Chevy Chase RoastGreg Giraldo, back when he had shorter hair, made something great out of every single roast he ever did.
Not only did Chevy Chase actually kind of look offended, but Greg Giraldo, a relative unknown then, did an amazing job of taking a comedy legend and reducing him to "you've been in over 40 films and the biggest movie star up here is Al Franken."
William Shatner RoastClick here to view Greg Giraldo tear William Shatner, and everyone else in the room, a new one.
Most often, the greatest moments Greg Giraldo had were when he compared the previous presenters to things like "a bald Nathan Lane." He never passed up an opportunity to tell a hot sex symbol how many times he masturbated to them when he was younger.

He starts out tearing Kathy Griffin a new one, compares her to something hilarious, and then proceeds to make fun of everyone in the room. He's so great at knowing exactly who's going to be in the room and not making anybody feel left out of the glorious, glorious roasting.
His Tom Arnold bit is the best part of this clip.
He was one of the first people to make an actually-funny David Carradine joke shortly after his death.

Not only being able to make fun of Hulk Hogan, but Pamela Anderson.
One of his greatest lines was when he told Pamela Anderson she helped him "spill more seed than Muhammed Ali at a bird feeder."
