- 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 sit down for a memorable (and rare) interview with comedian, actor, writer and original "Saturday Night Live" cast member Chevy Chase, who reminisces about co-stars Dan Aykroyd, Randy Quaid and Rodney Dangerfield and reveals why he turned down iconic roles in "Animal House," "Ghostbusters," "American Beauty" and "Forrest Gump." Also, Chevy reprimands Desi Arnaz, roughs it up with Bill Murray, rides a roller coaster with Eddie Bracken and runs afoul of Cary Grant. PLUS: Sid Caesar's strange superstition! The Land Shark strikes again! "Planet of the Cheap Special Effects"! Gilbert covers Barry Manilow! And the mystery of the Munchkin suicide!
