Welcome to Idolizing Clowns.

I had planned a really nice post to get things started here about when and how my love of comedy and specifically comedians really started to take shape but alas life got in the way.

On September 29, 2010, comedian Greg Giraldo died of an accidental overdose. Greg is probably best known for his work as a judge on the reality show "Last Comic Standing" or one of his many appearances on the"Comedy Central Roats" specials. What most people are likely unaware of is that he earned a bachelor's degree from Columbia University and a law degree from Harvard. This was an incredibly smart man with all the potential in the world who chose to make others laugh.
