Quotes of Greg Giraldo

#Quote
1The hardest part, for real, is probably when you just don't feel like going on stage and being funny.
2The things that make me laugh are considered smart or whatever, I guess. But stuff that's self-consciously intelligent or self-consciously hip or cool, that doesn't do it for me either. You just try to be funny.
3The reality is I'm not this person with this driving 'get it done' attitude.
4The reality is I'm not a 'get knocked down and come back harder' kind of guy.
5Why do we need another station where everyone has a gun? We already have BET.
6Some people are just really goofy kind of guitar acts, and they go out and do these colleges and start making a fortune pretty early on. And other people - I know guys who are great comics, who've done the Letterman show many times, who still barely pay their bills.
7If you spend five minutes with me or watch me try to balance my checkbook, you can only imagine the disaster I would make of anyone's legal issues.
8There are no black people in Iraq, so how will they know who to shoot at?
9Little did I know that earning a living at stand-up is the hardest thing you can do. But once I started doing it, I just loved it, and I realized that I was actually kinda good at it, and then that was it.
10I've always had real trouble knowing what my actual desires and goals are. I've just been dragged along by fate.
11It's hard to distinguish when I was actually struggling from when I only felt like I was struggling - which was pretty much always.
12[on Christianity] The Virgin Mary... We have a whole religion based on a woman who really stuck to her story.
