Not Geraldo. Giraldo!

If you've ever seen an episode of Tough Crowd With Colin Quinn or a Comedy Central roast, then you've probably experienced the comedic stylings of one Greg Giraldo. Name not ringing a bell? He's usually the guy on stage that has to stand there and take crap from other comedians about his career (or lack thereof). Giraldo's had almost as many failed pilots as American Airlines and was once called "a talented comedian with a winning personality" by none other than The New York Times. Ouch. "Hey, Greg--yeah, it's me, The Times. I've been meaning to tell you something; I don't think we should see each other anymore. It's not you, it's me. Seriously, you're a talented comedian with a winning personality, Greg. I just don't have time for a boyfriend right now." Pity poor Greg Giraldo this weekend at the Addison Improv, 309 Curtis Mathews Way, Suite 147. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Thursday, 7 and 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Tickets are $17 to $20.
