- 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.
Revered character actor Dick Miller has appeared in nearly 200 movies and dozens of TV shows, working for directors Joe Dante, Steven Spielberg, Samuel Fuller, Robert Zemeckis and Martin Scorsese and sharing the screen with everyone from Boris Karloff to Arnold Schwarzenegger. Dick looks back on some unforgettable moments from his storied, six-decade career, reveals the odd turn of events that landed him in showbiz and reflects on his numerous collaborations with B-movie maestro Roger Corman. Also, Dick meets James Cagney, praises Rondo Hatton, disses The Ramones and writes "Which Way to the Front?" PLUS: "A Bucket of Blood"! Brother Theodore! "Rancho Bikini"! Dick (sort of) explains "The Terror"! And the mystery of the pink jacket!
