RIP Comedian Legend Greg Giraldo

RIP Comedian Greg Giraldo

I always like this cat on the Comedy Central roasts.. he was funny..

Here’s a snippet of his bio..courtesy of wikipedia

Giraldo was born in The Bronx and was raised in Queens. He attended Regis High School. He is the oldest son of immigrant parents from Colombia (father) and Spain (mother) and was raised Roman Catholic. From early on, he excelled academically and was selected to attend Camp Rising Sun, the Louis August Jonas Foundation’s international summer scholarship program. Giraldo attended Columbia University.

Before becoming a comedian, Giraldo worked as a lawyer, having graduated from Harvard Law School. Giraldo spent less than a year as an associate for Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom before deciding to change his occupation. Despite his prior career, Giraldo rejected that persona and very rarely discussed his days as a lawyer…

Return to Davey D’s Hip Hop Corner

Wayne Brady & Mike Tyson Hit the Stage and Re-Do Bobby Brown’s Hit Song ‘Every Little Step”

Ya gotta love comedian Wayne Brady. First of all dude is hella talented. Second because he surprises you as he seems to be always willing to push the boundaries and he has no problem poking fun of himself.

Back in the days when he was doing his variety/talk show folks used to clown and say Wayne was corny and very vanilla. In fact fellow comedian Paul Mooney remarked that Wayne was so white washed that he made news anchor Brian Gumble look like Malcolm X. Gumble also used to be criticized or bringing very ‘white washed’..

It wasn’t until comedian Dave Chappelle reached out to Brady and invited him his show to do the infamous Wayne Brady Terrorizes Dave Chappelle ala Training Day skit that folks really took notice and came to appreciate Wayne. Y’all remember this skit?
