- 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.
In their final episode of the year, Gilbert and Frank pay tribute to some of the stars and talents we lost in 2015, including Wes Craven, Stan Freberg, Omar Sharif, Yvonne "Batgirl" Craig and former GGACP guest Joe Franklin. Also, Gilbert remembers screen goddess Laura Antonelli and "Star Trek Compendium" author Allan Asherman shares his thoughts on the legendary Leonard Nimoy. PLUS: Roger Ramjet! "Love on a Rooftop"! Buddy Hackett disses Jack Carter! Christopher Lee, Nazi hunter! And the greatest Tevye of all time!
