#66: Rhonda Shear
- Visual Arts
- 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.
It's "Gilbert & Frank After Dark" when the boys ring up Gilbert's old "Up All Night" co-host, former Miss Louisiana and B-movie queen Rhonda Shear, who looks back on her early days as a struggling actress and dishes dirt on everyone from Red Buttons to Wilt Chamberlain to Jackie Mason. Also: Rhonda poses for Playboy, dates Donny Most (and Glenn Frey), studies with Eric Von Zipper and hams it up with Don Adams and Don Rickles. PLUS: Tales from the casting couch! "Prison-A-Go-Go!" The Mighty Carson Art Players! Chuck Barris eats a hard-boiled egg! And Henny Youngman's last stand!
