A Note From The Publisher

greg giraldoWhile printing, the comedy industry lost stars whose careers and words are featured within. It is acknowledged with deep sorrow that

Robert Schimmel passed on September 3, 2010; and with great sadness that

Greg Giraldo’s lifetime in comedy was tragically cut short on September 29, 2010.

Rest in peace and laughter.

Performers, especially comedians, are a special breed. The great performers have the ability to bare their souls, their inner truth, thoughts, to share pain, failures and entertain the public with that. Comedians make us laugh at it.

The stars we can not forget seem to share an almost inhuman deafness to rejection, a passion and a drive that one could only relate to a self-made billionaire. The difference is that the performers who make a lasting impression on us, do not do it for money. They feed off of an audience; comedians need laughter for fulfillment.

  • Who helped and inspired them
