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.
Gilbert and Frank take a look back at some of the best moments of an unforgettable year, featuring a lineup of memorable guests, including Dick Van Dyke, Michael McKean, Lee Grant, Bob "Super Dave" Einstein and Matthew Broderick, to name a few. Also, Pat Cooper rants, Bruce Dern praises Gilbert, Peter Bogdanovich classes up the joint and George Takei spanks William Shatner. PLUS: Dueling Paul Williams! Uncle Junior sings! Dick Cavett strips! The wonder of Bob Hope's "Joys"! And the fascinating journey of Al Jaffee!
