#56: Richard Kind

- 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.
Sitcom and movie actor (and unabashed "Amazing Colossal Podcast" fan) Richard Kind drops by Gilbert's apartment to check out GG's memorabilia collection and to join Gilbert and Frank for a spirited discussion of the evils of censorship, the joy of onscreen female nudity and the twisted genius of Pat McCormick. Also, Richard auditions for "Cruising," duets with Jose Ferrer, gets "punk'd" by George Clooney and pays his respects to Soupy Sales. PLUS: Conrad Veidt! Professor Irwin Corey! Forrest Tucker plays the back "nine"! Jack Benny lusts after Gina Lollobrigida! And Tony Curtis dines with Captain Stubing!
