- Visual Arts
- TV & Film
Comedian and actor Gilbert Gottfried, a man Stephen King once called “a national treasure,” talks with the show business legends, icons and behind-the-scenes talents who shaped his childhood and influenced his comedy.
Along with co-host and fellow pop culture fanatic Frank Santopadre, Gilbert is joined by comics, actors, musicians, talk show hosts, writers and other eyewitnesses to Hollywood history, including Bruce Dern, Chevy Chase, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Adam West, Steve Buscemi, Micky Dolenz, Jim Gaffigan, Judd Apatow and DOZENS more, for a funny, frenetic, fly-on-the-wall look at showbiz then and now (but mostly then.)
Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast was named "Best Podcast of 2015" by the Village Voice and one of iTunes' "Best of 2014." It has been featured in Rolling Stone, Wired and the Los Angeles Times.
Gilbert and Frank return to the famed New York Friar's Club to chat with comedian and actor Jim Gaffigan, who weighs in on subjects ranging from the lost art of "ethnic comedy" to the healing powers of stand-up to the caste system of show business. Also, Jim "opens" for the Pope, treads the boards with Jackie Gleason's grandson, struggles to capture Manhattan on film and writes ads for Downy and Hardee's. PLUS: Myron Cohen! Nat Hiken! The hunchback makes out! The genius of Cloris Leachman! And the "biggest Goy in the world"!
