- 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.
The Halloween celebration continues with the grandson of horror icon Lon Chaney Jr., actor and makeup artist Ron Chaney, who shares warm memories of his famous granddad and recounts the silent film career of his legendary great-grandfather, "Man of a Thousand Faces" Lon Chaney. Later, Gilbert realizes a lifelong dream when he speaks with former child actress Janet Ann Gallow, who recalls working with both Chaney Jr. and Bela Lugosi in 1942's "Ghost of Frankenstein." PLUS: "The Hunchback of Notre Dame"! The return of Maria Ouspenskaya! Gilbert does Ygor! Janet slaps Lou Costello! And Lon Chaney inspires Groucho!
