- 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.
One of their favorite funny people, comic, writer and Comedy Central host Dave Attell joins Gilbert and Frank this week to talk about everything from Louis CK's cult Blaxploitation spoof "Pootie Tang" (featuring Dave in a small role) to Gilbert's controversial (and costly) tsunami jokes to Danny Kaye's (alleged) love affair with Sir Laurence Olivier. Also: Dave shares his passion for 70's-era porn, tells us why he doesn't consider himself a good actor and helps us dissect classic (and not-so-classic) movies like "Planet of the Apes," "The Magnificent Seven" and "The Tingler." PLUS: Tuesday Weld! Pat Morita! Hymie the Robot! The Three Stooges meet "The Dirty Dozen"! And Barbara Hershey becomes Barbara Seagull!
