- 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.
Actor, comic, writer, historian and movie buff Robert Wuhl joins Gilbert and Frank at the famed New York Friars Club for a funny and freewheeling discussion of random topics, including the sins of Ty Cobb, the genius of John Ford, the excellence of Ealing comedies, the (alleged) affairs of Clark Gable and the versatility of Michael Keaton. Also, Robert turns down "Problem Child," praises "Cat Ballou," remembers Bruno Kirby and reveals the secret history of the Academy Awards. PLUS: Rod Steiger holds a grudge! Robert De Niro mugs! Bacharach woos Dylan! Paul Newman's favorite joke! And the REAL "Crash" Davis!
