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.
To mark the 40th anniversary of the debut of "Saturday Night Live" (October 11, 1975) Gilbert and Frank dial up original cast member Laraine Newman, who reflects on her four-plus decades in comedy and shares recollections of working with everyone from Richard Pryor to Karen Black to the legendary Christoper Lee. Also, Laraine studies mime with Marcel Marceau, befriends Dudley Moore, improvises with Pat Morita and recalls SNL's infamous "Uncle Roy" sketches. PLUS: Jack Soo! "Invaders from Mars"! Louise Lasser locks herself in her dressing room! Gilbert channels Jackie Vernon! And Uncle Miltie's schlong helps win the war!
