Gilbert Gottfried usually sits down in his own New York City apartment with the Hollywood legends and behind-the-scenes talents who shaped his childhood and influenced his comedy for his popular new podcast “Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast!”  But last Sunday, Gilbert decided to bring the show to Carolines on Broadway to tape in  front of a live audience.  Joined by co-host and fellow showbiz obsessive Frank Santopadre, Gilbert sat down with comedian Lewis Black for an hour plus of hilarity that kept the crowd rolling with laughter and hanging on every word of their true Hollywood stories.

Gilbert talks to comics, actors, singers, voice artists, talk show hosts, writers, show runners and other eyewitnesses to Hollywood history, including the likes of Dick Cavett, Henry Winkler, David Steinberg, Weird Al Yankovic, Billy West, Barbara Feldon, Paul Shaffer, Bob Saget, Micky Dolenz and more, as they share fond memories and personal anecdotes of show business then and now (but mostly then).

Stay tuned, as Gilbert plans to bring the show back to Carolines on Broadway again!
