    Man, who is going to be the unknown hilarious guy at the Comedy Central Roasts now?

    All joking aside, Greg was a funny guy and definitely deserves an Honorary Man Card for his contributions to comedy as well as having the balls to make fun of anyone, no matter what.

    RIP Greg, thanks for some laugh out loud moments!
