- 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.
Two time Tony-winning actor Matthew Broderick drops by the studio between theater performances to talk about his days as a struggling young actor, his friendship with "Max Dugan Returns" co-star Jason Robards, his love of Turner Classic Movies and his memories of working alongside legends like Sean Connery, Sidney Lumet, Neil Simon and Mel Brooks. Also, Matthew mimics Marlon Brando, lauds Jack Lemmon, defends "Godzilla" and runs afoul of the Secret Service. PLUS: "The 2000 Year Old Man"! Praising Christopher Walken! Peter Lorre blows the audition! Nathan Lane does Bert Lahr! And Bruno Kirby plots his revenge!
