If you’re not aware, famed comedian and actor Gilbert Gottfried recently released a new podcast entitled Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast! where he and his co-host Frank Santopadre discuss old Hollywood with celebrities the likes of Dick Cavett, Larry Storch and many more. To get the scoop, we spoke with him about why he wanted to start a podcast, what he has in store for future episodes and much more!
First off, congratulations on the success of the podcast, it’s doing great. What was the catalyst for wanting to do a podcast in the first place?
Well it’s Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast and you can listen it on gilbertgottfried.com and subscribe to it on iTunes. I still am behind the times. I mean if you asked me what a podcast was, I would have a hard time telling you. I just knew that everyone else was doing them. I figured I wanted to talk about something that I had some interest in and my interest was always really old Hollywood, like old movies and TV shows and obscure facts about them and obscure actors. So I started doing that, and we got Dick Cavett because he’s interviewed John and Yoko, Groucho (Marx), Katharine Hepburn, Bette Davis, and Carlo (Rizzi) from the Godfather. According to him, he’s killed three people, or at least three that he can admit too. I guess the statute of limitations has run out on those murders and if he’s lying, I’m certainly not going to say it to his face. He claims he’s had sex with Marilyn Monroe and so far Marilyn Monroe hasn’t come forth to dispute it, so I have no reason to doubt it. The Kennedy’s haven’t spoken up about it, or Joe DiMaggio.
