- 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.
Tony-nominated actor, singer and comedian Mario Cantone drops by Manhattan's Nutmeg Studios to regale Gilbert and Frank with inside-showbiz stories about everyone from Paul Lynde to Robert Redford to Lauren Bacall. Also, Mario crushes on Jan-Michael Vincent, tours London with Marty Krofft, treads the boards with Patrick Stewart and searches for Sammy Davis' eye. PLUS: Monty Clift visits Merv! Bette Davis trashes Faye Dunaway! Richard Simmons kidnaps Famous Amos! And Gilbert (and Mario) sing the theme from "The Sterile Cuckoo"!
