- 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.
This week, the not-to-be-missed Part Two of our one-year anniversary episode as actor Craig Bierko, illustrator Drew Friedman, comedy writer Tom Leopold, writer-producer Bill Persky and musician Paul Shaffer join Gilbert and Frank for a fascinating (true!) and fast-paced (not really) dialogue on topics too trivial to ignore! Also, Craig salutes the comic villainy of Dabney Coleman, Bill tries to keep the Bums in Brooklyn, Drew grills "old Groucho" and Paul and Tom recall the unforgettable "Viva Shaf Vegas"! PLUS: The legend of Harry Crane! The balladry of Nipsey Russell! The return of Maria Ouspenskaya! And Gilbert sings "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance"!
