Lisa Lampanelli commented on the joke that Gilbert Gottfried made after the death of Greg Giraldo.
Gilbert made a joke on Twitter saying, “If Greg Giraldo is cremated, will that be the ‘Greg Giraldo Roast’?”
A lot of people though that was disrespectful considering Greg had just passed, but Lisa Lampanelli loved the joke.
Lisa was pretty close with Greg and they did all of the Comedy Central Roasts together, and she thought the joke was great.
Lisa said, “You don’t do the Roasts like we do without having a sense of humor about it.”
She also said that Gilbert wasn’t being insensitive with the joke, “That’s every comic, We make jokes about the stuff we’re about to cry about. So instead of, like, avoiding your feelings by eating or drinking or whatever, he makes jokes. That’s what we all do. But I do the eating part, too, and a lot of people do the drinking.”
Props to Lisa Lampanelli. If you’ve ever watch Greg’s comedy, she’s probably right.
