Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast #243 January 20, 2019

Gilbert and Frank are joined by Emmy-winning writer and Tony-winning composer David Yazbek (“The Full Monty,” “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” “The Band’s Visit”) for a funny and freewheeling conversation about the golden age of kiddie show hosts, the comedy albums of Spike Jones and Allan Sherman, the long-lost era of Top 40 radio and the trials (and triumphs) of composing music for the Broadway stage. Also, Jerry Lewis goes to therapy, Larry David whistles a happy tune, Gilbert remembers Kathleen Freeman and David weighs in on the “Baby, it’s Cold Outside” controversy. PLUS: Umm Kulthum! “The Sammy Maudlin Show”! “Richard Kind Theater”! Moe Howard meets Officer Joe Bolton! And David critiques Gilbert’s “musical” abilities!
