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.
To celebrate the podcast's one-year anniversary, Gilbert and Frank round up an all-star cast of their favorite guests -- Craig Bierko, Drew Friedman, Tom Leopold, Bill Persky and Paul Shaffer -- for a lively, no-holds-barred discussion of a host of essential topics, ranging from George Kirby's drug bust to the rumored love affair between Clark Gable and Andy Devine. Also: Paul plays the "Hogan's Heroes" theme, Tom obssesses over George Maharis, Craig praises Don Knotts, Drew stalks Brando and Bill babysits Orson Welles. PLUS: Troy Donahue! Jack Palance! Mario Lanza takes his revenge! Brian Wilson meets Jay Silverheels! And the return of Rickie Layne and Velvel!
