Greg Giraldo: the never before seen 35-minute video interview

You may have already read my remembrance of Greg Giraldo. If not, it’s barely important you do to appreciate this– which is a totally uncut video interview I did with Giraldo in March of this year at Comix comedy club in New York City. No one has seen it. I just watched it for the first time last night. Because of tech problems and other boring reasons, we hadn’t been able to post it. But we were kind of determined to push through those problems now– maybe too late. Maybe it’s perfect timing?

Just so you know. What you’re about to see is not, by any means, a polished interview. It’s not at all edited; it’s one shot of a two camera shoot. But the audio and video is good. And most importantly, you get a great sense of what Greg was like off stage. You also get a good sense of how shitty of an interviewer I could be. Even though I got to interact with Greg every now and then over the course of the last five years, I still got a bit nervous around him– the way you do when you really respect someone and don’t want to come off as a complete toolbox, but then you do anyway, because you’re trying too hard not to. Get it? I’m sure you can relate. Point is, a few years ago, my Jeff Dunham interview came out amazing.

Ok. Exposition done. Enjoy.

    Hah haa! Loved the Jeff Dunham comment. ;)
    Thanks so much for this, sweet rambling Greg… he was the best.

    You know…I actually like it unedited. It’s more down-to-earth, and…real.

    You did an awesome job.

    I’m glad you posted this anyway, despite the technical problems. You did good.
