Giraldo is a comic who was taken away too soon. And Midlife Vices is proof of that aforementioned statement. He humorously tackles social issues while making very logical points all along the way. Topics include gay marriage, immigration, childhood obesity, and stem cell research. My favorite joke on the album is when he talks about marriage/relationships. He says, “You can’t discriminate someone for being who they are. I don’t choose to be attracted to women. I just happen to be attracted to women and it sucks because every 10 years or so, I have to give half my shit away and start from scratch.” R.I.P. Mr. Giraldo- one of the greatest stand-up comics to ever step up to a mic.
