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 two stars of the wildly popular comedy series, "Impractical Jokers," Brian "Q" Quinn and Sal Vulcano, for an insightful and informative discussion of "Diff'rent Strokes," disappointing Batman villains, ugly babies, the dangers of hidden camera pranks and the genius of Chuck Barris. Also, the boys bash "Legends of the Superheroes," Sal acts out scenes from "The Jeffersons," Gilbert dines with Al Lewis and Q's nana dates Cesar Romero (!) PLUS: Denny Dillon! Rondo Hatton redux! Deconstructing the "Good Times" theme! The poetry of Max Gottfried! And Gilbert voices Mister Mxyzptlk!
