    Laughspin Podcast, episode 92: Gilbert Gottfried talks new podcast, Aflac, SNL, Shakespeare and more!

    On this week’s episode of The Laughspin Podcast, I sat down with the legendary, iconic and often controversial Gilbert Gottfried. And here’s a little behind-the-scenes info on what went down that day I visited his New York apartment. Gottfried greets me at his door in a bathrobe and little else. Scandalous! I’m assuming he was wearing drawers. Though I was afraid I had mixed up the time of our appointment,

    Oddball Playboy video with Gilbert Gottfried and Camille Grammer explained

    A few days ago, the folks at Vulture posted a vintage oddball video starring comedian Gilbert Gottfried. And I thought, ‘I’ve seen that before!

    Watch Bert from 'Sesame Street' interview Saturday Night Live's Andy Samberg

    I’ll level with everyone. When I’m not watching comedy programming, I’m watching PBS Kids. Two reasons: 1. I have a two year old son. 2. I fucking love PBS Kids.

If you have a good sense of humor, you’re going to like it. My

    Watch Gilbert Gottfried's amazingly NSFW trailer for "Rubber Balls and Liquor"

    Controversial comedian Gilbert Gottfried will unleash his new book Rubber Balls and Liquor on the masses one week from today. As any even semi-proficient comedy enthusiast knows, Gottfried’s stage act is completely opposite of the roles the mainstream has seen him in– he voices one of the main characters in a PBS cartoon, for poop’s sake. Anyway, this trailer for the book illustrates that dichotomy perfectly. If you’re at work,
