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.
53 years ago this week, the hugely popular sitcom "The Beverly Hillbillies" debuted on CBS (September 26, 1962) so Gilbert and Frank tracked down the last surviving original cast member, actor/director Max Baer, Jr., to talk about his memories of working with co-stars Irene Ryan, Donna Douglas and Buddy Ebsen and guest star Phil Silvers. Also, Max hangs with the Rat Pack, sets the record straight about his famous dad (prizefighter Max Baer) and details his 15-year struggle to build a "Beverly Hillbillies"-themed hotel and casino. PLUS: "Surfside 6"! Doodles Weaver! Max heckles Uncle Miltie! Elly May dates Elvis! And Gilbert tries to get a word in edgewise!
