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 connect with one of their favorite character actors, the funny and versatile Stuart Margolin, who looks back on his 55-year career in films and television and shares stories about everything from "Love American Style" to "Death Wish" to his pop songwriting career to his decades-long friendship with "Rockford Files" co-star James Garner. Also, Stuart directs Uncle Miltie, casts Marvin Gaye, imitates Maxwell Smart and pens a tune for Johnny Fontane. PLUS: Richard Mulligan! "Evil Roy Slade"! Julie Andrews sheds her image! Stuart boards "The Big Bus"! And the strange tale of "Lanigan's Rabbi"!
