Comedian, actor and voice artist Gilbert Gottfried -- a man Stephen King once called “a national treasure" -- takes an affectionate look back at 100+ years of Hollywood history with some of the show business legends 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 actors, directors, writers, comics, musicians, talk show hosts and other eyewitnesses to Hollywood history, including Dick Van Dyke, Bruce Dern, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Michael McKean, Leonard Maltin, Chevy Chase, Judd Apatow, Peter Bogdanovich, Dick Cavett, Steve Buscemi, Micky Dolenz, Bob Costas, Amy Heckerling and MANY more, for a fond, funny, fly-on-the-wall look at showbiz then and now (but mostly then.) The Village Voice recently named Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast! the “Best Podcast of 2015” and the show has been featured in Rolling Stone, Wired, Splitsider and the Los Angeles Times.
