David Zucker

Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast #182 November 20, 2017

Writer-director-producer David Zucker (“Airplane!,” “The Naked Gun,” “Kentucky Fried Movie”) sits down with Gilbert and Frank for a fascinating, hour-plus conversation about the rules of comedy, the challenges of parody, the uniqueness of “Who’s on First?” and the greatest hits (and misses) of the Marx Brothers. Also, Peter Graves takes offense, Vincent Price takes a pass, Woody Allen boxes a kangaroo and “ZAZ” lifts a plot from Charles Bronson. PLUS: “Top Secret!” “A Fistful of Yen”! In praise of Chevy Chase! John Byner sends up Robert Stack! And David remembers his old friend Leslie Nielsen.
