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.
Veteran character actor Josh Mostel stops by Gilbert's apartment to dish dirt on everyone from Art Carney to Jack Palance to Meryl Streep and to share stories from his own 40-year career as well as the life/career of his famous dad, legendary performer Zero Mostel. Also, Josh co-stars with George Segal, gets advice from Robert Mitchum, "assaults" Paul Mazursky and tries to follow in the footsteps of John Belushi. PLUS: "Stoogemania"! "The Hot Rock"! The late, great Bruno Kirby! Josh sings "King Herod's Song"! Zero testifies before HUAC! And Marlon Brando seduces Josh's mom!
