Gilbert Gottfried

Monday, July 04, 2011

Comedian Gilbert Gottfried talks about his career and about writing his first humor book, Rubber Balls and Liquor. It’s a mix of jokes, memoir, anecdotes, and observational humor. He tells how he landed the one-word role as the voice of the animated Aflac duck (and how he lost that job), and about his now-famous Friars Club performance two weeks after 9/11.
