- PEOPLE GIVE HIM SHIT FOR NOTHAVING THIS HUGE CAREER,

BUT COMICS WERE ALWAYS LIKE,

"OH, YOU KNOW, COMEDY CENTRALGIVES HIM EVERYTHING."

- HERE'S YOUR HOST,GREG GIRALDO!

[cheers and applause]

- ROOT OF ALL EVIL.

HE WAS, LIKE,AUTOMATICALLY ON THE LIST

JUST TO SEE IF HE REALLY

WAS A HARVARD LAWYER.

IF STRIP CLUBS ARE SO BAD,

WHY ARE THEY CALLEDGENTLEMEN'S CLUBS?

- THAT'S JUST ANOTHER LIE,YOUR HONOR.

GENTLEMEN'S CLUBS.THERE'S NO GENTLEMEN IN THERE.

YOU NEVER HEAR THINGS LIKE,"OH, I SAY, OLD MAN,

"HAVE YOU SEEN THE NIPPLESON THE ENCHANTRESS

IN THE RUBBER THONG?"

- HE WAS ALWAYS ON THE SIDE

THAT WAS GONNAPROBABLY LOSE.

WHICH IS PART OF THE REASONWE PUT HIM THERE,

BECAUSE HE'S THE ONETHAT WOULD PRESENT THE BEST

AND THE FUNNIEST ARGUMENT.

- IT'S AMAZINGTHAT WE LIVE IN A TIME

WHERE I USE THE SAMEMACHINE TO MASTURBATE

THAT I USE TO TEACHMY KIDS TO SPELL.

- HE WAS A GUYWE COULD COUNT ON

WHEN WE NEEDED A GREAT SETFROM SOMEBODY.

HE WAS THE GUYWE ALWAYS THOUGHT OF

FOR PARTICULAR SHOWSAND PILOTS.

LIKE, WE WANT TO FIND A WAYTO GET HIM ON THERE

AND GIVE HIM A SHOT.

WE SORTA CONSIDERED HIMA PART OF THE FAMILY.

- IT'S A COMEDY SHOWABOUT SEX.

IT'LL BE GREAT.

IT'S A TOPIC EVERYONECAN RELATE TO.

AND IT WON'T BE GRATUITOUSOR LOW-BROW HUMOR.

I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT A BUNCHOF CHEAP SEX JOKES.

I'M TALKING ABOUTA SMART LOOK

AT THE STATE OF SEXUALITY

IN CONTEMPORARYAMERICAN SOCIETY.

AH, [bleep].

SO WHAT DO YOU THINK?

- WHATEVER.

- PEOPLE ALWAYS TALKED ABOUT

THAT GREG HAD A TON OF PILOTSTHAT DIDN'T WORK.

AND, I MEAN,I THINK THAT'S TRUE

OF A LOT OF REALLYTALENTED PEOPLE.

- AS THEY SAY,THE CREAM RISES TO THE TOP.

AND JUST BECAUSETHE THINGS THAT HE DID

DIDN'T NECESSARILYTAKE OFF IN THE MANNER

THAT I THINK THEY COULD HAVEOR SHOULD HAVE,

IT'S NOT LIKE HE GOES BACKTO THE BACK OF THE LINE

AS A TALENTED PERFORMER.

- COMEDIANS RESPECT HIM.AUDIENCES RESPECT HIM.

THE WORK IS ALL THERE.

IT'S DIGITAL.IT'S ON THE INTERNET.

THERE ARE PEOPLEON OTHER PLANETS

WATCHING HIM RIGHT NOW,HIGHER LIFE-FORMS,

DECIDING WHETHER OR NOTTO INVADE

BASED ON GREG'S COMEDY.

AND THAT ENDURES,YOU KNOW?

EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE

THERE'S A CELEBRITYCHECKS INTO THE HOSPITAL

BECAUSE SHE'S EXHAUSTED.

YOU ALWAYS HEARTHEY WENT IN THE HOSPITAL

BECAUSE THEY WERE EXHAUSTED.

HOW EXHAUSTED DO YOU HAVETO BE TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL?

I MEAN, I'VE BEENPRETTY DAMN TIRED.

I JUST TAKEA LITTLE NAPPY-POO.

AND I WAKE UP,AND I'M LIKE,

"WOW, CANCELTHE AMBULANCE, HONEY.
