or whatever, I guess. But stuff that's self-consciously intelligent or self-consciously hip or cool, that doesn't do it for me either. You just try to be funny.
3The reality is I'm not this person with this driving 'get it done' attitude.
4The reality is I'm not a 'get knocked down and come back harder' kind of guy.
5Why do we need another station where everyone has a gun? We already have BET.
6Some people are just really goofy kind of guitar acts, and they go out and do these colleges and start making a fortune pretty early on. And other people - I know guys who are great comics, who've done the Letterman show many times, who still barely pay their bills.
7If you spend five minutes with me or watch me try to balance my checkbook, you can only imagine the disaster I would make of anyone's legal issues.
8There are no black people in Iraq, so how will they know who to shoot at?
9Little did I know that earning a living at stand-up is the hardest thing you can do. But once I started doing it, I just loved it, and I realized that I was actually kinda good at it, and then that was it.
10I've always had real trouble knowing what my actual desires and goals are. I've just been dragged along by fate.
11It's hard to distinguish when I was actually struggling from when I only felt like I was struggling - which was pretty much always.
12[on Christianity] The Virgin Mary... We have a whole religion based on a woman who really stuck to her story.

3Was a lawyer for less than a year before he changed his profession to comedy.
4Despite his multiple appearances on the Comedy Central Roasts, being a series regular on Lewis Black's Root of All Evil (2008), and even having his own show on the network, he had only one stand-up special on Comedy Central, which was the 2009 "Greg Giraldo: Midlife Vices" (2009) (TV)_ show.
5On March 18, 2011, Comedy Central aired a tribute to Greg titled Give It Up for Greg Giraldo (2011). Fellow comedians Sarah Silverman, 'Nick Swardson'', Lewis Black, Conan O'Brien, Denis Leary, Dave Attell, and Jeffrey Ross (to name a few) gave very emotional heartfelt condolences to Greg.
