#81: The Return of Penn Jillette
- Visual Arts
- 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.
Gilbert and Frank welcome back an old friend, illusionist, filmmaker and comedian Penn Jillette, who holds court on a host of offbeat topics ranging from strippers' tricks of the trade to Dennis Miller to the Three Stooges to summoning the spirit of Bela Lugosi. Also, Penn debunks "cold readings," exposes phone scams, insults Richie Havens and compares Jerry Lewis to Lou Reed. PLUS: The Amazing Kreskin! Penn auditions for "Ishtar"! Gilbert annoys Harrison Ford! And "The Day the Clown Cried”!
