- 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.
In a special live episode recorded at Caroline's on Broadway (in association with the 2015 New York Comedy Festival), Gilbert and Frank are joined (once again) by comedian and actor Artie Lange, who holds court on a host of topics, including his tumultuous stint at "Mad-TV," his love of Woody Allen's "Take the Money and Run" and his grandfather's fondness for "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." Also, Tom Cruise loses his cool, Jack Benny bests George Burns, Bill Cosby tutors young "talent" and Gilbert and Howard Stern share a scene from a spaghetti western. PLUS: Lee Marvin gets busted! Sammy Davis sheds a tear! Artie channels Robert Shaw! Johnny Carson roasts Redd Foxx! And the return of Ray J. Johnson, Jr!
