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.
This week, Gilbert and Frank travel to Littlefield's in Brooklyn for a live, Super Week/NY Comic Con-themed episode with comic and radio host Jim Norton, who holds court on topics ranging from his friendship with Sherman (George Jefferson) Hemsley to his love of Jack Klugman to his admiration for "Midnight Cowboy" and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." Also, the boys break down celebrity conspiracy theories, sing the praises of actor Frank McRae and compare Louis CK's first sitcom to the groundbreaking shows of Norman Lear. PLUS: Moms Mabley! Iron Balls McGinty! Sammy Davis plugs "Skidoo"! Paul Lynde disses KISS! And Gilbert stakes out the Playboy mansion!
