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 welcome back actor, raconteur and GGACP superfan Richard Kind, who waxes nostalgic about everything from "Soldier in the Rain" to "My Favorite Martian" to working alongside Robert Conrad, Charles Grodin, Martin Short and the Coen Brothers. Also, Frank Gorshin turns on the charm, Slappy White teams with Steve Rossi, Gilbert drops a dime on Eugene Pallette and Richard defends "Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol." PLUS: Nick Apollo Forte! "The Bird with the Crystal Plumage"! Uncle Goopy reveals all! Praising M. Emmett Walsh! And Phil Collins meets Henry Mancini!
