- 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.
Emmy-winning actors (and husband and wife!) Ron Leibman and Jessica Walter join Gilbert and Frank for a loving and laughter-filled look at some of their most memorable film and TV projects, including "The Hot Rock," "Play Misty for Me," "Where's Poppa?" "Up the Academy" and "Archer." Also, Ron mimics Walter Brennan, Jessica remembers Raymond Burr, Gilbert covers Bobby Vinton, and Jerry Lewis "borrows" from Harry Ritz. PLUS: Godfrey Cambridge! Art Metrano! "Zorro the Gay Blade"! The return of Rickie Layne and Velvel! And "Won Ton Ton, the Dog Who Saved Hollywood"!
