[VIDEO] Flashback Friday Fights - When Greg Giraldo DESTROYED Denis Leary
It’s Friday, it’s a beautiful day and it’s time for the Flashback Friday Fight! This week’s is from one of my favorite shows that’s ever existed. Tough Crowd.
Tough Crowd was a roundtable show of comics, hosted by Colin Quinn that ran from 2002 to 2004. The show was topical, funny, always entertaining and sometimes could get heated. For the most part, even when heated, it was still kept light and funny as most of the comics on the show were all friends.
On this episode, Colin Quinn’s guests were Denis Leary, Greg Giraldo, Lenny Clarke and Sue Costello.
The segment starts out talking about North Korea (crazy 15 years ago) and things are going as they do on Tough Crowd. All the comics are getting in their points, it’s funny, light. At around the 3:20 mark, Giraldo brings up that maybe there’s a “nonviolent” way to deal with them… and that’s when it goes sideways.
The audio isn’t the best on this clip. After there’s also a sort of “behind the scenes” of this fight with better audio. Enjoy!
Here’s a breakdown of the fight from Leary and Quinn as well as some other comics.
