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.
Ralph Malph himself, actor and singer Donny Most talks to Gilbert and Frank about his memories of working alongside TV icons Garry Marshall, Henry Winkler and Tom Bosley, his brush with John Lennon, his appreciation of Abbott & Costello (and Sid Fields) and his love of the Great American Songbook. Also, Donny meets Sammy Davis Jr., bends the elbow with Pat Morita, attempts to mount a Bobby Darin movie and sheds light on "jumping the shark." PLUS: Praising Jack Warden! Eli Wallach goes to school! Richie and Ralph play Huck and Tom! Larry Parks meets...Larry Parks! And Gottfried sings again!
