- 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.
To mark the 25th anniversary of the release of the cult classic black comedy "Problem Child" (July 27, 1990), Gilbert and Frank reached out to Junior himself, former child star Michael Oliver, to talk about his memories of co-stars John Ritter and Jack Warden, his battles with the film's producers and his struggles to lead a normal life off-screen. Also, Gilbert carries the "Problem Child" torch, PETA protests the movie's ad campaign, and Michael turns his back on showbiz. PLUS: "Drexel's Class"! Macaulay Culkin! "The Munsters Today"! The Beach Boys get into the act! And Gilbert "plays" Robert Redford!
