What's Eating Gilbert?
His shriek is one of the most recognizable sounds in pop culture. And whether he's playing a smartass parrot in Disney's Aladdin, a slimy businessman in Beverly Hills Cop or even his filthy self in The Aristocrats, Gilbert Gottfried is a straight-up scene-stealer. Audiences from every demo have fallen in love with the tiny, whiny comedian/actor/voice-over extraordinaire.
Though he's great when he's letting his shrill timbre carry the show honestly, anything in that voice is funny he's just gold when he's unhindered by the need to keep it PG. (His version of the Aristocrats joke is reason alone to catch the flick.) Gottfried visits the Laff Stop this weekend, where he'll no doubt riff on everything that's annoying him at the moment. A tidbit: Gottfried is the voice for everyone's favorite pitch animal, the AFLAC duck. Ask him how he gets into character when he takes the stage.
