- 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.
Movie fanatics Gilbert and Frank place a call to one of the world's most recognized authorities on cinema -- author, critic and historian Leonard Maltin, who shares his thoughts on everything from the perils of fraternizing with filmmakers to the long-rumored "Curse of the Little Rascals." Also, Leonard remembers Hal Roach and Forrest Ackerman, gushes over Groucho and Jerry Lewis and tells us why "Casablanca" is the "perfect movie." PLUS: "Island of Lost Souls"! Wayne and Shuster! "Famous Monsters of Filmland"! Leonard shares the dais with Uncle Miltie! And "The Man Who Would Be Buckwheat"!
