The idea for this site in commemoration of Greg Giraldo is simple:

To make a permanent remembrance of the anniversary of the death of one of the great comedians of all time. He died tragically before he was able to build on what he had already established and make himself even greater. The idea for this site is from Matt Balaker and Wayne Jones, who published a biography of Greg, and we couldn’t imagine letting the date pass without some kind of commemoration. It’s a sad anniversary in a sense, but we want the site also to be a reminder and celebration of Greg’s comic talent.

If you have any comments or questions about anything here, please feel free to contact us any time

And if you have your own memory of Greg that you’d like us to add to the site — a selfie that you took with him, a short cellphone video where you retell one of your favorite jokes by Greg, something you’ve written that relates how funny he was, anything at all — we’d love to hear from you.
